At BrainWell Psychiatry we use a variety of treatments including mindfulness, nutrition, and behavioral activation. I believe that one approach does NOT fit all and that you have your own special story, family history, genetics, lifestyle and goals. I take all of these factors into consideration and create a personalized treatment plan that takes all of these factors into consideration.
