A Holistic Approach to Mind and Body Health

Harnessing The Power of Mindful Transformation

Mind; Alchemy: A Holistic Approach to Mind and Body Health

Introducing Dr. Nesrin Abu Ata

Dr. Nesrin Abu Ata is a board-certified family medicine physician and psychiatrist. Her training in Integrative Psychiatry comes from the renowned Integrative Psychiatry Institute (IPI). She has practiced in many clinical settings and has worked with people of all ages and walks of life. She has medical licenses in 10 states and is a telepsychiatry specialist.

Dr. Abu Ata will work with you collaboratively to create a comprehensive treatment plan which may include medication when appropriate, psychotherapy (“talk therapy/counseling”) and lifestyle changes.

One of the therapeutic modalities she uses is being mindful and paying attention to the current experience. As a result, this experience of “co-creating” is rooted in mindfulness and the physical experience of being alive.

There is often a mismatch between what a person is saying and thinking and how the body is reacting. However, when we integrate the mind and the body, alchemy (transformation) happens in both the mind and the body.

“Body and soul cannot be separated for purposes of treatment, for they are one and indivisible. Sick minds must be healed as well as sick bodies.”
