Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

I won’t give you medications if you don’t need them; I will understand your life story and your troubles psychologically and emotionally and help you with psychotherapy, customized meditation, and EMDR exercises. However, imagine if you’re going to psychotherapy and taking a little bit of medication might speed up your treatment. Imagine if you’re doing all the psychotherapeutic and emotional work, and taking a minimal dose of medication could put your depression or anxiety recovery on the fast track to healing. I’ll be the first person to tell you if you don’t need the medication, but I’ll also be the first person to tell you if medication will truly help you. Then I’ll taper the medication down when you have the psychological and emotional strength. The medication helps you get there. This is a very customized treatment.

People who are doing psychological and emotional work need a little bit of a push to break through that last barrier. This is a very customized process because everyone’s psychological and emotional troubles are different and originate from a different place. The treatment you receive from me is very customized and precise to your life experience.

If you’ve been doing the psychological and emotional work already and you feel like you need an extra push, Medication management can be used as a tool to break through that last hurdle and improve your psychological and emotional well-being. When you have an experienced psychopharmacologist by your side, like Dr. Datta, he can help guide you regarding when and for how long certain medications can be helpful to treat your condition.

This is a very customized duration of time depending on your condition and the angle of how we are treating it. The main thing to understand is that I will always help you strengthen your psychological and emotional state, first and foremost. We can use medication and psychopharmacology to help you treat your depression, anxiety, and mood issues faster and more efficiently.

Yes, there can be potential side effects from medications. Rest assured, I will educate you on the side effects of the medications. And I will monitor you so that you don’t have any side effects or have very limited side effects. Symptomological questions are asked along with blood tests for specific medications that require them. Rest assured, I don’t let any of my patients experience side effects for long. I always err on the side of less medication for the least amount of medication necessary to treat a psychological issue.

Absolutely, that is our goal. My goal is to heal you psychologically and emotionally. Our goal is for you to be a stronger version of yourself, both psychologically and emotionally. I’m not going to keep you on medication if you don’t need it.

Mistakes and medication management occur when there’s a long gap in the patient’s follow-up. Or it’s reflexive treatment from the doctor. Reflexive treatment means the doctor might not be thinking so much about why the patient is on this medication. Rest assured, in my practice, each and every patient receives customized care. The patient’s psychological and emotional journey is well understood before any medication is given. And the psychological and emotional maturation of the patient is well monitored and medication is tapered up and down accordingly. There is no reflexive or thoughtless prescribing here. I always inquire if the patient needs this medication, for what psychological or emotional reason, and what progress we are making.

Rest assured, I’m not going to give you medication if you don’t need it. Imagine doing a lot of psychological and emotional work to remedy your depression and anxiety. If you want to proceed without medication and would rather do psychotherapy alone, be my guest, and I will support you in that process. However, if you are open to taking medication, I’ll never let you be on more medications than you really need. I’ll take the medications off when you’re psychologically and emotionally strong enough. The medications can be used as a tool to help you in your journey as you are healing psychologically and emotionally.

Meditation involves closing the eyes, deep breathing or rhythmic breathing. It is used in exercise, martial arts and yoga, so it certainly improves physical health. Meditation takes our attention inside and helps us organize our emotions, which can go up and down sometimes. If we always allow the stimulus from the outside world to affect us, we need to bring attention inside—we need to quieten our mind. This helps us conglomerate all of the advice, feedback, experiences, and stimulus we have experienced. This helps our emotional well-being. A combination of psychotherapy and meditation is very helpful for mental health.

Meditation is very helpful for people with mental health concerns. Sometimes we are inundated by the stimulus of the outside world.

You should meditate for at least 5–7 minutes a day, sometimes even twice a day. If you meditate for a short amount of time, you will still be attached to the stimulus of your day-to-day tasks and the stimulus of the outside world. Give yourself a chance to sink into the quietness of our mind. We need to hold the meditation technique for at least a few minutes more to be able to get into this state of quietness. This is very helpful for a sense of well-being.

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. We are faking out the brain to make it think we are experiencing REM sleep. During REM sleep, we dream. Dreams are essentially memories, images, and bits and pieces of the unconscious mind coming to the conscious mind. We see abstract images and overlays of images with memories in our dreams. EMDR is the yellow brick road to the unconscious mind. With EMDR, we may be able to let go of some of the traumas that remain in our unconscious minds. Sometimes we carry past traumas with us, and this negatively affects our present-day lives. With skilled EMDR treatment, one may be able to let go of or surrender some of these traumas that they are holding on to.

Emdr, or eye movement desensitization reprocessing, is most commonly used to treat past trauma. However, it can be used to change any type of behavior. EMDR can be used to surrender or let go of maladaptive behaviors, addictive behaviors or even bad habits.
