COMPREHENSIVE PSYCHIATRY

We offer ­­­­­­­­­a full range of mental health care: from psychiatric evaluations to medication management, talk therapy, counseling, and life-coaching.

We harness the power of neuroplasticity to address the root cause of your imbalance.

Because our brains are in a constant state of transformation, reorganizing synaptic connections and growing, full healing of emotional trauma is absolutely possible. Our patients work with therapists to acquire different perspectives and new thought patterns to process their trauma and subsequent life events in a healthy manner.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

– Brene Brown

Full Range of Services 

We implement integrative psychotherapy by providing psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and talk therapy.

Psychiatric Evaluations 

We perform a full diagnostic evaluation with all of our new patients. During this appointment, either our psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner will review the patient’s symptoms, medication list, and previous psychiatric records (if any exist). After the provider forms a diagnosis and a broad overview of the patient’s situation, he or she will work with the patient to establish a comprehensive treatment plan. This appointment usually last about 40 to 60 minutes and is the foundation for the integrated holistic healing.

Medication Management

Medication management appointments are a chance for providers and patients to discuss medication use and efficacy so that the provider can adjust or change doses as needed and refill prescriptions. These sessions are conducted by a psychiatric nurse practitioner or a psychiatrist and are one of the facets of the comprehensive treatment plan. While we help patients stabilize their internal landscape with the use of medication, these medication management appointments are also used to create and implement a strategy of transition from medication dependency to deep holistic healing.

Therapy

Our therapists who offer hour-long therapy sessions for patients who wish to make changes in their behavior, heal broken relationships, and process trauma. We use research-based regimens such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

In addition to psychotherapy, we offer hour-long counseling sessions, focusing on the following areas:

  • Trauma
  • Substance Abuse / Addiction
  • Family Therapy
  • Marriage Counseling
  • Life Coaching

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy utilizes the synaptogenic power of ketamine to achieve rapid progress in talk therapy. Because ketamine helps break down emotional barriers, it allows therapists and patients to accomplish a lot of work in a small amount of time.

Through regular meetings during ketamine therapy, the patient is able to process the insights they gain during the infusion with the therapist, addressing the root cause of emotional trauma. 

FAQs

Low dose ketamine has minimal side-effects including nausea, slight headache, anxiety, slightly increased heart hate or blood pressure, and drowsiness.

Depending on your diagnosis, we typically recommend 6-10 treatments over 2-3 weeks to start. After that, subsequent treatments may be required on an as-needed basis.

Many medicines like antibiotics, pain medicines, anesthetics along with Ketamine are used with both humans and animals.

Yes. Please review the FDA’s website  for more information.

Ketamine was created in 1963 and approved by the FDA in 1970. In order to approve a medication for a specific use, the FDA conducts trials to determine if it is safe and effective without significant side-effects. Once an older medication is approved it is very rare for drug companies to provide all the necessary information and research required to put the medication “on label” for specific conditions. Please review the FDA’s website for further information.

A nasal form of ketamine is in the last phase of the FDA approval process. However, it is our belief that the nasal route is significantly less effective than an IV route of administration. Ketamine infusions provide a consistent and reliable serum level that we can easily titrate to optimize safety and outcome. Many medical professionals believe nasal ketamine will not become a widely prescribed medication and will only be prescribed for use within a clinic.
