mental health

One Life Psychiatry is a holistic approach mental health, through the use of medication, therapy, and alternative remedies.  In the field of child and adult psychiatry, I believe is it vital to genuinely care, educate and empower patients that are struggling with mental illness. 

 

I believe that the collaborative approach helps to increase treatment compliance, improves open communication, validates the patient's wishes.  Also, it helps to reduce barriers for treatment based on mental health stigma.  Fundamentally, each patient wants to feel connected and understood by their psychiatrists.

Child and adolescent psychiatry has changed over the years, as patients have limited time with their psychiatrists.  Each patient is quickly diagnosed without an evidence based approach and given medicines abruptly.  To me, this does not get to the root of each underlying mental health condition, but rather are band aids that often have many side effects. I believe that providing your patients with medical education is key! I do prescribe medications, but I analyze the cost and benefit often.  Psychiatric disorders need to often be addressed with therapy, as medication can only alter chemicals in your brain.  But, I believe that therapy helps alter your patterns of thinking and gives you a birds-eye perspective of your life, which can be especially helpful during family therapy.

For self pay or out of network patients, we are happy to provide you a superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for out of network reimbursement. This is when your insurance plan will reimburse you directly a portion of your out of pocket fees paid for your appointment. Our discounted self pay rate is $225 for first visit and $75 for follow up visit.  Visits including therapy would be extra.

 

You can find your specific insurance plan out of network benefit information typically in the Summary of Benefits in your information packet or your insurance company’s website. The best way to be absolutely sure of your benefits is to clarify with your insurance company member services line. You can find this phone number on the back of your insurance card.

My Philosophy

 

I believe that the field of psychiatry has made an abrupt shift,  dominated by prescription medications.  Many years ago, psychiatrists were heavily involved in therapy, which they integrated in medication management.   I think there is a psychology and psychiatric process in each condition, which is why I think therapy is very important and enjoy practicing it. 

From a young age, I have always been fascinated with the mental health.  I had various members of my family, who suffered conditions such as Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, etc.

So, I was more attuned to see how these conditions impacted their life. I became a child psychiatrist, because I think it is important to be proactive and preventive by receiveing psychiatric services early on.

 

 

 

 

 

I would often talk to my adult patients about their childhood or teen years which seemed to be catalyst of their underlying condition.  Unfortunately, some points did not get treatment at that time, which strongly influenced the course of their life and negative events that could have been avoided.  

 

Based on my experiences in psychiatry, I prefer to collaborate with my patients on what treatment is the best fit.  I provide a lot of guidance and educate them during their road to recovery as there is a lot of misinformation about mental health treatments.  I have come to realize that my patients tend to be open and honest with me about all aspects of their treatment.  I think when you are suffering you want to be heard and understood, not talked down to or invalidated.
