Medication Management

Dr. Baghel practices an integrative approach. He prefers to use holistic methods to give patients support. However, he is not averse to finding the optimal combination of medications to help patients feel their best, with the least amount of side-effects. Dr. Baghel believes educating each patient on their condition helps patients understand themselves better. Medication management sessions are typically 30-minutes long and initially once weekly. The frequency decreases as the comfort with medications increases.

Psychotherapy

He employs psychodynamic psychotherapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy. He tries to personalize the treatment he offers patients, based on treatment goals. Therapy benefits include gaining insight into your past or present, to try to affect your future positively.
