Our innovative mental wellness practice was established by M Rameen Ghorieshi, MD, MPH, upon the belief that mental and physical health are strongly intertwined, and you can achieve your best level of health when you strive to heal both. Dr. Ghorieshi combines the latest scientific medical, drug, and functional health discoveries with different proven psychotherapy approaches, allowing you to achieve a balanced state of mind and body health.

Dr. Ghorieshi holds dual board certifications in psychiatry. He and his team of highly trained and experienced providers have devoted their lives to helping individuals heal and get relief from a wide range of—and often debilitating—challenges, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, chronic pain, and other mental and social health issues and disorders.

Dr. Ghorieshi and his team are compassionately dedicated to using evidence-based treatments to help individuals regain control of their lives.  Evidence-based treatments are therapies and medications that have been shown in scientific clinical studies to make a positive difference for individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, pain, and a range of other mental and social health challenges.

How Ketamine Differs from Antidepressants

Millions of Americans — more than 16 million, to be exact — suffer from major depressive episodes each year, about a third of whom do not respond to antidepressants. There’s new hope for these cases in the form of ketamine.

Choosing a Ketamine Provider to Treat Your Depression

If you or someone you love has treatment-resistant depression, you may be considering IV ketamine treatments. If so, be sure to choose a provider with the psychiatric expertise needed to deliver safe, effective IV ketamine treatment.
