A Message from Doctor Douek
Thank you for your interest in me, and in Sunshine Psychiatry. I am a board certified psychiatrist, treating children, adolescents and adults. I have an empathetic and non-judgmental approach, and I am committed to providing the highest quality of care for my patients. In my practice, I empower my patients to improve their coping skills and interpersonal skills in order to achieve their optimal mental health. I believe that psychotropic medications, when required, should only be one part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
Seeing patients in a private practice setting allows me to customize care for my patients without feeling rushed. I feel privileged that my sub-specialization in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry gives me the opportunity to diagnose and treat mental health issues at early stages and improve lifetime health outcomes.
Among other areas of expertise, I have experience in treating anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, mood disorders (bipolar disorder), psychotic disorders, trauma related conditions such as PTSD, personality disorders, substance use disorders, irritability and anger problems as well as neurodevelopment disorders including intellectual disabilities, autism, learning disorders, and ADHD.
I look forward to working with you, your family and other health professionals to help you achieve your optimal mental health and happiness.
Sahar Douek, M.D.
