Medication and Mindfulness

Mindfulness Psychiatrist in Florida

My Approach to Mental Health

I treat all mental health conditions such as ADHD, Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, Trauma, and Addiction. Together, we will use medication, holistic techniques and practice skills to help your mind and body work together more effectively.

You will cultivate mindful awareness of the body, thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Everyone has a unique medical history and background; some medications are not necessarily right for some people. My goal is to understand your needs and to help you heal and grow using a natural approach that may include a minimal amount of medication.

Be Your Best

My holistic approach is focused on your overall health and well-being, and determining what type of treatment will work best for you rather than just treating your symptoms.

How It Works

In weekly telehealth sessions, you will learn a combination of grounding techniques, concentration exercise, mindfulness to lower depression and anxiety, and increase well-being. Sessions include the body scan, mindfulness exercises and practicing self-compassion. We also explore the difficult experiences of depression and anxiety together and help you develop strategies for recognizing behaviors or symptoms of relapse, and how to respond more effectively.

Mindfulness is a technique you can learn to be fully present and engaged in the moment without judging anything. It can help you manage your thoughts, feelings, and mental health.

Mindfulness is a healthy mental state that brings balance, openness, and eases to the mind and body. I will teach you to work with yourself naturally, in combination with psychiatric medications when needed, in order to bring balance, health, wellness, and peak performance into your life.
