About This ClinicPrint

Total wellness is about more than physical health. We're here to help.

With support, mental health issues are highly treatable. Through compassion and understanding, our team will work with you to determine the best treatment to get you back to living your best life. We can offer guidance for family members as well so you are surrounded by support. We see you, not your illness.

  • Insomnia or too much sleep
  • Crying spells
  • Poor appetite or overeating
  • Disregard for personal appearance
  • Sad or blank looks

Who we are

Psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner

Psychiatrists and nurse practitioners are able to prescribe medications and provide ongoing medication management for diagnoses related to mental health. There may be brief psychotherapy during medication management as well as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, if needed. Medication management visits are typically 60 minutes for new patients and 20 minutes for established patients.

Psychologist

The primary service provided by psychologists is psychological testing. This testing can be done to measure intelligence quotient (IQ) or help better determine an appropriate mental health diagnosis. In addition to testing, psychologists also perform traditional psychotherapy, but do not prescribe medication. Testing appointments are typically two hours, and traditional psychotherapy appointments are usually 60 minutes.

Therapist

Traditional psychotherapy is the primary service provided by therapists. You can expect a more conversation-based visit when you see a therapist. A therapist will discuss with you the issues that brought you to the clinic but does not prescribe medication. Traditional psychotherapy appointments are typically 60 minutes.

Specialty Services

TMS

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive, non-drug program for adult patients who have experienced unsatisfactory results or intolerable side effects following traditional medication and therapy for treatment resistant major depressive disorder. Learn more here.
