Dr. Gisela Knebl Kohl founded Certus Psychiatry & Integrated Care in Winston-Salem. A native of Argentina, she was a chemical engineer before following her passion and went to medical school. Her vision of psychiatric care involves looking at the entire patient, including lifestyle, nutrition habits, and physical activity. She then works on developing strategies where patients are active participants in their care.
In starting Certus, Dr. Kohl has taken her career of knowledge in psychiatry and created an independent practice where she has developed her own proven unique paths to wellness in patent care. She and her husband, Federico, who runs the practice with her, enjoy a happy life with their four children, including triplets who attend Wake Forest University, and a young daughter in elementary school.
