While we operate within the realm of psychiatry, our approach to healing steps beyond the traditional. We are a small-scale, holistic psychiatry clinic, prioritizing a deeply human-centered approach.
Our approach is rooted in the principles of integrative and functional medicine - and just good care. When it comes to your mental health, we address the upstream causes of your symptoms.
Harmonizing ancient wisdom with innovative therapies such as psychedelic medicine, we collaboratively guide you on a journey towards empowerment, balance, and wholeness. People get better here.
At Driftless Integrative Psychiatry, we offer a range of approaches.
We recognize, test for, and treat upstream causes of mental health symptoms including like genetic vulnerabilities, mold toxicity, tickborne diseases, mast cell activation, inflammation, sympathetic nervous system overdrive, methylation imbalances, mitochondrial dysfunction, and gut issues.
We thoughtfully prescribe and recommend psychiatric medications and supplements that can help lessen your symptoms.
We help people successfully taper off of psychiatric medications too.
We provide a truly comprehensive and personalized care plan for our patients.
A blend of science-driven psychiatric care with holistic modalities ensures that your treatment is comprehensive. This includes exploring nutritional support, exercise, mindfulness, psychedelic therapy, alongside conventional psychiatric treatments.
Understanding that mental health is influenced by a myriad of factors including genetic, environmental, and lifestyle, we tailor a healing plan that respects your uniqueness and circumstances. We are wary of one-size-fits-all protocols.
The small-scale nature of this practice ensures that you won't get lost in the system. Your journey is supported and adapted according to your evolving needs and preferences.

Menstrual cycle related mental health symptoms

On the outside, patients here often feel that it looks like they are succeeding. It feels like a big lie.
Despite being smart, driven, and caring, life is not easy. They might have achieved big accomplishments. There is often a feeling that "I shouldn't feel like this".
It gets exhausting trying to balance all the parts of your life. It's also exhausting to ignore your emotional needs until they become too overwhelming - and you're faced with no choice but to tend to them.
You deserve to feel better.
