PSYCHIATRIA – Brainspotting 101 with Dr. Melanie Young, PsyD


I’ve tried a lot of different types of therapies and holistic modalities over the years, but few have been as surprising as brainspotting.

Psychiatry is the Cause, Not the Solution


I am thrilled to announce that my article was published by Mad in America, a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve as a catalyst for rethinking psychiatric care in the United States (and abroad).

What Do Tampons Have to Do With My Mood?


It may seem odd to you that a psychiatrist is talking to you about your tampons and pads. However, it's actually a very important topic, that most psychiatrists (and other doctors) rarely discuss. Unfortunately, most feminine care products are loaded with tons of toxic chemicals. Tampons can be the most dangerous because vaginas are actually [...]

In general, the idea is that these are all different words to describe an alternative to "conventional" medicine, which focuses almost exclusively on medication based treatments.
