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 and addiction medicine. 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 addiction, 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 addiction, anxiety, depression, PTSD, pain, and a range of other mental and social health challenges.
