(We are a )Holistic psychiatric practice centering around treating the whole patient: mind, body, and spirit. We believe that the judicious use of psychopharmacology (using psychiatric medications to treat mental disorders), coupled with psychotherapy (talk therapy), and other alternative treatments (such as meditation, yoga, and walking therapy), can bring about transformative changes in the lives of those suffering from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other common mental conditions and life issues.
Dr. Gulati's unique integrative and holistic treatment method blends Eastern and Western philosophies for the optimal benefit of her patients. Her practice uses psychiatric medications in conjunction with an eclectic blend of psychotherapeutic modalities.
Dr. Gulati’s private practice specializes in providing compassionate, experienced, confidential, and highly-customized psychiatric and psychotherapy services for all ages, in Charleston and surrounding areas.
Dr. Gulati does see children> 10 years old and adolescents with a limited scope of presenting problems. Please call for a complementary telephone assessment in which Dr. Gulati will spend approximately 10 minutes with you via telephone, free of charge, and decide whether your child is an appropriate candidate for treatment with her.

INITIAL 75-MINUTE COMPREHENSIVE MEDICAL AND PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION: This is the first office visit you will have with Dr. Gulati in which she will review your full medical, psychiatric, psychosocial, and family history. An accurate medical history is important to obtain at this first visit because certain conditions such as hypo/hyperthyroidism, diabetes, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease, and anemia (among many others), can present with psychiatric symptoms. Prior to this visit, please remember to complete the New Patient Evaluation Form
so that we will be able to make the best use of our time. During this session, your reason(s) for seeking treatment will be discussed in depth and a full treatment plan (including medications and/or psychotherapy if needed) will be prescribed. Fee: $250
30-MINUTE MEDICATION MANAGEMENT FOLLOW-UP SESSION: This is a follow-up session tailored specifically to any medication management issues you may have. Your mood symptoms and psychopharmacologic treatment plan will be discussed thoroughly, any appropriate changes to your medication regimen will be made, and supportive psychotherapy will be performed. Dr. Gulati is also regularly available to her patients by phone or e-mail for any follow-up questions regarding medication changes. Fee: $75
60-MINUTE MEDICATION MANAGEMENT + PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSION: During this dual-purpose, customized follow-up session, we will adjust and alter your medication regimen as needed, as well as engage in intensive psychotherapy. Dr. Gulati’s general treatment principle regarding psychotropic medications is to use the lowest effective dose of medication that successfully alleviates your mood symptoms. Regarding psychotherapy, specific treatment modalities used during sessions include psychodynamic or insight-oriented therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and interpersonal therapy. Fee: $150
60-MINUTE MEDICATION MANAGEMENT AND WALKING PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSION: Walking Psychotherapy is a unique and highly-beneficial addition to the therapist’s arsenal and Dr. Gulati is proud to be one of the few clinicians in Charleston to offer it to our clients. During this session, Dr. Gulati will meet you at a peaceful park or other location of your choice for a leisurely, relaxing, and highly therapeutic stroll. During our walk, we will engage in intensive talk therapy using the same psychotherapeutic techniques we employ at our regular office location. Lunch time and after-work appointments available. Fee: $200
60-MINUTE PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY SECOND OPINION and IN-DEPTH REEVALUATION: This session is specifically for patients who are currently seeing another mental health professional but would like a second opinion or complete reevaluation of their medication regimen. Your current medication regimen will be discussed in detail as well as your present mood symptoms and specific reasons for seeking reevaluation. All changes or adjustments in medication deemed appropriate will be made. Fee: $300
PAYMENT POLICY: Please note that in order to provide you with the highest-quality personalized service and to ensure the full confidentiality of your medical records, Dr. Gulati does not contract with any insurance providers. All services are paid for in full by the client at the beginning of each session via credit card, cash, or check. If requested, Dr. Gulati will be happy to provide you with a reimbursement form or “superbill” which you can present to your insurance provider in order to seek partial reimbursement for psychiatric or psychotherapeutic services rendered.
If you plan to use your insurance benefits, it is in your best interest to check with your insurance provider prior to your first appointment in order to understand the full details of your out-of-network mental health benefits. Dr. Gulati is considered an “out-of-network” provider for those with PPO insurance plans. These plans vary widely and typically reimburse patients anywhere from 20% to 90% of the total cost of each of our sessions.
