In the initial one-hour appointment, our clinicians start to learn about patients’ challenges, values, and goals surrounding mental health. We listen carefully to understand what brings someone to treatment so that we can tailor an individualized treatment plan. It typically takes several sessions to complete an assessment, clarify diagnoses, and present professional recommendations.
Psychiatric medication can be an important tool in treating the symptoms of mental illness. Our psychiatrists stay up to date on the best practices for safe and effective prescribing. We explain medication recommendations clearly and work with patients to minimize side effects.
Psychotherapy is typically a weekly therapeutic conversation designed to increase the client’s capacity to meet life’s challenges. All our providers are trained in multiple psychotherapy techniques that identify obstacles and build on personal strengths. Some of these approaches include psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based psychotherapy. We choose methods that suit each patient’s preferences and needs.
Couples and family therapy
Healthy relationships and family dynamics are central to our well-being. We work with families and partners to increase understanding, resolve conflicts, improve communication, and deepen connections.
Second opinion consultation
Given the nuances of mental health treatment, it can be beneficial to get a second opinion to clarify diagnoses and identify new treatment possibilities. Our providers can meet with you to review your treatment history and coordinate with your care team to provide fresh recommendations.
