I first met Dr. Beheshti in 2006. She is smart, kind, and easy to talk to and was easily one of my favorite components of a high-quality mental health program I was enrolled in. As a dual diagnosis patient with a long history of anxiety and depression, managing the medical component of my progress has been critical to being able to grow as a person and move past my issues. I left the treatment center after six months, and I decided to keep seeing Dr. Beheshti while I tried to get my life back together. Within a few years, I was back in school, working, had built meaningful relationships with my family, and had real friends. I felt like a person again.
