The Framework for My Practice
Integrative Psychiatry combines the scientific findings and the shared clinical wisdom of the last century.
My practice includes lessons from five years of general psychiatric training and child psychiatric training. Most of those five years of supervised training focused on psychotherapy. Through reading I remain current with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Positive Psychology as in https://ppc.sas.upenn.edu/
I developed my skill in psychopharmacology by attending dozens of courses sponsored by Massachusetts General Hospital as well as the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry.
A reading of the recently published, The Secrete Language of Cells, suggests that for me to be a well-informed psychiatrist, I must possess an understanding of immunology and gastroenterology. I strive to do so. To support your healthy brain, I encourage you to maintain a lifestyle that supports your healthy body.
In my practice of Integrative Psychiatry and with an integration of the lessons of neuropsychiatry, immunology, and gastroenterology, I support the recovery of my patients and encourage lifelong patterns of behavior consistent with long term good health and wellbeing.
In my collaboration with Johanna Centeno, I bring the insights of Integrative Psychiatry to the public in English and Spanish. Ms. Centeno and I endeavor to fulfill our Mission Statement.
