    What is Root Cause Psychiatry?

    True wellbeing doesn’t just rely on the health of your brain. It also relies on the health of your cells, your genes, your gut, your immune system, and so much more.

    To truly feel emotionally well, each of these “root causes” must be addressed. And in Potomac’s Root Cause Psychiatry program, that’s exactly what we do… to help you feel better and stay better.

    A different approach to better mental health.

    Whole Body Wellness

    We evaluate your mental health ecosystem, including genetics, cellular functioning, and gut microbiome, to restore your health.

    Personalized Treatment

    You are unique—your care should be, too. We tailor treatment to your individual ecosystem for results you can truly feel.

     Integrated Care

    Our collaborative team—your healing companions—walk with you each step of the way to help you flourish.

    Using Root Cause Psychiatry to build your personalized roadmap to recovery

    Root Cause Psychiatry treats both your mind and your body—but most importantly, it treats you as the unique individual you are.

    Working together as your Root Cause Team, psychiatrists Dr. Kehr or Dr. Stokes and nutritionist Julie Wendt combine their expertise to build a personalized treatment roadmap specific to your biological, psychological, and social needs. Your dedicated program manager, Dana Schwartz, will coordinate and manage every aspect of your care. And your team will meet weekly to answer your questions and discuss your progress.

    This process personalizes every step of your journey—and we are honored to be a part of it.

    • Step 1: Build a Blueprint

      To build your treatment plan, we listen to your story and administer genetic, nutritional, gut microbiome, and other comprehensive lab assessments to determine baseline root causes of your illness and blueprint our initial interventions.

    • Step 2: Address Additional Root Causes

      Based upon your initial treatment response, your team may identify additional root causes, add them to your integrative health blueprint, and recommend refinements to your treatment roadmap.

    • Step 3: Restore your Health from the Roots Up

      Your team will then monitor your progress over 12 months and refine the plan as needed. Treatment will consist of specific solutions for each and every root cause of illness or suffering, from medication to dietary recommendations, talk therapy, supplements, and more.
