Interview with Dr. Amanda Baten:
Clinical and Nutritional Psychologist Dr. Amanda Baten cofounded The Center for Integrative Practices in New York City in 2010. A firm believer in holistic health and mind-body philosophy, Dr. Baten has worked to create a unique “one-stop-shop” multidisciplinary wellness environment, where innovative and talented alternative health professionals of various specialties work together to optimize patients’ mental and physical health. This unique mix of doctors and therapists offers New York City residents a comprehensive wellness center unlike any other. Dr. Baten’s specialties include providing patients with alternatives to conventional medications (for anxiety and depression), including Amino Acid and Nutraceutical therapies in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to ultimately empower people to optimize mental health. When asked how the philosophy of the Center works, she explains that patients may be recommended a combination of other services offered at The Center, such as acupuncture, Body Talk, massage therapy, traditional psychiatry, and chiropractic treatments. With a health center as diverse as The Center for Integrative Practices, each patient is considered holistically and treatments are tailored to each individual’s needs. What Dr. Baten has created with The Center of Integrative Practices is an approach to holistic medicine that takes every aspect of a patient’s life into consideration to find a specialized combination of treatments that works for each individual visitor. Dr. Baten is a featured specialist on national television networks and radio stations including the six-week series, “The Erica Hill Experiment” on CBS, “The View” and “20/20” on ABC. She is currently scheduled to appear on “The Dr. Holly Show” on the Veria Network, a health and wellness network, in the fall of 2012.
