Atlanta Integrative Psychiatry

The best way to find out if this approach is for you is to schedule a 15 - 20 minute consultation. Depending on your clinician’s availability, this consult may be held over the phone, via video, or in-person.

What is Integrative Psychiatry?

Integrative Psychiatry is an approach that blends conventional psychiatry with other complementary therapies. This method focuses on understanding and treating mental health issues by considering a patient’s overall well-being. Rather than just focusing on symptoms, we look at the whole person.

It differs from traditional psychiatry by integrating various treatment modalities, such as dietary changes, exercise, and mind-body techniques, along with standard psychiatric treatments. Effective mental health care requires attention to the biological, psychological, and social aspects of a person’s life.

Addressing the Interconnected Mind and Body

In our practice, we emphasize the significant relationship between mental and physical health. Recognizing that the mind and body are deeply interconnected, we employ various techniques that target both psychological and physical aspects of well-being.

These mind-body practices of integrative medicine are particularly effective in managing conditions that span both emotional and physiological realms. This includes hormone imbalances, which can significantly impact mental states like depression and anxiety.

By integrating these techniques into our treatment plans, we aim to provide a more rounded and effective approach to mental health challenges. This perspective ensures that we address all factors contributing to a patient’s mental health, thus leading to more sustainable and impactful results.

Your Initial Comprehensive Evaluation

The initial comprehensive evaluation at our practice is a critical step in developing a personalized treatment plan. This one-hour session is an opportunity for us to gain a deep understanding of your unique mental health needs. We review your health and treatment history, which helps us to identify the most effective approaches for your care.

This in-depth assessment is particularly crucial for accurately diagnosing and planning treatment for conditions such as depressive disorders. Our goal is to ensure that every aspect of your mental health is considered. This allows us to provide a treatment plan that is as unique as you are.

This comprehensive approach is fundamental to our practice. It allows us to create a more targeted and effective treatment plan. One that addresses not just symptoms but the root causes of your mental health challenges.

Advanced Diagnostic Options

At HWP, we provide a range of advanced diagnostic options to support our integrative approach to psychiatry. Our testing includes comprehensive blood tests. These tests can be billed to insurance, with any additional fees paid to the third-party health center conducting the tests.

These evaluations are crucial in understanding your overall health and identifying any underlying issues. We also offer neuroendocrine testing and genetic testing, both subject to additional fees.

These tests provide insights that help us recommend personalized supplements and medications. This ensures that your treatment plan is as effective and tailored to your needs as possible. Our commitment to using a variety of diagnostic tools underscores our integrative approach to your overall physical and mental health.

HWP’s Commitment to Evidence-Based Psychiatry

At HWP, we are deeply committed to evidence-based psychiatry. We ensure that our treatments are grounded in the latest scientific research. This includes integrating methods like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), among others, into our practice. These services are in addition to psychiatry and are provided by our compassionate licensed counselors.

These proven techniques are vital in treating a range of conditions. These conditions include anxiety, depression, and more, and are a key part of our residency training. Our approach combines these methods with personalized care, providing effective and reliable psychiatric services.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule an appointment?

If you are a new client, you may schedule your consultation or your initial appointment by visiting the contact page and filling out the short form or outreaching directly to your desired provider by calling (470) 231-5355.

All outreaches are returned within 24 hours, during business hours.

Do you accept my insurance?

HWP does not accept insurance. Managed care companies were created to “manage” and contain escalating health care costs. Their bottom line is to reduce costs and raise profits; it is not to increase the quality of care professionals provide or your quality of life. HWP is solution-focused on quality of life and personal goals.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel or change your appointment, we ask you to inform your provider at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled session start time. Your full session fee will be charged for missed appointments and cancellations received less than 24 hours in advance.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, credit cards, and health savings (HSA) or flex spending account (FSA) cards that have a major credit card logo on it are all accepted forms of payment.
