Professional statement

Dr. Lilia Romero-Bosch is a psychiatrist in Barrington, RI, where she works to bring medicine and mental health care together. She is dedicated to the practice of Functional Medicine, utilizing blood work, genetic testing, and other medical testing to provide specialized care and help her clients become as healthy as possible.

Dr. Bosch was the first physician to bring Functional Psychiatry to Rhode Island. Functional Psychiatry, which melds aspects of Functional Medicine with Psychiatry, focuses on helping individuals find their healthiest self and not just improving current symptoms. Her Functional Psychiatry techniques help improve ADHD, Depression, Anxiety and other common psychiatric disorders, which are often not helped by medications alone. She also sees patients with digestive, thyroid, and autoimmune problems, all of which impact brain health. She works with children, teenagers, young adults, college students, and adults in both English and Spanish.

Dr. Bosch uses her collaborative and comprehensive Functional Medicine techniques alongside psychodynamic and supportive therapies to best help her clients reach their goals. She focuses on treating clients as an entire being, not just their diagnosis.

Message to clients

"Many of my patients tell me that they've been unwell for a long time but have been told they're fine. If you're not feeling well, trust your intuition; your body is telling you something. If you're interested in finding your true vitality and you're committed to putting the work into getting there, I'm here to listen and walk with you on that journey."
