Child, Adolescent & Adult Outpatient Psychiatric Services

When clients face anxiety, depression, eating disorders, panic or other mental health disorders, we know that therapy alone isn't always enough. Medication can be a tool to help them return to a stable place where they can begin to heal and grow. 

Through our psychiatric services, our goal is to help clients feel more capable and confident, build resilience and cope with challenges. Our experienced psychiatric team will work collaboratively with the client and family to explore all options, monitor symptoms and behaviors and make appropriate adjustments along the way. 

Benefits of medication management:

  • Increase tolerance and coping skills for difficult thoughts and emotions
  • Reduce emotional pain
  • Reduce symptoms of mental health disorders¬†
  • Improve focus¬†
