Dr. Nicole Shadid is a Board Certified Adult Psychiatrist (MD, ABPN) providing integrative and holistic mental healthcare treatment. She is one of the few psychiatrists in the United States that is Board Certified in Integrative and Holistic Medicine (ABIHM) and Certified in Functional Medicine (CFMP, ABAARM, FAAMFM-Advanced Fellow). She practices Mind-Body Medicine using integrative approaches of conventional medications and psychotherapy with complementary holistic methods to improve psychiatric symptoms of Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar and Attention/Cognition Disorders.
In addition to medication management, Dr. Shadid's integrative modalities of treatment include Psychotherapy, Nutritional Psychiatry, Botanical/Herbal Medicine, Functional Medicine, Hormone Management, Meditation and Mindfulness Techniques, Exercise or Yoga Therapy, Biofeedback Techniques, as well as Stress Management and Relaxation Techniques. She believes traditional psychopharmacology or medication management of psychiatric symptoms can be an important part of the treatment plan, but Dr. Shadid believes medications alone will neither address nor appropriately treat all causes of psychiatric symptoms.
Dr. Shadid believes evaluation and treatment of all components, including co-occurring medical conditions, hormone imbalances, diet and nutritional deficiencies, inflammation and autoimmune conditions, gut-brain dysfunction, lifestyle patterns, stress management or coping skills, psychological factors or conflicts, medication effects and drug interactions, and genetic and hereditary components are imperative to address for successful treatment of mental health symptoms. Using Integrative, Holistic, and Functional Medicine treatment approaches allows us to minimize the number of psychiatric medications needed and/or reduce the dose of medications that patients usually require for mental health or psychiatric symptoms.
Update January 2022: Dr. Shadid is not accepting new patients for the rest of this 2022 year, and she does not have a waitlist.
