Find out more about my journey...

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.

Interested to Learn about What Conditions We Treat?

What if you aren't in-network with my insurance or I don't have insurance?

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.

 

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.
