In the bustling symphony of life, high achievers often find themselves at the intersection of ambition and emotional challenges — a balance I've dedicated my practice to understanding deeply. My emphasis at Jazz Psychiatry isn’t just about addressing symptoms — it's about harmonizing the rhythm of your mind, body, and spirit.
Specializing in the unique stressors and pressures that high achievers face, I fuse a multi-disciplinary approach that blends conventional psychiatry with holistic mind-body interventions, ensuring that your professional life doesn’t come at the expense of your mental health.
With an approach steeped in prevention, self-care, and individualized strategies, we'll together chart a journey that sets the tone for sustainable success and well-being. True healing emerges when we address not just the mental, but also the physical, emotional, spiritual, and environmental dimensions of one’s being.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a general term for treating mental health disorders through conversations with Dr. Singh. The act of talking about your condition, emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and moods allows you to better identify your challenges, learn healthy coping skills, and take control of your life.
Psychotherapy includes many types of talk therapy. Though each type follows a different technique, they all help you achieve clarity and move forward into a healthier life.
When would I need psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy supports your emotional and psychological well-being as you navigate an array of challenges. Many people seek therapy to help them through life transitions, such as losing a job, dealing with grief, or separating from a partner.
Families facing behaviors like defiance, opposition, and angry outbursts from any family member benefit from psychotherapy. Therapy helps people of all ages with issues like stress, low self-esteem, and anger.
With or without medication, psychotherapy is the foundation of treatment for mental health disorders, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- Grief and loss
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
You may also want to seek psychotherapy if you struggle to communicate with others, have a hard time socializing, or need help coping with an illness.
What type of psychotherapy might I receive?
Dr. Singh has training and experience using many types of psychotherapy. He customizes your treatment by choosing the one that best fits your mental health disorder, symptoms, challenges, skills, and goals.
Some types of psychotherapy resemble a free-flowing conversation that’s gently guided by Dr. Singh. Other types follow a specific structure, sometimes with worksheets that track your challenges, thoughts, and emotions so you can explore them at your next appointment.
A few examples of psychotherapies you may receive include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapies
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Compassionate inquiry
- Psychoanalytic psychotherapy
- Interpersonal therapy
- Solution-focused therapy
- Trauma-focused therapy
Dr. Singh also specializes in therapies designed to connect with and help children.
As a psychiatrist who takes a holistic approach, Dr. Singh often combines psychotherapy with complementary and biological treatments, creating a naturalistic way of achieving your full potential.
