Treatment Approach

Integrative & Holistic

Dr Benedek incorporates the most effective approaches from western and eastern medicine.  She will include assessment of all elements of lifestyle as well as factors related to mind body spirit & community.

Address Underlying Causes

A goal of my approach is to determine the underlying causes of your particular concerns.  This involves a combination of detailed history taking, including collateral history and selective testing.

Increased focus on Resiliency & Self Efficacy & Less Focus on External Treatments

From the initial assessment my intention is to minimize  your dependence on external treatments, both biological and psychotherapeutic.  This means that behavior changes and skills building are a priority from the start
