Jennifer Hersch, DO
WELLNESS PSYCHIATRY
Welcome
I am a board certified adult psychiatrist specializing in providing psychiatric consultations to adult patients ages 18 and over. Our office practice specializes in Wellness Psychiatry, which refers to an incorporation of a variety of tools including medication and therapy to return the mind and body to a state of wellness. I believe that medication is often a necessary tool in treating mental illness,  but I also believe that there are many other tools available to guide the mind and body back to a state of wellness, and that it usually cannot be accomplished by taking medication alone.  I offer medication consultation along with brief psychotherapy and other tools to help manage your overall mental and physical health.  I do not at this time offer individual psychotherapy alone due to the high demand for medication consultation.  I am generally a proponent of regular exercise, meditation, stress reduction exercises, prioritizing self-care, abstinence from tobacco and illicit drugs, and healthy eating as the mainstay of mental health and wellness.
