Allen Psychiatry

At Allen Psychiatry, you are seen and treated by an experienced and board-certified Psychiatrist, Shahla Ali, MD. Contrary to common practice, at Allen Psychiatry, you are not treated by a nurse, physician assistant, medical assistant, resident or intern. Dr. Ali personally sees and treats 100% of the patients 100% of the time. You do not have to speak with multiple people regarding your history, condition and treatment options. 

Allen Psychiatry is a recovery-oriented practice which emphasizes and supports a person's potential to recover from a wide range of psychiatric problems. At Allen Psychiatry, all patients are treated in a highly confidential, safe and warm environment. We respect patient's autonomy and patients are supported to be deliberate about the possible attributes and consequences of options, to arrive at informed preferences in making a determination about the best plan of action for treatment. At Allen Psychiatry you are treated as a unique individual on the ground of your specific  social, environmental and personal difficulties which can be addressed with sheer willpower, appropriate psychotropic medication adjustments, effective stress management and  coping skills in daily life.


We treat each patient in a personalized and highly confidential way where they feel comfortable sharing their symptoms, treatment options and concerns.


We educate patients in various treatment options and trade-offs to make educated and well informed treatment decisions.
