Thank you, Dr. Belsare
Dr. Belsare has been the best psychiatrist I have ever had. You can see the passion and care she has for her clients. I have never met a more thorough, empathetic, and overall genuine person. She has changed my mental health in a way that has impacted my life forever. I was in horrible conditions when coming to her, and she has gave me tactics to calm my panic attacks and depression. I have come out the other side a new person. Although I still deal with my trauma and anxiety, I am finally in control of it. Instead of just prescribing me medication like every other psychiatrist I've seen, she listens and empathized with my situation without showing judgement. She has given me books and techniques that are more valuable than any medication. She listened before prescribing me the correct medication unlike many other psychiatrists that I've seen that are aloof and cold and prescribe meds without hearing my symptoms first. Thank you, Dr. Belsare.

Please beware!
I cannot stress enough how much damage a bad mental health "professional" can do. I'm genuinely concerned that this woman is licensed to practice. Dr. Belsare employs some methods that are unsubstantiated pseudoscience at best, and others that have been denounced by professionals and researchers as outright harmful at worst. She constantly pushed treatments and solutions to problems that I had already explained were inaccessible to me, and that ultimately would have caused greater damage by putting me in an even more unsafe situation. She also kept pushing to prescribe antidepressants when I had repeatedly told her I'd had multiple trials before that either didn't work or made me feel worse. Even my current therapist was concerned by some of the things she had said. She never even addressed what I expressly came to her for in the first place, having adhd and autism, and her only solutions and treatments were things that often cause more harm to neurodivergent individuals.

I have seen many mental health doctors in our area and Dr. Belsare truly cares about you as a person and works with you as a team to diagnose and find a treatment that helps you feel better. Has helped me more than the other docs I've seen Over past 10 years with regards to PTSD, schizophrenia and addiction.

It's either her way or the highway. She is not willing to go the extra mile for her patients and does not listen to them. I've never been to a worse psychiatrist who would rather let her patients suffer than prescribe them what they need. What a total and complete waste of time it was visiting her. If you want a doctor that literally abandons their patients this is the psychiatrist for you. She has very little experience so perhaps that's why she does not understand how to deal with patients.
