A Holistic Approach to Mental Health
Welcome to Taconic Psychiatry
At Taconic Psychiatry, our most significant source of motivation in doing the work of mental health and wellness is related to the tremendous satisfaction plus the joy we’ve received over the past 15 years from being a part of people’s journeys.
Witnessing our patients come in with their own specific flavor of struggle. Then, by making connections, they translate those connections into genuine, meaningful changes. Our mission, in one sentence, is to offer people the opportunity to clear their own path forward and realize greater satisfaction, purpose, and wellness in their lives. We welcome you to see for yourself precisely what Taconic Psychiatry can do for you and your psychotherapy needs.
A Holistic Approach
Integrative psychiatry is a holistic approach that uses both conventional and complementary therapies in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Personalized treatments are developed to suit each person’s lifestyle and strengthen self-awareness and resources for self-care.
Treatments using integrative psychiatry can include but are not limited to:
• Herbs & supplements
• Behavioral modifications
Because this isn’t about just prescribing medications, this is about finding you peace and wellness emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Taconic Psychiatry focuses on the mind-body’s ability to heal itself. This starts at the evaluation where they assess the mind, body, and spirit. All the while taking into account all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle in understanding their overall health. This includes diet, exercise, work, and relationships.
Safe & Effective Treatments
Taconic Psychiatry incorporates safe, effective treatments that most psychiatrists have not been trained in, especially in Vermont and throughout New England. Treatments that have been proven to support the mind-body’s ability to naturally heal itself.
• Nutritional medicine
• Mind-body approaches
• Herbs & supplements often in lieu of pharmaceutical medication or as a means to reduce dosages
• Self-actualization (Defined as the individualized and unique drive for meaning, value, purpose, and connection to something beyond ourselves)
• And clearly psychopharmacology as appropriate.
