Psychiatry

Our Psychiatry Services
Wellness and mental health can at times be enhanced by the use of medication .  Our psychiatrists are expert at providing psychiatric assessment to prescribe medications when necessary and to help make therapy and other wellness services more effective. Our bias, based on experience and current research, is that many times medication is not enough by itself for psychological growth to occur.  As a result, we often require a consultation with a therapist in addition to any psychiatric assessment.
PLEASE NOTE: Our psychiatrists DO NOT prescribe Suboxone or Injectable Anti-Psychotics.
