Dr. Varma's Philosophy
Counseling and medication may help more then either treatment alone. Dr Varma understands people's individuality and the origins of distress. Life doesn't have to be affected by anxiety, mood swings, or difficult interpersonal conflict. Dr Varma can provide highly personalized care using a variety of methods, depending on a person's unique situation. In addition to medication and psychotherapy, nutrition, diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes can affect the outcome of treatment.
This treatment approach may include laboratory tests, medications, psychotherapy, psychological testing or psychological exercises tailored to the patient's particular situation. The patient and Dr. Varma work together as a team for optimal outcomes. She develops a treatment plan and may provide educational hand-outs so the patient can take time reading them at home. This preparation lays the foundation for the next visit to discuss what was learned and how it may have helped.
