As your psychiatry specialist, Stacy will work with you to create a safe and comfortable environment where you can explore your thoughts and emotions and develop effective coping strategies.
In addition to therapy, she offers medication treatment plans tailored to your specific needs.

Psychiatrist Sally Daganzo

Sally Daganzo

MD, FACP

Meet Dr. Daganzo, our esteemed collaborating physician at Journey Telepsychiatry. She has taken on the role of filling a critical gap in the medical community: providing complete care that addresses both the physical and mental health needs of patients. Dr. Daganzo specializes in caring for individuals affected by eating disorders – a group that often faces significant challenges in finding specialized medical care.
Eating disorder patients often suffer from complex mental and physical conditions that require coordinated treatment. Unfortunately, due to the lack of available resources and support, these patients often fall through the cracks of the healthcare system. That’s where Dr. Daganzo comes in.
With her unique background in the physical sciences and extensive experience teaching undergraduates at UC Berkeley, Dr. Daganzo brings a rare combination of intellect, logic, and compassion to patient care. Her passion for medicine shines through in her tireless efforts to ensure that her patients receive the specialized and comprehensive care they need to achieve their health goals. Dr. Daganzo is a true patient advocate and is committed to providing her patients with the best care possible.

“Given disordered eating is often the precursor to an eating disorder developing, it’s important to address it as soon as it presents itself. Disordered eating alone is certainly harmful, but eating disorders are much more damaging to our bodies and minds. You deserve to live your best life. Book an appointment with us today.”
