Expect that your first appointment with Dr. Molina will take roughly an hour or so, as it is necessary to obtain a comprehensive psychiatric, medical, (gynecological), social, and developmental history (including your past experiences and internal conflicts), utilizing a psychodynamic approach, in order to have a better understanding of your presenting symptoms. Together you and Dr. Molina will collaborate on a biological, psychological, and social (biopsychosocial) treatment plan that takes your unique narrative into consideration, in order to best support your journey towards optimizing your mental health and personal growth.
