Brain Soul Success Podcast: Featuring Dr. Achina Stein, on What if it's Not Depression

This week we have a very special guest and expert, Dr. Achina Stein.

She is a board-certified psychiatrist and has been in practice for 25 plus years. Propelled by her son’s health crisis in 2010, she found functional medicine which resolved all his mental health problems as well as her own. She has a busy private practice called Functional Mind LLC in Riverside, RI where she sees patients for functional medicine primarily but also sees patients for psychotherapy. She is a certified practitioner of the Institute for Functional Medicine, a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and was awarded the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award by NAMI-RI in 2008. She is a former Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

This is an exciting time for all of us because we have the opportunity now more than ever, to emerge from the ashes of the pandemic bigger and better than ever! What if it’s NOT depression is an interesting question to ask yourself if you are not feeling like yourself or know that you aren’t operating at your full capacity. This is a similar concept to what I say about healing the brain- It is more than just mindset. We have to clear the trauma’s that are stuck in the brain. The interesting thing about Dr. Achina’s story is much like many of my own clients, in that she wasn’t aware of all that SHE needed to heal until she went for it. She is better than ever, glowing and successfully helping others be THEIR best. WOW!
