What We Believe:


For many who suffer from mental conditions, life can be so painful or even unbearable, that wellness feels like it is not an option. The mission of SJIWC is to provide guidance in helping individuals escape the claws of mental illness through various treatment strategies, AND to embrace wellness.

Dr. Nangia provides a thorough evaluation and helps clients integrate various research-supported treatment strategies to help clients recover from mental illness, often including referrals to local community providers who can work well in conjunction with him. He specializes in medication support along with alternative treatment strategies.

While working to combat mental illness, he works on wellness, which is emphasized throughout treatment. We believe the real target of any treatment should be wellness; that simply responding to medications and therapy is not enough, since many people could still have symptoms such as occasional panic attacks, nightmares, and not feel they have a fulfilling life. We can help you reach your maximum potential and find balance in your life.



We believe everyone should have access to high quality evidence-based mental health treatment, and we pride ourselves on having a clinic that accepts most insurance plans and has a short wait-time for appointments.
