Schultz who were involved in writing DSM III, DSM IV and DSM V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders by American Psychiatric Association). Dr. Yuan applies integrative mental health care to her clients to meet individual needs and emphasizes wellness and healing of the whole person. Dr. Yuan enjoys and believes in therapy.  In addition to working with medications, she also draws from her extensive training in evidence-based psychotherapies to help people achieve a higher quality and more productive life.

Part of what inspires her work is her deep compassion for people who suffer from mental struggles and she treats the clients the way she wants to be treated.
