ANITA RAO MD
As an award-winning physician and psychiatrist, I specialize in providing patients (particularly those within high-profile or high-performance roles) with the clinical care they need – whether that be psychotherapy, talk therapy, or medication management – while working with the patient to align their internal aspirations and external lives. I adopt a wholistic approach to medication management where medication is important, but just one aspect of care. I cultivate an accepting space for you “as you are” and subsequently help my patients better understand themselves, their mental health and well-being, and lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives.
In addition to my clinical practice, I provide consulting solutions to both the public and private sector, ranging from multinational companies to start-ups. In my media work, I can assist in all levels of the creative process, from developing a concept to being an on-air/ on-camera presenter. As an academic, I am able to teach students of varying disciplines on mental health or psychiatric topics as it relates to their fields. My expertise and background allows me to contribute to initiatives at both the individual and systemic levels to address mental health outcomes.
