Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parikh "I provide thoughtful care to people with a focus on understanding and healing the deep-rooted sources of psychiatric symptoms. I supplement my biologic conceptualization of mental illness with my deep understanding of psychoanalytic thought, which enables me to think holistically about the human experience and pathologies that may arise. I only recommend medications when medically necessary. I am very cognizant of side effects and so try to keep regimens simple when possible. I like to meet people where they are, and think together with them to tailor an individual treatment plan that fits their needs.

I have expertise in treating the entire spectrum of mental illness through an integrative approach -- with medications, psychotherapy and alternative treatments as needed. I have had extensive training in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy, substance use disorders, OCD, Anxiety, Psychosis, Bipolar and Depression. I am also licensed to prescribe Suboxone."
