Hi everyone! My name is Vania…my patients call me Dr. M since my last name’s hard to say and remember. I’m a wanna-be Psychiatrist currently in my 2nd year of residency (2 yrs, 5 months left…but who’s counting?). I created Freud&Fashion after I recently got inspired by fashion blogs! I’m not exactly a fashionista (I mean, how can I be when I’m about $200K in debt), but I’d like to think I’m savvy with my “S0-cal Casual but Dressy-enough-for-work” kinda style.
But my MAIN purpose is to give a glimpse of the life of a new doctor with a passion to learn how to best help those who struggle for normalcy in life. I believe that someone with mental illness is just like someone with a diagnosis like hypertension…sometimes they need medication, sometimes they don’t…but either way, the illness shouldn’t prevent them from enjoying life. My life has definite ups and downs and as I learn to treat others, I undergo my own sense of therapy as well. So my goal is to share my experiences and give tips on therapy pearls that I learn along the way! (mixed in with a little of my own personal interests such as fashion, decorating, and food, which is fast-paced and easy enough for the life of any growing professional!).
