Dr. Kapitanski was drawn to the field of medicine at a young age. She continued to explore this curiosity, and was captivated by the intricacies of the human mind and its resilience. During medical school training, Dr. Kapitanski examined the link between depression and quality of life, publishing in the Harvard Review of Psychiatry. Beyond excellent training that allows Dr. Kapitanski to treat a diverse group of adult patients, with a wide range of ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds, and sexual orientations, she pursued specialized training at Stanford Hospital in the fields of women's mental health and psychotherapy for couples/families.

Her training in Palo Alto has provided the the unique experience of working with professionals in the fields of Academia, and IT Industry. Dr. Kapitanski utilizes an individualized approach. This allows her to treat each person, not just within a medical model of a patient, but embrace the entity of their care as a person.

Her empathic style draws from a variety of tools to provide the highest level of personalized care. This integrative approach may utilize elements from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and mindfulness therapies, as well as medication management when medically appropriate. The goal for individuals is to achieve their personal best level of functioning.
