Learn about Dr. Newsom
Dr. Newsom believes in always teaching active skills as preferable to simply prescribing pills. If medication is prescribed, it is the lowest possible dose for the least period of time. Different forms of psychotherapy, especially the careful and precise teaching of mindfullness, are always going to help the patient more in the long run than simply prescribing, the most passive form of mental health care. Dr. Newsom always incorporates integrative holistic medicine, diet, and intensive exercise.
