Functional Medicine Practitioner

Achina Stein DO

Dr. Achina Stein is an osteopathic physician who graduated from UMDNJ school of osteopathic medicine in 1990 and has been in practice as a board-certified psychiatrist for 25 plus years. Her osteopathic roots set her apart from the conventional psychiatrists because of her use of osteopathic philosophy and biopsychosocial treatment approach. Initially on a psychoanalytic track, she became well trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and CBT and does psychotherapy with several people with underlying trauma issues, specifically mood and dissociative disorders. She has much experience working with the prison population, community mental health center with the chronic and persistent mental health population, and geriatric psychiatry inpatient population. She understood the limitations of treatment with medication and continually searched for other modalities of treatment. Propelled by her son’s health crisis in 2010, she found functional medicine which resolved all of his health problems as well as her own and since then, has been practicing functional medicine. She is certified by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and is a certified practitioner of the Institute for Functional Medicine. Dr. Stein is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and awarded the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award by NAMI-RI in 2008. She is presently in private practice in RI and co-owner of Functional Mind, LLC.
