Dr. Jane Caplan, MD
Dr. Jane Elizabeth Caplan, M.D. has been practicing as a Board Certified Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist in the Phoenix area for the past 15 years. She completed her adult psychiatry residency at the Harvard Longwood program (Brigham & Women’s hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess hospital 2001-2004) and her pediatric fellowship at Harvard as well (Massachusetts General hospital, McLean hospital 2004-2006). Since that time, she has been in private practice, specializing in both psychopharmacology and psychotherapy, with a wide range of therapeutic expertise.
She has special interests in attachment theory, trauma, addiction, and depression. She has recently developed a methodology for cutting edge treatment with ketamine assisted psychotherapy, leading to quick resolution of typically resistant psychological symptoms. Case studies are currently being prepared for peer reviewed publication. She is also looking into the use of MDMA for treatment resistant PTSD.
Dr. Caplan has been extensively involved in her local community. She has been an active volunteer for Boys Hope Girls Hope for over 10 years, with 5 years combined for the program committee and Board, in order to assist undeserved adolescents with tremendous academic potential. More recently, she joined the Board of the AZ Justice Project, committed to the innocent and wrongfully imprisoned.
She maintains an active license in both Arizona and Hawaii, where she spends her summers working in the mental health and legal systems. Otherwise, she has spent her summers working on inpatient psychiatry units and detoxification/rehab units for addiction.
Personally, she has cultivated a deep meditation and yoga practice and has led meditation groups. Her philosophy on deep healing is that it occurs across the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms.
