I’m a psychiatric nurse practitioner specializing in ADHD, depression, anxiety, and transgender mental health. I believe meaningful mental healthcare is more than just a pill. You want someone who’ll talk through your concerns, listen to your needs, and develop a treatment plan tailored to you. Alongside medication, I focus on patient education, therapy, and coaching. If you are looking for holistic and thoughtful care, I would love to meet you.

Greetings! Welcome to our multidisciplinary practice of counselors & psychiatric practitioners. Our group, TMS of Silicon Valley was founded by Dr. Saad Shakir with offices from San Jose to our northern most site in Corte Madera. We are unusual because we focus on TMS & nasal Esketamine, plus standard psychopharmacology (drug therapy). In addition, we are open to new ideas from Integrative/Functional Medicine. We see most ages & are an inclusive, welcoming practice for everyone. We can accept all insurances except Medi-Cal, or cash. Our staff can help with any questions. I enjoy psychiatric practice & invite you to join us for care.

Hello! My name is Dr.Ruth Rayikanti, MD. I am an SF native, resident, & currently working as a Psychiatrist & a consultant. I believe the key to being a solid Psychiatrist is to be a human first before any professional degrees or titles. Hence, my most memorable experiences have been with one-to-one patient interactions and just being in that moment as two human beings above anything else. Evidence based treatment medicine is actively integrated into my practice. Highly tailored care with services are fulfilling and meaningful components of my practice. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, photography, stand up, music & wellness.

People come to me with a wide range of problems, often not clear about why they are suffering. They may feel anxious, depressed, empty or confused; they may be having difficulty with relationships or work but not understand why. I will meet with you to evaluate what the problem is and how best to approach treatment. Why choose a psychoanalytically oriented psychiatrist? I believe that in a nonjudgmental atmosphere you will be able to explore why you are stuck in old patterns or feel unhappy in your life and relationships. I will help you gain insight so that you can feel freer, more confident, and happier.

Patients come to see me when they experience emotional pain and need help figuring out how to improve their lives as part of a quest to feel better. Sometimes a problem has built up over time and reaches a saturation point. It may relate to work or school, to a love or family relationship, or to something completely unexpected--a layoff, breakup, accident, sudden illness or even a death--that uncovers a long neglected area of development.
