VoyageHouston recently reached out to Dr. Richa Joy Gundlapalli asking to interview her for a series of articles featuring interviews with the most inspiring professionals, entrepreneurs and independent businesses in the Greater Houston area.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Richaritha Gundlapalli.
Richaritha, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I am a board certified integrative physician and have traveled around the world to learn, teach and consult on Integrative Wellness approaches especially for Mental Health, Behavioral Health, Hormonal health and other Complex cases.
My journey started with experiencing first hand that simply, ” a pill for an ill approach” does not work in large number of cases, as causes are not simple physical conditions but there are underlying emotional, mental and environmental factors. It requires a holistic approach, treating the person as a whole, not just collection of organs. So in my practice I have synthesized Modern Medicine, Integrative Modalities and Life Coaching into a Systems approach.
My journey has taken me to over 10 countries, for study and research before I set up my practice in the woodlands.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have actually been surprised with the openness of my patients and the enthusiastic response my practice has received. I attribute it to the fact that people at large are becoming conscious of the paradigm of wellness which aims at having a “Fulfilling Life” and not limiting concept of health to “not being sick”. It has been very gratifying to have had the opportunity to make an impact to so many people’s lives especially as many of them come to me after having struggled for years and seen multiple providers.
Integrative Wellness Center – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am the founder and medical director of, Integrative Wellness Center, in Woodlands, Texas. We are a practice dedicated to providing integrative and holistic solutions for mental health, emotional health and physical health conditions by offering a Synthesis of Modern medicine, cutting edge research based integrative modalities, mind-Body medicine and life coaching.
We specialize in Mental Health, Behavioral Health and Brain Health disorders (ADD, ADHD, Autism, learning disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar etc.,). I have trained personally with Dr. William Walsh, pioneer in this field and other leading practitioners/researchers.
Our unique proposition is that we believe in personalized Holistic Solutions for our patients distinct from isolated approach of treating them purely by symptoms.
We are most proud of the affection and references we receive from our clients which is a direct product of the break through results that they experience with us.
We are also proud of the fact that our model allows us to spend over and hour with every patient per session allowing us to give them the required time, attention and standard of personalized care which is rare in our industry.
These attributes make us a truly unique and differentiated value proposition for our clients.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I don’t think there is a single distinct moment but however I must admit every time I receive a note, call, email or another reach out from my clients, sharing how their and their loved one’s lives have been transformed by engaging with us, I feel a sense of gratitude for the opportunity and proud of the result.
