Dr. Schlachter practices integrative and holistic psychiatry. Because psychiatric diagnoses are diagnoses of exclusion, medical conditions, nutrition, support systems and lifestyle are important to know if considering medications and can be as important as medications. Dr. Schlachter practices with full disclosure and partners with her patients for optimum wellness.

Dr. Schlachter performs medical-psychiatric evaluations, sees patients for individual psychotherapy and provides medical management for other therapy experts.
