Dr. Anand’s patient philosophy centers around treating the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. She believes in a comprehensive evaluation, accurate diagnosis, psychotherapy (talk therapy) coupled with judicious use of psychopharmacology (using psychiatric medications to treat mental disorders). This along with other alternative treatments (such as meditation, yoga, journal, and walking therapy), can bring about transformative changes in the lives of those suffering from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other common mental conditions and life issues.
