Dr. Shippi supports her patients by using a bio-psycho-social model in understanding and addressing psychological distress. This is especially important, since the patients of Mother and Child clinic undergo many physical and emotional changes. This model assists Dr. Shippi in considering all elements that influence people’s wellbeing and to develop individually tailored therapy plans that match patients’ unique needs. Treatment plans are always based on current evidence-based research practices.
