Archana Trivedi, MD, Psychiatrist

She earned her medical degree in India and her early psychiatric training was completed at Central Institute of Psychiatry, Ranchi, India. Dr. Trivedi completed her residency in Psychiatry at the University of Arizona.

Being trained in India as well as in the United States gives her double distinction of having trained in two culturally and ethnically different societies. This gives her a unique ability to understand the meaning of culture and ethnicity difference in the contemporary world on mental health services. She believes in integrating the psychodynamic principles applicable to the patients with psychopharmacology in the practice of psychiatry for a better treatment outcome.  She is also open to interventions such as ECT in treatment-resistant cases.

Her warm, accepting approach is appreciated by many of her patients. She is known for her excellent personal care and ability to establish a therapeutic relationship with her patients. She works closely with the patients and their families to develop the treatment plan that best meets their individual needs.
