Lori Calabrese MD
Innovative Psychiatry Offers You Hope
We’re committed to you — to the art and science of restoring you to your best self. From the moment we meet, you’ll know this is a very different type of psychiatric practice. A place where we begin with what you used to be like at your best self. And then trace the story of how you fell away from that. Your spirit — what happened to it? Your energy? Your relationships? Your body? Your ability to just enjoy little things? A place where all of the symptoms that weave together to become the story of your current distress get teased apart.
Lori Calabrese, MD offers Innovative Psychiatric Treatment for
- Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, OCD, PTSD, Social Anxiety and
- Suicidal Thoughts
We look at your genes – those that regulate your brain functioning and the processing of medications through your liver, those that help predict if you’re likely to have a rapid and robust response to innovative treatments like IV Ketamine Treatment and Esketamine.
Ketamine is the most groundbreaking treatment of 2020.
We look at inflammatory factors that may have altered your brain functioning. We’re even interested in your gut microbiome – the diverse bacteria that inhabit your gut and profoundly affect your mood.
We look at what’s worked and what hasn’t worked for you.
And then we offer you the most comprehensive psychiatric diagnostic evaluation available.
Our goal, quite simply, is to restore you to your best self. We provide the expertise to do just that.
If you’ve struggled with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, trauma, suicidal thoughts, or other mental health issues that aren’t being helped, contact us today. Let’s find solutions together.
A Leader Among Her Peers
About Dr. Calabrese
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Calabrese is a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and completed her residency training at Massachusetts General Hospital. She has served as a clinical faculty member at both Harvard Medical School and Yale School of Medicine and is often thought of as “a doctor’s doctor,” as so many physicians and their families rely on her expertise, treatment, and referrals.
Dr. Calabrese is a specialist among her peers in psychopharmacology and interventional psychiatry, and incorporates the newest scientific information regarding brain health, genetic testing, inflammation and the brain-gut microbiome connection into the care of her patients.
Pioneer in Psychiatric Treatment
She is the first psychiatrist in Connecticut to expand her psychopharmacology practice to provide the most comprehensive array of treatment options available, and to offer both cutting-edge IV Ketamine infusions and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as consultation and treatment services for patients whose symptoms have not responded to other treatments. IV ketamine treatment is offered during the day and with extended hours so that you don’t have to interrupt work or school to get well.
Dr. Calabrese has published seminal work using IV ketamine in depression with suicidal thoughts and has been invited to present the results of her extensive clinical experience using ketamine treatment at several national and international conferences, including the American Psychiatric Association, International Association for Suicide Research and the American Suicide Foundation International Research Summit on Suicide, the American Association of Suicidology, KRIYA Conference, and the American Society of Ketamine Physicians.
