Mind Optimization: Lessons from Psychiatry in Silicon Valley
Updated: Nov 14, 2019
Alex Dimitriu, M.D. completed medical school and residency in psychiatry at SUNY Stony Brook, and continued his training at Stanford Medical Center with a fellowship in sleep medicine. He is currently in private practice in downtown Menlo Park. He sees patients with a wide variety of conditions, ranging from depression to anxiety, to insomnia and other sleep disorders. He practices an integrative model of psychiatry, which aims to improve various domains of people's lives. He has always believed in the power of the mind, and the power of the spirit to heal the body. He consistently encourages integrated solutions such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and brief therapeutic interventions towards a multimodal approach to treatment.
Since living in Northern California, Dr. Dimitriu has fallen in love with the people, natural beauty and energy of the Bay area. He is the father of two beautiful young children. In his spare time, Alex is a lover of art, music and the outdoors. He enjoys live music, kiteboarding, and sailing. He grew up programming an Apple IIe, and enjoys flying RC planes with his son.
At the Salon: Silicon Valley is the creative and entrepreneurial center of the world. It takes super human ability to maintain and perform at such high levels. Over the past decade, Dr. Dimitriu has learned some basic, yet very important ideas to help his patients succeed in their personal and professional lives. He shared these essential concepts with us in hopes they will lead to 'mind optimization,' allowing substantial life and relationship improvements and success.
