Dhwani Shah, MD
I am a board certified psychiatrist who specializes in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and psychopharmacology.
My services include a detailed assessment and diagnostic formulation involving attention to the interpersonal, intrapsychic and neurobiological aspects of psychological symptoms, including:
My role as a psychiatrist is to engage in a collaborative fashion with individuals and couples to create a safe space where change and growth is possible.
My goal is to create a safe, containing space where any issue can be discussed and explored. I believe that every individual has a unique narrative and perspective that needs to be fully understood before psychiatric treatment can proceed. Instead of applying a “one size fits all” approach, I aim to alleviate suffering by utilizing a variety of approaches that fit the individual including psychotherapy and psychopharmacology.
I do not consult for or work with any pharmaceutical companies to avoid potential bias in my clinical work, and attempt whenever possible to use evidenced based practices in the psychiatric literature along with an effort to understand through the psychotherapeutic relationship.
