Co-Founder and Medical Director of Resilient Health


Our Co-Founder, Dr. Sharon Hausman- Cohen, received both her master’s degree and medical degree from Harvard Medical School. She is Board Certified in Family Medicine, is a Fellow of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and Board Certified in Integrative Medicine through the American Board of Physician Specialties. * She has been practicing Full Spectrum Family Medicine and Integrative Medicine for more than 20 years.

She is a speaker/educator for her peers, teaching regularly for The Texas Academy of Family Physicians as part of their continuing education program. She has also taught in other venues to physicians across the country, to medical residents and nurse practitioners in training as well as community members.

Dr. Hausman-Cohen has been the recipient of Austin Monthly’s Austin’s Best Doctor Award for 3 years in a row.

*Texas does not recognize integrative medicine as a board certification.

Integrative Interests

Dr. Hausman-Cohen’s focus has always been to educate patients regarding options in their care. Even before it was called integrative medicine, as a medical student at Harvard Medical School, she founded the alternative medicine lecture series, featuring Deepak Chopra, Bernie Siegel, Joan Borysenko and others. This series eventually led Harvard to develop a full alternative medicine curriculum.

Since she began practicing medicine, she has culled a wide breadth of knowledge and is well versed in patient options in both evidenced-based western medicine and evidenced based integrative medicine. Dr. Hausman-Cohen loves being a family physician and taking care of the whole person and all their healthcare issues big and small. She enjoys solving the mysteries and facing the challenges that patients present.

Her recent topics of integrative health and medicine include GI concerns, micronutrient deficiencies, thyroid dysfunction and brain health. Follow our newsletter to learn about her community lectures.

Unique Approach

Unique to her practice is the care and study taken to be certain that there is both excellent safety and efficacy research for a prescription medication, a supplement or vitamin. We also incorporate medical genomics (i.e. information about a patient’s particular DNA), nutritional and lifestyle counseling into our daily interactions with patients.

Dr. Hausman-Cohen is an avid life-long learner and is always applying what she learns. During the past few years, some of the most exciting research that she has incorporated into her treatment plans have included mitochondrial medicine (addressing the cellular energy source for the body- see success story of Lisa as an example).

New Work

Another area of excitement is the work she has begun in reversing cognitive impairment, early Alzheimer’s and more. She is one of the first family physicians to formally study with Dr. Dale Bredesen and become proficient in helping patients use his MEND (metabolic enhancement for neurodegeneration protocol) to reverse cognitive impairment or early Alzheimer’s, and more.
