Desert Rose couldn't be more fortunate to have Dr. Kapila as our Medical Director. A highly qualified medical professional, she serves with a great love for those who need proper psychiatric care in their journey toward sobriety.
Dr. Kapila obtained her medical degree from Lady Hardinge Medical College Hospital in New Delhi, India, and completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology training in the UK. She also completed a residency in psychiatry at the V.A. Medical Center/Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York, and has been in private practice since 1981.
The combination of knowledge and compassion forms a foundation for the individual care she offers each client. She specializes in mood disorders, eating disorders, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, bipolar disorder, memory disorders (and related psychiatric illness), and psychosis.
She says, "I believe in a person’s ability, motivation, and attitude in the recovery process – the ability to exercise what you are capable of doing; the motivation, which determines what you will do; and the attitude, which determines how well you will do it. A sound mind and body relationship is what we fight for.”
