My approach to psychiatry is based on the principle that the human spirit is resilient and has the ability to heal when supported. With that in mind, I use an integrative approach to help my patients achieve greater mental health and well-being. I work with individuals who have depression, anxiety, unresolved traumas, concentration difficulties, unfulfilling relationships, and career and academic difficulties transform their challenges into personal growth and self-realization. I seek to help people live healthy and meaningful lives.

I believe listening - and being truly heard - is one of the most powerful therapeutic experiences. We are social beings, and if we have become isolated, or feel misunderstood, even ignored, we suffer deeply. I bring a high level of attentiveness to my work as a psychiatrist that provides the crucial foundation on which true growth and change can occur. I want to hear your story, to understand how your suffering, whatever its form, has come to be in the present day.

Please note: Telepsychiatry is available during COVID-19 pandemic. Through my training at Sheppard Pratt, I practice an integrated approach with consideration for the mind/body connection. While medications can play an important role in treatment of psychiatric illnesses, I endeavor to consider the whole person, paying careful attention to the individual and their internal world. Depressive and anxiety disorders are particularly suited to this holistic approach.

I have an adult practice for persons over the age of 18. If you are seeking therapy, you are interested in improving your life in the areas of relationships, communications and any other areas causing emotional discomfort or pain such as: work, marital or couple issues, parenting differences, losses, life phase adaptations, body image and decision making. Effectiveness of therapy depends on your active participation. It requires time, effort and regularity. Therapy involves evaluating your thoughts and behaviors, identifying stresses and working to modify both. The therapy relationship is a collaborative effort with strict confidentiality and respect for the client.

Life is far from perfect. Everyone experiences loss, unforeseen change, and anxiety provoking stress. When these stresses become so powerful that they interfere with our work, self-care, or relationships, it is important to remember that we are not alone and help is available. With bravery, you can seek help and begin to heal. My goal is to help those who are facing these difficulties. I received my psychiatric training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Adult Psychiatry. With this experience, I am able to diagnose and treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

My name is Eric Kowshoh Yenchi, I was born in Cameroon central Africa, I grew up in a small village in the North West region of Cameroon known as Babungo. Growing up in Cameroon, life was very tough, especially when it came to health care .There was just 1 health center in my village which was staffed with 1 nurse and a medical doctor who visited once every two months. This meant people who were very sick and could not wait till the arrival of the medical doctor had to drive for about 5 hours to the closest hospital in the town of Kumbo to get health care. Due to the conditions, many people died on the journey.

Do you feel disconnected from close relationships, despite being surrounded by technology and social media 24/7? Are anxiety, trauma and low mood robbing you of the joy and spontaneity of life? Together, my clients and I walk through the biological, mental and emotional aspects of these conditions and gain an understanding of their origins as well as hidden strengths each of us has at our core. There is much to be discovered in all of us. With sensitive and timely use of medication and psychotherapy, these struggles and strengths begin to reveal themselves in fulfilling ways that restore meaning and function to our lives.
