NP Psychiatry has offered telepsychiatry (telemedicine) appointments for the same rate as in person visits on our centralized text messaging platform since 2019.
Your first appointment will entail a comprehensive evaluation up to 90 minutes in duration. Our goal is to create a narrative of the concerns having you reach out for care, including the formation of a treatment plan to address these concerns.
Our practice offers medication services with and without therapy. We routinely partner with outside therapists and healthcare providers to ensure continuity in your care.
While medication and therapy can both contribute toward mental health, mental health is comprised of more than just these two pieces. Consultations are beneficial in a variety of circumstances.
Care Coordination Services
Mental health is the result of more than the sum of our parts. Even with ideal finances, perfect health, and no employment, legal or relationship difficulties, one does not necessarily achieve relief from feelings like loneliness, anger and depression.
