Integrative Psychiatry is a psychiatric and functional medicine practice located in Sarasota Florida, owned and operated by Valerie Balandra ARNP, BC.  We strive to identify and treat the underlying cause(s) and contributors to symptoms of depression, anxiety, brain fog, fatigue, obesity, insomnia, burnout, and other contemporary health conditions. 

Our functional medicine approach includes identifying core imbalances which affect your brain, body, and life.  We realize that there is no separating the brain and the body. What affects the body affects your brain.

Our treatment recommendations are based on a very careful history, questionnaires, targeted laboratory testing, and patient preference. 

We Don't Guess; We Test!

Examples of core imbalances we assess for are:

  • Neurotransmitters
  • Hormones - adrenal, thyroid, Vitamin D, and reproductive
  • Inflammation
  • Oxidative Stress
  • Intestinal Permeability ("Leaky Gut")
  • Immune Activation
  • Detoxification Pathways
  • Genetic predispositions
