Pacific Quest is pleased to announce a new member of the Clinical and Wellness teams: Dr. Robert Voloshin, Integrative Psychiatrist. Dr. Robert joins Dr. Shelly Ham and will be on-site full time. We are very excited to add another Integrative Psychiatrist to our team!
Dr. Robert received his BS from UCSD in Biology where he graduated Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. He went on to complete medical school at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in the San Francisco Bay Area, choosing osteopathic medical school because of its orientation towards integrative care and healing. In medical school Dr. Voloshin served as president of the Integrative Medicine Club. Dr. Voloshin went on to complete his Psychiatry Residency at the University of New Mexico as well as an additional year of fellowship training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. During his residency and fellowship Dr. Voloshin was involved in cutting edge addictions research. He continued to pursue his passion for integrative psychiatry during his training through research, journal clubs, and conferences.
In addition to Dr. Voloshin’s formal psychiatry training, he has pursued external psychotherapy training in Somatic Experiencing and Hakomi. Both therapies utilize mindfulness and are somatically oriented. Some of Dr. Voloshin’s primary influences in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry are Daniel Siegel MD and Bruce Perry MD, PhD. Dr. Voloshin places a strong emphasis on neuroscience in his work with young people. The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics which Pacific Quest utilizes and Interpersonal Neurobiology, the study of how our primary relationships affect the development of our brains and nervous systems, has a significant impact on his practice. His multifaceted approach to Psychiatry with an emphasis on family systems theory, developmental psychology, psychopharmacology, nutrition, mind-body approaches, and reconnection to the earth and community makes Pacific Quest an exquisite place for Dr. Voloshin to practice.
In his spare time Robert enjoys playing music, surfing, hiking, reading, travel, yoga, and meditation.
