In  Happiness Psychiatry, our patient philosophy centers around treating the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. We believe that the judicious use of psychopharmacology (using psychiatric medications to treat mental health conditions), coupled with psychotherapy (talk therapy), and other alternative treatments (such as meditation, Kundalini yoga, and walking therapy), can bring about transformative changes in the lives of those suffering from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other common mental conditions and life issues.

In our current fast-paced culture of high-stress and hard work, where we’re constantly scrambling to compete, climb the career ladder, juggle the demands of work and family, and maintain our mental health and sanity all at the same time, it is vitally important that we take time out for ourselves on a regular basis to check in with our own personal needs and desires. While it’s true that mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety have strong genetic underpinnings that may be out of our control, it is equally true that our ways of thinking and looking at the world, as well as our individual daily behaviors, contribute significantly to our overall levels of well-being.


In Happiness Psychiatry, we believe that happiness is a state of mind that takes practice, effort, and vigilance and that it is within everyone’s reach if we are willing to put in the time and effort for authentic self-reflection and personal growth. To this end, Dr. Ambardar’s unique integrative and holistic treatment method blends Eastern and Western philosophies for the optimal benefit of her patients. She uses psychiatric medications in conjunction with an eclectic blend of psychotherapeutic modalities including psychodynamic or insight-oriented therapy, solution-focused therapy, interpersonal therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, journal therapy, walking therapy, meditation, and Kundalini Yoga.
