“Biopsychosocial” has been an important treatment concept in the field of psychology and medicine for decades. The idea is to consider mind, body and social/environmental context when treating mental health issues. In the last 15 years, important developments in the fields of psychology and medicine, such as the influence of modern neuroscience, have provided a better understanding of the importance of integrating approaches to mental and physical health. For example, many mental health problems have a physiological basis or component, and many physical health issues have a psychological aspect. Stress is a good example. It consumes our minds, and increases inflammation in the body. Beyond the basics, emerging modalities such as genomics, epigenetics, and the relevance of the gut-brain connection, have led elite private practitioners to attempt to piece together treatment plans that involve multiple providers but often in a way that ends up lacking coordination, a key element in effective therapy. Our center brings these disciplines under one roof, offered by experts in each domain, to better coordinate this integration and provide you with the most effective treatment plan.
We call the confluence and integration of these disparate but supporting modalities ‘Next-Level Biopsychosocial’ when we’re speaking with professional therapists, and ‘Comprehensive Wellness’ when speaking with the public. They refer to the same thing: A multidisciplinary, integrative approach to mind, body, spirit and relationships that fully supports your health and wellbeing. Our approach makes use of the latest methods in each area, blending them intelligently to offer you the fastest and most effective treatment of mental, physical, emotional and relationship issues.
