Psychiatrist Q & A

What are the benefits of psychiatric care?

 Numerous issues are categorized as psychiatric conditions. Some examples include:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Dissociative disorders
  • Bipolar affective disorder
  • Adjustment disorder

Depression is one of the most common psychiatric conditions. It can affect people of all ages and from all walks of life, creating difficulties at school, home, and the workplace. 

What are some tools and techniques used in psychiatric care?

There are several ways to approach psychiatric care and support. No two people share the same experience of psychiatric issues, and no two treatment paths are exactly alike. 

At Palo Alto Mind Body, patients receive highly customized care shaped to meet their unique needs and goals. Talk therapy, also called psychotherapy, is a great place to begin. Many different forms of talk therapy focus on getting to know your specific strengths and challenges and helping you find ways to achieve better mental and emotional stability. 

Medication might also play a role in treating psychiatric conditions. Ketamine is a particularly promising treatment, especially for depression in people who have tried other options without success. 

Drug therapy is never a stand-alone treatment. You work with your practitioner to create a treatment path that aligns with your needs. 





How long will I need psychiatric care?

Your treatment planning is unique and shaped around the issues you’re experiencing. The initial treatment stage focuses on gathering information on your health history and discussing which efforts you’ve made in the past to manage psychological conditions. 

Next, your practitioner works closely with you to create a path toward enhanced function and quality of life. Your feedback is an essential part of the process, so feel free to track and share any changes you notice as you move through treatment. 

There is no specific timeline for psychiatric care. Some people need more frequent and intensive treatment at the beginning of their journey, then come in occasionally for follow-up visits. Others make psychiatric care a part of their long-term health and wellness planning.
