Evaluation & Medication Management

Dr. Hanita Chhabra, M.D.

I am proud to have been born and raised in the area. After completing medical school at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, I initially started my training at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I later changed to Psychiatry and completed my training at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006. I am a board certified adult psychiatrist with subspecialty certification in psychosomatic medicine. I was a consulting psychiatrist at Sheppard Pratt Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center for 5 years before moving to Anne Arundel County. These experiences helped solidify my comfort with prescribing medications for a variety of psychiatric illnesses, especially in complex cases and in combination with medical issues.

My practice focuses on psychiatric consultation and medication management, and TMS. This includes but is not limited to, diagnosis, designing a treatment plan, second opinion consultations, prescribing and managing medications, and legal expert opinions. Areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, geriatrics, and medical illness. Special interests include womens mental health and TMS. As Regional Medical Director for the Greenbrook TMS Greater Baltimore Region, I provide TMS Therapy for patients with depression.

Yael Schreiber, PA-C Columbia Office

 

I am a certified Physician Assistant with a Bachelor of Science Degree in PA Studies from Touro College. After completing my training in 2006, I began my career with work in Pediatrics, General Surgery and surgical specialties. Following that, I spent over four years practicing Physical Medicine and Rehabiliation at a busy Baltimore practice. My longtime interest in psychiatry, psychology and psychopharmacology led me to transition to My Mental Health in 2015.

 

I consider it a privilege to participate in a practice that offers such cutting-edge modalities as TMS, genetic testing, and both group and individual psychotherapy. My role is to provide safe and effective medication management of psychiatric conditions. I am committed to doing so with respect, compassion, and attention to each patients particular needs and circumstances.
