Integrative Care for Mental Health Treatment in Los Angeles

Many providers use a “stabilize and discharge” method of mental healthcare, which can leave you without the tools and support necessary to overcome future obstacles. At ResWell, you receive an integrative approach to treatment that helps guide each aspect of your mental and physical well-being. With our collaborative, team-based care, you can learn how to optimize your overall wellness and weather the peaks and valleys of your lifelong journey more effectively.

What Can Integrative Care Help Treat?

Standard treatment approaches such as psychotherapy and medication can be very effective for addressing mental health symptoms. However, they don’t always address the underlying factors contributing to poor mental wellness. We provide integrative options in addition to standard care to help individuals improve each aspect of their lives — not just their symptoms.

Our approach helps patients and their families find ongoing support and lasting relief from a range of mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more.

How Our Integrative Treatments Help Improve Mental Health

Your individualized treatment plan may involve a variety of integrative, evidence-based services to better support your mental and physical health. These include:

Customized Coordinated Care

Our specialists collaborate not only with one another but also with the professionals and important individuals in your life. With precision care, we coordinate with teachers, schools, pediatricians, employers, family members, and other key figures to ensure you receive adequate support and understanding throughout your journey at home, work, or school.


Focused Diagnostic Assessment

We provide focused diagnostic assessments to help give a definitive diagnosis, determine its severity, and guide an effective treatment plan. This personalized approach ensures that the root causes of mental health concerns are identified and addressed rather than just managing the symptoms.


Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity to promote self-regulation. By observing your brainwaves and how they respond to certain triggers, you can learn to produce patterns associated with focus, relaxation, and calmness. Over time, this can lead to improved concentration, better emotional regulation, and decreased mental health symptoms.


Neuromodulation, or neurostimulation, is a non-invasive treatment that influences electrical activity in the brain, helping to reduce mental health symptoms and improve mood. We prescribe the Monarch external trigeminal nerve stimulation (eTNS) device, which is FDA-approved for pediatric ADHD. The device connects to a disposable patch placed on the forehead at bedtime. When turned on, it sends low stimulating pulses to the trigeminal nerve through the patch overnight.

Prescribed Movement

Exercise has been proven to have profound effects on mental well-being. Prescribed movement isn’t just about physical fitness; it’s also about using specific exercises to boost mood, decrease anxiety, and enhance overall wellness. Regular physical activity releases endorphins, reduces stress hormones, and can even help improve sleep — all vital for optimal mental health.

Nutrition & Supplementation

What we consume plays a significant role in our mental health. Balanced nutrition ensures the brain receives the nutrients necessary to function optimally. In some cases, supplementation can address deficiencies that may be contributing to mood disorders or other mental health concerns. A personalized nutrition and supplementation plan can support brain health, elevate mood, and strengthen mental well-being.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation teach you to stay present, focused, and able to accept your current state without judgment. Regular practice can reduce mental health symptoms while enhancing one’s overall well-being. By learning to observe thoughts without becoming entangled in them, you can gain a clearer perspective on their mental and emotional landscapes.


Yoga combines physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation to promote physical and mental well-being. Regular practice can reduce stress, improve flexibility (both physically and mentally), and create a greater sense of inner peace. The blend of movement and mindfulness in yoga offers a holistic approach to mental health, helping to balance the mind, body, and spirit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is integrative mental health treatment?

Integrative mental health treatment is a comprehensive approach to care that combines traditional care options with complementary, evidence-based treatments. Integrative care aims to address not only a person’s mental health but also other personal factors that can influence well-being. Treatments can range from medication and psychotherapy to meditation, nutritional counseling, prescribed movement, and more — all personalized to meet each patient’s unique needs and preferences.

What does research say about integrative treatment?

Research indicates that combining traditional and complementary mental health approaches can lead to better outcomes than using either method alone. Many studies have found that certain complementary therapies can enhance the effectiveness of traditional treatments, reduce side effects, and improve a patient’s overall well-being. However, treatments should always be evidence-based and personalized to address a patient’s specific condition and needs.

Why does ResWell focus so much on physical health?

At ResWell, we believe that mental and physical wellness are deeply interconnected. By working to optimize physical health through prescribed movement, nutrition, sleep hygiene, or other evidence-based methods, we can often reduce some of the mental health symptoms patients experience and help improve overall well-being. Improving physical wellness can help supplement mental health treatments, maximizing the healing benefits you receive.

What are the benefits of getting integrative treatment?

Integrative treatment offers several advantages, including:

  • Whole-person care: It considers the whole person — not just isolated symptoms. By addressing multiple aspects of your well-being, integrative treatment can help uncover and treat underlying issues that might typically be missed.
  • Personalization: Treatment is tailored to each patient’s unique needs.
  • Reduced medication reliance: While medication can be an essential part of treatment, integrative care often uses it alongside other approaches and can potentially reduce the need for medication.
  • Empowerment: Patients are more involved in their treatment planning, leading to increased motivation, engagement, and resilience in their healing journeys.
Why should I choose an integrative mental health center over a standard clinic?

Integrative mental health centers like ResWell can offer a more expansive approach to care. Unlike standard clinics that focus primarily on symptom relief, integrative centers aim to identify and treat the root causes of mental health challenges.

By incorporating a wide range of holistic, evidence-based treatments, integrative centers offer a greater ability to address individual needs and personalize care. This whole-person approach of integrative care can lead to more profound progress and resilience that lasts throughout your lifelong recovery journey.
