Mental Health & Spirituality with Dr. Michael McGee
Mental health, well-being, and resilience all rely on multiple intelligences, including physical intelligence (healthy body), cognitive intelligence, emotional intelligence, and spiritual intelligence.
Spiritual intelligence is a capstone intelligence that affects all the other intelligences. It is defined as “behaving with compassion and wisdom (love) with internal and external peace (equanimity) under all circumstances. There are 21 spiritual skills that make up spiritual intelligence in the realms of personal awareness, awareness of others’ worldviews, self-mastery, and the ability to be a compassionate and wise force in the world. Therapists can identify and address all these skills in their clients and help to cultivate them as a way of reducing stress, conflict, depression, and anxiety.
Our March program features Dr. Michael McGee, who received his M.D. from Stanford University and completed his residency in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He has directed several treatment programs, conducted government-funded outcomes research and has published in the areas of spirituality, clinical treatment, performance management, care management and health information technology.
Dr. McGee is Board Certified in General Psychiatry, Addiction Psychiatry, and Psychosomatic Medicine. He has extensive experience in addictions treatment, geriatric psychiatry, and general adult psychiatry.
Dr. McGee has a private practice in San Luis Obispo, where he practices a combination of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. His approach is eclectic. He includes psycho-spiritual interventions to compliment biological and cognitive-behavioral interventions. He actively collaborates with other therapists to optimize care. He provides home visits and telepsychiatry for those with mobility issues.
