ABOUT CALPSYCHIATRY

Your Partner In Health

Certified adult psychiatrists with a focus on collaborative, empathetic healthcare

At CalPsychiatry, we believe the role of a psychiatrist goes far beyond medication management. From the moment a patient walks through our doors, we see it as our responsibility to work as part of a team – our patient, their therapist, and us – to deliver the best possible care.

We understand that working with a psychiatrist can often feel intimidating at first. That’s why whether it is our first meeting or a scheduled check-up, we are committed to ensuring our patients feel comfortable and empowered by their experience with us.

We work with adults – individuals, couples and families – with a wide range of disorders and
mental health struggles to come up with solutions that forge a path out of life’s challenges, so
you can get back to your true self.

We are also pleased to offer child and adolescent services for ADHD and anxiety. Our physicians are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD and anxiety disorders in this age range and can help you, your loved one, and your family start to thrive again.

At CalPsychiatry, our approach to mental health is diverse and no two treatment plans are alike. We offer a holistic and multimodal approach that can include medication, nutrition / exercise, mindfulness, and yoga. We are dedicated to working with you to find the treatment plan that is best for you.
