psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation, and integrates these modalities
in his treatment programs.

psychopharmacology may play in improving mental health, he believes “lifestyle”
modifications are of central importance as well. Therefore, he is dedicated to
encouraging individuals to examine the role, physical activity, diet, interpersonal
relationships, and social connections play in improving their quality of life and
