Psychiatric services including diagnostic evaluations, medication management, as well as the use of integrative interventions and genetic testing are offered. There is often a stigma or sense of failure for being unable to fix the problems we have with our emotional health. These ideas may act as a barrier to exploring medications as an option. We believe in a larger context for promoting wellness and invite various approaches to emotional health, only one of which is medication. Our goal is to foster choice and partner with you for a truly collaborative approach to your health.
Using an eclectic blend of techniques and philosophies, our providers can help you to change some of the problematic thoughts and behaviors you may be experiencing. Short-term cognitive behavioral therapy, longer-term psychodynamic approaches, and clinical hypnosis techniques are used regularly by our providers.
Massage Therapy, Healing Touch, and Mindfulness training can help to relieve stress, increase relaxation, and lead to a feeling of greater well-being.
