Comprehensive Psychiatry

Our therapists offer hour-long therapy sessions for patients who wish to release depression, make changes in their behavior, heal broken relationships, and process trauma. We used research-based regimens such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and some of our therapists and counselors also offer life coaching, substance abuse and addiction recovery, marriage counseling, family therapy, and more.

Medication Management

Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine therapy is an effective treatment for mood disorders. Approximately 70% of patients experience a significant reduction in symptoms – many during the first treatment. Ketamine therapy is administered intravenously, intramuscularly, or nasally. IV administration is preferable and is administered over 1-4 hours up to 10 times within a 3-week period.

NeuroStar TMS

NeuroStar TMS advanced therapy is an effective non-drug treatment for depression, anxious depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder that is FDA-approved. It is a non-invasive procedure involving transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to stimulate and target critical areas of the brain associated with mood control. As a result, neurotransmitters in the brain send signals and play a significant role in mood regulation, helping to reduce or even eliminate symptoms of treatment-resistant mental health disorders. NeuroStar TMS is a safe and easy treatment with which over 3 million people have found relief.

GeneSight® Testing

If you have been diagnosed with depression and failed at least one medication, we perform a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes how your DNA may affect your response to depression medications. The results of the test help us prescribe a more genetically optimal medication and avoid medications that may cause side effects or be less likely to work. ​

Telebehavioral Health

Many patients live very busy lives not allowing them to see their psychiatric provider when needed. Our telepsychiatric services allow for remote appointments with our providers including psychiatric evaluations, talk therapy, and medication management services. Our patients have simple, convenient access to care via a desktop computer or a mobile app. All of our clinicians have completed 26 hrs of telehealth training to maintain the highest level of excellence in providing telebehavioral health care that meets the standards of care in telehealth.

SPRAVATOTM

Spravato treatment is used to help patients struggling with depression. It is a nasal spray containing FDA-approved esketamine, a derivative of ketamine. Esketamine helps to block specific receptors in the brain that are linked with depression. It can help to improve mood and increase energy levels. Spravato treatment usually lasts around two hours, and most patients respond well to the nasal spray.
