Dr. Ameel's Background

Research training, expertise and qualifications

Care Philosophy

Since completing my training I have been board certified in both General (Adult) Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. I have worked in outpatient, inpatient and residential treatment settings. I truly enjoy being able to establish and maintain long-term relationships with my patients. The reward is seeing movement from pain and despair to recovery and wellness. In my practice I emphasize a treatment philosophy that embodies trust, confidentiality and respect. I am committed to quality mental health care that is provided in collaboration with my patients. I recognize that mental health is part of my patient's larger overall health strategy and strive to promote a holistic wellness approach.
