Our offerings include medication/supplement management and wellness coaching for depression, anxiety, stress, grief, difficult transitions, and professional burnout. Dr. Hypolite strongly encourages, and in some cases, may require that patients have the additional support of a licensed psychotherapist (as well as regular primary care visits) in order to receive services in her practice.
Dr. Hypolite does not believe that every individual who experiences unpleasant or even painful emotions necessarily requires or would even benefit from psychiatric medication.
Dr. Hypolite has a relatively conservative approach to medication management and believes that sometimes people may only need time, rest, self-care, support from loved ones, and/or psychotherapy to heal from stressful and painful life circumstances and emotional wounds.
It is sometimes a fine and unclear line between those who only need therapy and self-care versus those who may additionally benefit from medication to further heal and recover emotionally. Teasing out this fine line is Dr. Hypolite’s specialty!
Please note that given that Aspira is a Telepsychiatry-only practice, controlled substances (for e.g. Xanax, Ativan, Adderall, Amphetamines, Ritalin, etc.) are not prescribed.
Dr. Hypolite’s practice is a safe space to explore evidenced-based, alternative and complementary health modalities, such as supplements and self-care routines, to help with milder cases of stress, depression, and anxiety.
Dr. Hypolite believes mental health and wellness are not just about therapy and meds. Much of our mental health has to do with our daily habits and our lifestyles. Dr. Hypolite collaborates with wellness specialists who work with her patients to help them identify and establish a wellness/self-care “toolkit” that consists of sustainable, individualized self-care routines.
Through Aspira’s personalized assessments, we partner with you (as well as with your therapist and other physicians should you so choose) to develop a comprehensive and holistic plan to achieve not only mental, but full mind-body wellness.
On a case-by-case basis, Dr. Hypolite provides second opinion consultations as well as consultations for certain surgical and anesthesia procedures that require a psychiatric evaluation.
We offer Compassionate Care for Physicians and Clinicians. While our work can be incredibly rewarding, if we are not diligent in maintaining self care, self love, and healthy boundaries with our work, it can take a toll. Dr. Hypolite has shared that she learned this the hard way, and learned to become her own and most important patient, so to speak. Caring for and catering to the unique needs of physicians and clinicians is an honor and a privilege. Reach out today for more information about our services.
Dr. Hypolite is frequently invited to participate in speaking engagements about mental health and wellness for media, colleges/universities, professional organizations, churches, civic organizations, retreats, and corporate events.
