THE CEDAR MODEL


The Cedar Integrative Model

We use a Bio-psycho-social-spiritual model to look at your brain in the context of all areas of life, integrating genetic, biological, environmental, psychological, cultural & spiritual influences.

  1. Validated rating scales for diagnosis & real-time tracking of progress

  2. Psychological & neuropsychological testing when needed

  3. Lab tests for thorough diagnostic evaluation & therapeutic drug monitoring

  4. Cognitive testing for certain conditions like ADHD, memory loss, and impairment related to any condition (such as depression, eating disorders)

  5. Targeted and individualized treatment planning


Individualized Psychiatry

Since no two people are alike, our care plans are not a one-size-fits all approach. We provide you with a personalized and targeted plan geared towards your unique journey, struggles, and strengths. Your treatment plan may include a combination of different modalities such as:

  • Psychotherapy (including EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, ACT, Mindfulness-based stress reduction, Couples Therapy, & more)

  • Prudent & evidence based psychiatric medication management

  • Pharmacogenetics for medication & supplement selection/dosing

  • Hormone evaluation & replacement

  • Dietary therapy or other nutritional interventions

  • TMS (especially for depression & OCD) as a non-invasive, highly focused magnetic pulse therapy to simulate activity in certain brain areas, without the troubling side effects of many medications

  • Other brain stimulation approaches, including tDCS & cranial electrotherapy

  • Ketamine therapy

  • Spravato (esketamine) nasal spray
