We use a wholistic approach to your health by creating a plan with your "whole person" in mind. This means we look at not only your mental health, but also your physical and emotional health to optimize your overall well-being. We combine our wholistic approach with evidence-based and complementary medicine practices regarding lifestyle behaviors.
One core evidence-based practice we implement in our patient care is medication management. We are experienced in the psychiatric and medical evaluation of our patients and utilize a wide-range of prescription medications in treatment. Medication management may be one piece in our overall approach to improving your well-being.
In addition to medication management, we provide individual psychotherapy for adults across a broad range of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral difficulties.
