-Psychotherapy: During psychotherapy, a person with a mental illness talks to a licensed and trained mental health care professional who helps him or her identify and work through the factors that may be triggering your symptoms.
-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a common type of talk therapy that for some people can work as well or better than medication to treat depression. It can be effective if your depression is mild or moderate. It also can help with more severe cases if your therapist is highly skilled. In some cases, CBT can help you the most if you combine it with other treatments, like antidepressants or other drugs.
-Obesity Treatment: Many patients suffering from mental disorders struggle to keep their ideal weight, frequently due to the effect of medications used to treat psychiatric disorders. Our medical director and practice owner Dr. Alzamora will evaluate you and assess the need to start behavioral modification and medications that are FDA approved for weight reduction. Your progress will be closely monitored by measuring your body composition (muscle, total and visceral fat, body max index, body age etc), and lab work will be ordered if clinically appropriate.
Our offices use the ACCUNIQ Technology to treat obesity:
ACCUNIQ has developed extremely accurate body composition analysis using Bioelectrical Impedance and our own advanced engineering excellence. Measurements have been validated to DEXA measurement known to be the most accurate method for body composition assessment.
Body Composition Analysis is a useful indicator for identifying possible health problems. Body composition analysis enables professionals to detect obesity or imbalance in body composition at an early stage and helps subjects keep their body healthy.
-Telemedicine or Telepsychiatry: psychotherapy through telephone, skype, or video as an alternative for patients who would like to have services from the comfort of their own homes (restricted to cash patients and others who qualify based on insurance approval).
