Jessica Clark, MD

Dr. Jessica Clark is a proud New Orleans native, having completed her Bachelors of Science Degree in Neuroscience at Tulane University, followed by attendance at LSU Medical School of New Orleans for both her undergraduate medical degree and her residency training in psychiatry. She treats patients from age 18 into the geriatric years of life. Upon completing residency training, Dr. Clark moved straight into full-time work treating the underserved population of Orleans and St. Bernard Parishes. Her years of service in such a setting were an invaluable learning experience that has prepared her above and beyond her numerical years of practice in psychiatry.
Having experience in both community mental health and private practice settings, Dr. Clark has had extensive experience in treating the full gamut of mental health illnesses, from mild impairment to severe psychopathology. She welcomes and appreciates treating all types of disorders and is particularly interested in the evaluation and treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorders, Women’s Health issues and Psychotic Disorders.
Though always considered by Dr. Clark to be an integral part of a person’s mental health well-being, the powerful effects of non-pharmacological treatments in all the various disorders have increasingly become a strong focus of her overall treatment initiative. Through research and self-practice, she has explored the many benefits of Mindfulness practices, incorporating physical adjuncts such as yoga and various breathing techniques. Dr. Clark regularly integrates these practices into her standard of care treatment, eager to do so, depending on each patient’s wants and needs.

Neha Kansara, MD

Having completed training in Infant, Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist I specialize in treating Developmental disorders of infancy, Autism, ADHD, trauma related disorders, transgender and other common psychiatric conditions such as mood disorders and anxiety disorders in both pediatric and adult populations. Treating an individual as whole is my approach to mental health. ” A sound mind is a sound body ” has always been my philosophy in delivering patient care. Providing thorough and thoughtful assessments are paramount, in order to achieve patient wellness. I use a multi-systemic approach involving therapy, family dynamics and pharmacological management.

Regarding my professional background, I was born in India and traveled internationally during my school years. I then returned to India for medical school. After completing medical school I worked as a mental health professional in Mumbai, India, before moving to the United States, where I successfully completed my residency training in adult psychiatry at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi. I relocated to New Orleans thereafter and completed a fellowship in infant, child and adolescent psychiatry at LSU. I worked in community mental health in Lafayette after completion of my fellowship and recently returned to New Orleans to join Integrated Behavioral Health.

Andrew Morson, MD

I have treated a variety of psychiatric conditions since I have been in practice. The most common ones have been generalized anxiety, depression, panic attacks and ADD/ADHD. I also have a lot of experience with Bipolar Disorder, OCD, personality disorders, and schizophrenia. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings and feel comfortable working with the entire spectrum of severity of illness.

Psychiatry requires understanding and compassion for the human condition and the adversities that come with it, as well as scientific knowledge of how the body affects emotional well-being. I believe one must address both biological and psychological factors contributing to one’s distress in order to treat the condition effectively, bringing about sustained relief.
I utilize treatment plans of medication management and supportive/insight-oriented psychotherapy to address biological and psychological factors in a person’s condition. I use cognitive-behavioral psychotherapeutic techniques to help a person modify behaviors and well-intentioned but sometimes maladaptive ways of thinking, thereby creating beneficial impact on mood, anxiety, and understanding of illness.
