As a naturopathic physician with over 30 years of experience Dr. Garcia limits his practice to mental health care, treatment of substance use disorders, and supporting the healing process from past trauma. He finds taking time to listen and understand who his patients are, helps strengthen the therapeutic relationship, improves the process for selecting psychotropic medications, builds trust, and supports the development of optimal and sustainable treatment plans.
Dr. Garcia prescribes psychotropic (psychiatric) medications when indicated for your mental health and will work with you to help you understand their purpose or intent. He’s ready to discuss and recommend a variety of options in addition to or instead of prescribed mental health medications. Dr. Garcia can also deprescribe medications when it’s safe to do so.
Optimal mental and emotional health is a journey. I will inform and support your needs or preferences to help you on your path.
