We’re a team of clinicians and staff who have dedicated our lives to research, education, and treating those with mental health conditions. We’re especially passionate about helping those with Treatment-Resistant Depression and providing the most advanced therapies available, including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine nasal spray, both FDA-approved for advanced depression.
Mental health conditions can be profoundly painful and isolating, making it difficult to seek help. Our team provides a unique, patient-centered experience to help you find the appropriate treatment and relief from your symptoms. We’re grateful to be practicing psychiatry during this era in which there are so many new treatment possibilities and new hope for those with mental health conditions.
During his medical school rotations, Dr. Rosi found that the ongoing nature of the psychiatrist-patient relationship enabled him to develop a more complete understanding of his patients and was heartened that this work helped them to transform their lives.
Dr. Rosi believes in building a trusting working relationship with his patients through open communication and educating them about all available modalities so treatment decisions can be made collaboratively.
Using a holistic approach that emphasizes pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments, including psychotherapy, neuromodulation, and developing healthy living habits, Dr. Rosi works together with his patients toward the goals of symptom elimination and restoring health. Currently, he is seeing patients ages 14 and older.
When he’s not in clinic, Dr. Rosi enjoys hiking in the mountains, as well as playing basketball and soccer.
Patience Morikang began showing interest in psychiatry while in nursing school. She was passionate about helping mental health patients at clinical rotations, especially when others were more reluctant. She gradually realized that this was her calling as she was drawn more and more to this population. She became dedicated to changing the stigma surrounding mental health struggles and wanted to be a part of treating their symptoms. She pursued a higher degree to be able to provide a higher level of care and create a positive impact on mental health.
In working with her patients, Patience is highly collaborative and starts by listening to what the patient has to say. She works in tandem with the patient to come up with the best possible treatment for their symptoms in a nonjudgmental way. She provides her patients with tools to cope with daily stressors and hopes her patients stay actively involved in their health through communication with her as they work towards relief and recovery from their suffering.
Patience has learned that not all patients respond to antidepressants and/or talk therapy alone. She appreciates both Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine nasal spray as alternatives for patients who have not responded to other treatments. Both of these treatments are FDA-approved and noninvasive, offering potential healing when other forms of therapy have not provided sufficient relief from the symptoms of depression.
Palei Alfaro is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is working at Mindful Health Solutions’ Sacramento clinic as a Psychotherapist. She has a passion for anxiety and depressive disorders. She feels that these areas are what the typical person encounter more often in life, and she has developed an expansive “coping skills toolbox” to address many of the symptoms associated with the diagnosis. She is also interested in behavioral areas like ADHD and mood disorders as well.
As a therapist, she describes her personality as positive, outgoing, and overall bubbly. She is genuinely hopeful and happy in working towards each of her patient’s personal successes. With that, she aims to establish safety, security and stability. Meaning she wants each patient to feel safe, and to understand that she provides a non-judgmental and unbiased space for them to build trust and establish a meaningful therapeutic relationship, and to know that they can depend on consistent and thorough treatment.
Palei Alfaro comes to Mindful Health Solutions because of the cutting edge technology in mental/behavioral health field here. Seeing that, she immediately knew this was the place for her. For years, she had been following and studying advances in treatment for mental health disorders and have always felt that there should be more access to these treatments. Treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine treatments allow people to have alternatives to traditional medications, and find something that works for them.
Understanding that people come to see a psychiatrist for a variety of reasons yet share the same pain, Dr. Filip will meet her patients in that vulnerable spot in a caring and sensitive way, helping them find their strengths to feel more confident and recognize they are not alone in their struggles.
For her, each person has a unique makeup of personality traits and has the right to be heard and understood, finding comfort and safety in sharing their emotions in an encouraging, empathetic and warm environment. Her therapeutic approach is to mutually arrive at an understanding of the problem through active listening and social perceptiveness and develop a holistic plan by using critical thinking and complex problem-solving skills.
When working with a patient, she assesses the risks, develops an individualized treatment plan, and may order laboratory and diagnostic tests. She believes that the thoughtful use of psychopharmacology, combined with psychotherapy and other noninvasive treatments, helps in treating the person as a whole and not merely treating the symptoms.
Dr. Filip developed a special interest in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a non-invasive and effective therapy for treatment-resistant depressive disorders. TMS produces painless repetitive magnetic pulses targeting the deeper limbic system, which is vital in regulating emotional responses. It activates the brain regions that have a decreased activity in depression.
