A board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist, Dr. Eileen Zhivago is the founder of Cohesive Health and Wellness, a team of welcoming psychiatric providers and psychotherapists. The practice treats children, teens, adults, families and couples by addressing each patient’s needs in a safe, welcoming space. With a collaborative approach to care, the therapists help individuals live fulfilled, meaningful lives and overcome barriers and everyday stress.

Holistic, Modern Approach to Treatment

“We’re not ‘one size fits all’—our approach is to develop individualized and creative care with a wide range of therapies,” Dr. Zhivago says. “We help our patients take back control of their lives, whether it’s through lifestyle transitions or medical challenges.”

The team employs a holistic approach to treating psychiatric issues while integrating modern treatment, a humanistic perspective and the patient’s experiences. “We focus on the interaction between a patient’s emotions, thoughts, physical sensations and lived experiences to determine why they struggle and how we can help them achieve balance and lead a meaningful life,” she says.

Compassionate, Stigma-Free Care

The team invites their patients to explore new skills, techniques and perspectives to enhance personal growth, self-discovery and self-awareness. They maximize each patient’s strengths and resilience by forming genuine, meaningful and stigma-free relationships while offering comprehensive psychiatric evaluations and medication management if needed.

“We combine our experience with compassionate care to help patients unravel issues and overcome day-to-day hurdles,” Dr. Zhivago says. “The Cohesive Health and Wellness team is well equipped to enter the journey to wellness alongside each and every one of our patients with time, patience and understanding.”
