The Psychiatry Services of Akasha are unique, partnering with each client on their individual path to wellness. The whole experience of each person is recognized as vital to creating the most powerful opportunity for healing. A thorough evaluation by a board certified psychiatrist starts the process. Alicia Maher, MD brings her own approach to psychiatry, evaluating the mental, physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of what is occurring in someone’s life. Backed by science, she meets one where they are and builds upon the foundation of knowledge and prior experiences one has had. For those with medical illness, her additional specialization in Mind-Body medicine and integration with other practitioners aids in enhancing healing and coping with physical conditions.
Dr. Maher uses a wide variety of treatments including psychotherapy, medications, natural treatments, and eastern practices such as meditation and breathing exercises, to help you to achieve your ideal state of wellness.
