INTEGRATIVE & HOLISTIC PSYCHIATRY

Dr. Qazi Javed is at once both very grounded in science and an observer of the world through the philosophical lens of a mystic.

His practice integrates various philosophies, treatment modalities, and systems of diagnosis into an individualized treatment plan for each patient. Leaning heavily on both conventional allopathic treatment models and traditional, mind-body, and herbal medicine, he helps each patient find a balance that works best for their individual goals.

“Every dilemma has multiple contributing elements, and the process of attempting to understand these elements leads us towards healing.”

Dr. Javed believes in tailoring evidence based practices to the need of individuals and that blind application of science can be as harmful as over reliance on other traditions. Well versed in the treatments offered by conventional psychiatry, he is also open to treatment utilizing other modalities and styles.

When designing a treatment plan, he incorporates his patients’ belief systems, scientific evidence, and the wisdom of various cultures and healing traditions. Using all of the tools at his disposal, Dr. Javed empowers individuals to be aware of the power they possess to make choices about their health and what they want out of life.

He realizes that it is often a marathon and not a short sprint. Seeing individuals through this process as a guide is his role.
