David Capelouto earned his MD from Florida State University College of Medicine and completed his General Psychiatry Residency at the University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill, NC. During his time there, he worked with a variety of clients experiencing myriad different conditions. He is a psychiatrist who truly possesses a deep understanding of his patients’ conditions. He has found the process of slow and personal healing through therapy to be more rewarding than the inpatient work he used to do, where he was not able to focus his attention on the individual needs of his clients and follow their progress the way he is now. Dr. Capelouto believes that the combination of medication and good therapy proves fundamental to the healing process. He currently treats ages 8 and up at our MindPath Care Centers location in Durham, NC, where he specializes in anxiety, depression, alcohol use, and eating disorders.
Why did you choose mental health as a career path?
“I had known that mental health would be my chosen career path since early in my academic career. I was a psychology major in undergraduate, which further helped to solidify my aspirations to enter medical school and pursue a psychiatry residency. Psychiatry is a great contribution of therapeutic techniques with medications that allow the physician to be a more complete healer.”
