Our Practice Philosophy
Psychiatric Holistic Health is located in Westford,MA and was founded by Cristina Desa, MSN, PMH-CNP, B.C. She treats adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety,poor focus,mood related issues, compulsive eating, trauma, problems with sleep,fatigue and related mental health problems. Understanding that safe and effective treatment can only be achieved by assessing and treating the whole person and not merely a symptom,Cristina Desa designed Psychiatric Holistic Health to meet the individualized and varied needs of those individuals and families served. This is achieved through comprehensive evaluations which includes medication management, diagnostic evaluations, assessment for an underactive thyroid disorder, low Vitamin D levels or low folate levels and nutrition evaluation. We have found that individuals are most likely to remain engaged in treatment if he/she is an active part of planning; therefore we embrace a collaborative approach to treatment planning with all of our clients and families. At Psychiatric Holistic Health, we believe that most effective approach to treatment is through the integration natural treatments, nutrition counseling, stress remediation through mindfulness and meditation, individual therapy through evidenced-based strategies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and pharmacotherapy/medication.
We, at Psychiatric Holistic Health are committed to assisting you and your family down the path of resiliency!
