A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist. Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain. Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

More about Dr. Sonia S Parikh

I provide thoughtful care to people with a focus on understanding and healing the deep-rooted sources of psychiatric symptoms. I supplement my biologic conceptualization of mental illness with my deep understanding of psychoanalytic thought, which enables me to think holistically about the human experience and pathologies that may arise. I only recommend medications when medically necessary. I am very cognizant of side effects and and so try to keep regimens simple when possible. I like to meet people where they are, and think together with them to tailor an individual treatment plan that fits their needs. I have expertise in treating the entire spectrum of mental illness through an integrative approach -- with medications, psychotherapy and alternative treatments as needed. I have had extensive training in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy, substance use disorders, OCD, Adult ADHD, PTSD, Anxiety, Psychosis, Bipolar and Depression. I am also licensed to prescribe Suboxone. I am the co-founder of Savant Care, a group psychiatric practice in Los Altos. At Savant Care, we believe in integrated interventions to improve your mental health. We always consider modalities other than medications to help improve your quality of life such as psychotherapy, group therapy, yoga, bio-feedback, CBT etc.
