Helping You Be The Healthiest You
Many people suffer from treatment-resistant conditions – symptoms and side effects that often do not go away with traditional psychiatric care. At Luvita, we take a whole-person approach to mental and physical health, treating them as connected but distinct systems that impact each other. This science-based approach is known as Integrative Psychiatry.
With Integrative Psychiatry, Sarah Stockham Johnson, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC, offers a holistic patient-centered model that combines evidence-based pharmaceutical and conventional medicine with other non-pharmacological modalities like supplements, diet, and lifestyle coaching to promote long-term health.
Integrative Psychiatry isn’t just about investigating and treating symptoms, it’s about rebalancing mental, emotional, social, spiritual, functional, and community functioning. It’s about empowering patients to improve their well-being, develop self-awareness, and commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development.
Achieving harmony between the body and the brain is essential to whole-body wellness, and at Luvita we strive to identify and treat the underlying causes, not just the symptoms. With this approach we get to the root of issues and can promote deeper, more lasting healing.
