I have been going to Dr Stein for 10 years. Being a nurse, I am cautious about placing my trust in a random doctor. Dr Stein understands how long term depression can deteriorate a persons ability to function. She is a genius in her knowledge of the action of medications. For years I used my internist for help with chronic depression and realized he "tried" drugs to see what worked without the pharmacological knowledge necessary for treating anxiety and depression. I have never felt that she questioned my "feelings" as being real, which is very important to me in trusting a psychiatrist. My biggest fear: what I would do without her?

Dr. Stein and her staff have changed my life. She hung in with me through some pretty dark days, and has always been available when I needed her. Together, we found the right combo of medicine and nutritional supplements to bring me back to normal.

Kira is incredibly smart, kind and intuitive. She is also immensely practical. This combination creates easy trust and clear communication from the outset. Ask her anything. She'll give you an answer, and tell you why. I have always been treated with optimism and personal respect. Working with her, I feel like a "normal" person with problems, instead of a "wreck" who's been triaged into treatment to survive. I feel "understood," and I feel we have a tangible "plan" to address the lifetime of pain from my anxiety, depression and family trauma. In short, very knowledgeable, very kind, very practical... and easy to open up to.

Biography

I am a psychiatrist and have been a medical doctor for two decades. I partner with my patients to help them reach and maintain mental health and balance. I chose psychiatry as my medical specialty because I thoroughly enjoy both the science of medicine and the application of psychotherapy - both effective tools that can be used independently or in combination to achieve emotional wellness. I am also interested in supplements (such as omega-3 fatty acids, certain herbs, vitamins and minerals), relaxation techniques and exercise approaches to mental wellness, and also provide consultations for non-invasive, non-drug treatment for depression. I have not provided TMS for a number of years and refer appropriate TMS candidates to larger centers
