Dr. Cristina Poscablo-Stein, MD founded Wellspring Integrative Psychiatry with the mission of helping patients achieve mind-body wellness. She is a general adult psychiatrist and sees patients across the lifespan—from early adolescents to geriatric.
During medical school, Dr. Poscablo-Stein became interested in the emerging field of Integrative Medicine where she developed a unique healing philosophy. Her belief that understanding the whole of the person behind the presenting complaint and striving for wellness as the goal of care rather than only the alleviation of symptoms is the cornerstone of Wellspring’s mission. She continues to immerse herself in opportunities that broaden her understanding of mental health issues from a truly bio-psycho-social perspective, and it is from this stance that she approaches the care of each patient.
Dr. Poscablo-Stein has a deep passion for women’s mental health specifically around the time of motherhood. She understands the special considerations of women during her childbearing years, particularly with respect to medication use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Her specialized offering of pre-conception counseling, psychiatric evaluation, and treatment during pregnancy and postpartum can help women make the best decision for her mental health care and the well-being of her children.
Dr. Poscablo-Stein also has an interest in the unique mental health needs of adolescents, college/graduate students, and young professionals. For many, these are times filled with life transitions and stress that can impact mental wellbeing. Lifestyle approaches can be particularly helpful for these individuals.
After graduating from Rutgers University with a BA in Biology and Sociology, Dr. Poscablo-Stein received both MPH and MD degrees from George Washington University in Washington, DC. She then went on to complete residency training in General Psychiatry at Emory University. During her final year of training Dr. Poscablo-Stein served as Chief Resident at Grady Memorial Hospital. She has additional training in psychoanalytic theory from the Emory Psychoanalytic Institute, was named a Wellborn Fellowship Scholar and received support for advanced training in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy from the University of California San Diego’s Mindfulness-based Professional Training Institute. Dr. Poscablo-Stein holds an academic appointment at Emory University as Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry where she offers clinical services and provides psychotherapy supervision to residents. She is board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
With roots in the northeast, Dr. Poscablo-Stein now calls Atlanta home. Her private practice is located in the historic neighborhood of Grant Park. She is dedicated to meeting the mental health needs of Intown residents and the greater Atlanta area.
