V. Nia Shell, MD
Dr. Shell, a board certified Integrative Physician, has worked for 25 years to bring a holistic focus and her healing skills to
aide those seeking improved mental health. She graduated from Drexel College of Medicine, completed Family Medicine
internship, residency in General Psychiatry & her fellowship in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.
Dr. Shell sees the person she treats as a whole being whose body and mind work in well-orchestrated harmony when
the person's concerns are addressed from an integrative approach. This includes obtaining a comprehensive history of
present and past mental, somatic, and family health. Discussing diagnostic impressions with the patient/parent/family
and working out treatment goals are key to the promotion of healing.
Dr. Shell favors a measured reliance on psychopharmacology and supports formulating a holistic treatment plan that
includes adequate nutrition, sleep hygiene and complementary health interventions. Healthy mind, body and spirit is
our natural legacy; it allows us to get the most out of and contribute our best to this life's journey. Dr. Shell looks
forward to supporting your health goals as you travel along the way.
