Why Peace Love Sloths? Because sloths are a symbol of calm, warmth, acceptance, and kindness. They're also just the right amount of ridiculous. As a psychiatrist I want to create a practice for children, teens, and adults that reflects these traits.


Meet Dr. Faraaz Merchant

Hey there! Welcome to Peace Love Sloths. I'm a psychiatrist in Reno, Nevada treating kids, teens, and adults. I'm looking forward to caring for you and your family.  The most important thing about me is I love to learn about people's stories and make them laugh- it's who I've always been. I come from strong roots; dad is a pediatrician, mom is a hair stylist/diva and they both own small businesses. I'm originally from Orlando but Reno adopted me and is now my home.

I've spent a long time becoming the best possible psychiatrist. I am Board Certified in both Adult and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and I've had the privilege of working at great places in Reno and Phoenix.



$350 the first month, then $130 per month gives you access to my psychiatric practice.


One price, no insurance hassles, and a high-quality direct relationship with your doctor


Timely responses, helpful answers, and a friendly person to help you get care when it counts
