Adult Mental Health Services

and Psychiatric Care

Psychiatric care in your neighborhood

Life can be overwhelming. Stress, worry, and sadness are feelings we all cope with at times. But when these feelings don’t go away or interfere with your daily life, it may be a sign of anxiety or depression. Your primary care doctor can usually treat these conditions. But some people may not respond to initial treatments. Others may experience additional symptoms, such as:

  • Hallucinations
  • Flashbacks
  • Obsessions

These symptoms can be part of a psychiatric illness. If you are facing these kinds of challenges, our specialty care services can help.

Our specialists work with community providers and primary care doctors to make sure patients have access to the care they need to get better. We offer many different tailored programs and services. Use the links below to explore our adult psychiatric centers and programs.

Services and Treatments

We provide expert consultations to determine which service(s) is right for you. Our approach includes:

  • Information gathering and diagnosis through a clinical evaluation. 
  • A consultation and second option. This is an opportunity to review your diagnosis and treatment plan
  • Medication management. Our team will work with you to create a plan for medications that target your symptoms.
  • Talk therapy with a trained mental health professional. This step allows us to gain a better understanding of your condition and address any concerns. 
  • Group therapy provides a supportive environment focused on learning new approaches to common challenges. We focus on topics such as stress management and difficulty sleeping.

To minimize the possibility of transmitting the virus that causes Covid-19, our services currently are delivered primarily via telehealth. In-person appointments can be arranged in some cases. In person appointments require masking of both the patient and the clinician.
