Dr. Jasmin is our board certified psychiatrist who has always had the belief in the mind, body and soul connection. In addition she feels it is important to look at every person as a whole to get to the root of the problem as opposed to separate body parts that need to be addressed with a "band aid" or medication which is why she went into the osteopathic medical field. In the realm of psychiatry she believes that psychiatric medication can be used as an option to bring stability into your life but it is not the only choice and we can utilize other treatments to help improve your quality of life. If you require medication Dr. Jasmin likes to prescribe a minimum amount that will help you function but also recommends combining medication with extra tools like psychotherapy, mindfulness/meditation, yoga, diet, and exercise to naturally improve your life.
Dr. Jasmin has had over 10 years of experience in the field of psychiatry. She graduated from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ majoring in Psychology and moved on to her medical training at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey School of Osteopathic Medicine (UMDNJ-SOM) located in Stratford, NJ.
She then started her psychiatric residency training under
Seton Hall University affiliated with Trinitas Regional Medical Center located in Elizabeth, NJ for three years and went on to a Child and Adolescent Fellowship at
Penn State University- Milton Hershey Medical Center for one year.
After leaving her training she had the gratification working at Rutgers University Behavioral Healthcare in Newark NJ for several years in the Adult Partial Hospitalization Program, Child Partial Hospitalization Program and Children’s Crisis department. Dr. Jasmin then moved to Maryland for one year working as a locum tenens physician as a Unit Director at an adult inpatient recovery program and then a nonprofit clinic taking care of adults, adolescents and children before moving back to New Jersey.
Since moving back to New Jersey, Dr. Jasmin has had the pleasure to work at Hackensack Meridian Health Network's Debra Simon Center outpatient clinic for several years taking care of adolescents and adults.
Although Dr. Jasmin loved working at the facilities mentioned above she did not like the model of brisk appointments with her patients. She always felt the need to be able to take time and get to know every single patient without being rushed in order to get to the root of what was causing their distress with the goal to improve/transform their quality of life which is what prompted her to go into private practice.
