Dr. Nicole Shadid is a board certified adult psychiatrist providing integrative and holistic mental healthcare treatment. She practices Mind-Body Medicine using integrative combinations of conventional medications and psychotherapy with alternative and complementary approaches to improve psychiatric symptoms of mood, anxiety and attentional disorders. Integrative and Holisitic modalities of treatment emphasis the mind-body-soul connection in mental health symptoms, and include interventions such as Nutritional and Vitamin/Herbal Supplementation, Meditation and Mindfulness Techniques, Exercise/Body Awareness and Stress Management/Relaxation Techniques.
Dr. Shadid believes traditional psychopharmacology or medication management of psychiatric symptoms can be an important part of the treatment plan, but believes medications alone will neither address nor treat all causes of psychiatric symptoms. She believes evaluation and treatment of all components, including medical conditions, hormonal imbalances, diet/nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle patterns, stress management/coping skills, psychological factors/conflicts, medication effects and drug interactions, and genetic and hereditary components are imperative to address for successful treatment of psychiatric symptoms. Using integrative and holisitic treatment approaches allows us to minimize the number of psychiatric medications needed and/or reduce the dose of medications that patients usually require for mood, anxiety and attentional disorders.
