Daniel Irby, MD: Esketamine and TMS
Dr. Irby is a Board-Eligible Psychiatrist whose focus is on Depression and Mood Disorders. He has a special interest in trauma, teens/young adults, group dynamics, cultural and gender/sexuality issues in mental health, and lifestyle/alternative modalities.
During medical school, Dr. Irby wrote his master’s thesis on the various forms of stigma felt by patients with HIV who were receiving care at a clinic in Oakland, CA. He interviewed patients and explored how the health care system may perpetuate stigma and shame felt by these patients. It was this exploration
and listening to their stories that led him towards psychiatry, where he knew he would have the opportunity to spend time with patients, listen to them, and help them with their various struggles.
In working with patients, he seeks to collaborate with each individual in a manner that centers upon their unique needs and values. For Dr. Irby, mental health care is contingent upon each individual’s unique story. He loves thinking about how the mind works and learning from each patient in a collaborative approach to enhance mental and physical well-being. He especially appreciates patients who ask questions, are committed to change, and are willing to teach him about their individual experiences and needs.
Dr. Irby was first exposed to interventional psychiatry and to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) in his residency. It interested him because it is a flexible and powerful treatment that has few adverse effects and offers the possibility for recovery to individuals for whom medications have not been as helpful as hoped. Dr. Irby believes it can also be an excellent component of integrated treatment with psychotherapy and/or medication.
He joined Mindful Health Solutions in the Fall of 2020.
Josh Habansky, PMHNP: Medication Management
Josh is a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner with a passion for working with patients to optimize their mental health and well-being. He is committed to treating a variety of disorders with a focus on major depressive disorders and depressive symptoms.
Even as a young child, Josh was fascinated by the intricate workings of the brain and the complexities of human behavior. The interest drew him to study psychology and sociology in his undergraduate education and ultimately to realize a passion for working with patients in mental health. He began his career as a registered nurse caring for patients with various psychiatric diagnoses. This illuminated his path and inspired him to pursue additional education and training to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.
Inpatient care, he uses a collaborative and individualized approach to facilitate the achievement of treatment goals that are as unique as the individuals themselves. For Josh, each person seeking mental health care comes with his or her own set of values, experiences, goals, strengths, and weaknesses. He believes in integrating these differences into treatment. He views each patient as a complex being with specific mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs and considers all these facets of health when putting together a treatment plan.
For Josh, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) offers a novel, non-invasive treatment for depression and is an extremely effective alternative for patients that are suffering and haven’t found relief from a psychopharmacological intervention. While psychopharmacology has come a long way in the past several decades and can be lifesaving for many, some do not find recovery through medications alone, despite their best efforts and the efforts of their psychiatric providers. TMS may help these patients.
Josh joined Mindful Health Solutions in the Spring of 2020.

Kevin Rosi, MD: TMS
Dr. Kevin Rosi is Board Certified in Adult Psychiatry and specializes in child and adolescent care, early onset Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, and eating and developmental disorders. He also has extensive experience in treating behavioral disorders, such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, as well as impulse control and psychotic disorders.
Dr. Rosi was inspired to become a physician after witnessing the birth of his younger sister; he was deeply impressed by the role doctors played in physically and mentally assisting people through some of their toughest and most profound moments. During his medical school rotations, he found that the ongoing nature of the psychiatrist-patient relationship enabled him to develop a more complete understanding of his patients and was heartened that this work helped them to transform their lives.
Dr. Rosi believes in building a trusting working relationship with his patients through open communication and educating them about all available modalities so treatment decisions can be made collaboratively. Using a holistic approach that emphasizes pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments, including psychotherapy, neuromodulation, and developing healthy living habits, Dr. Rosi works together with his patients toward the goals of symptom elimination and restoring health. Currently, he is seeing patients ages 14 and older.
Sahab Yaqubi, MD: TMS
Dr. Yaqubi is Board-Certified in Psychiatry with a strong specialty in helping patients struggling with Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders. He completed a fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine and is also experienced in treating neuropsychiatric disorders, e.g., Dementia or Parkinson’s disease associated with mood or anxiety. He is also trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Dr. Yaqubi takes a holistic approach to patient care and treatment plans, considering biological, psychological, and social factors. He has found that being in tune with his patient’s emotional pain is the key to developing a good rapport. To empathize with his patient’s emotional pain and be able to reduce their suffering is his focus at all times.
Through his years of treating patients with depression and other mood disorders, medication and therapy are basic tools that he has used successfully to find relief from suffering. But not all the patients fully respond to these therapeutic tools. For Dr. Yaqubi, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is another non-invasive therapeutic tool that can play a crucial role for those with treatment-resistant mood or anxiety disorders.
