At The Happiness Psychiatrist®, we believe that happiness is a state of mind that takes practice, effort, and vigilance and that it is within everyone's reach if we are willing to put in the time and effort for authentic self-reflection and personal growth. To this end, Dr. Ambardar's unique integrative and holistic treatment method blends Eastern and Western philosophies for the optimal benefit of her patients. She uses psychiatric medications in conjunction with an eclectic blend of psychotherapeutic modalities including psychodynamic or insight-oriented therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, interpersonal therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, journal therapy, walking therapy, meditation, and Kundalini Yoga.
