The Psychiatric Center

The Psychiatric Center provides high quality, upscale mental health services. Three fully licensed and independent mental health providers see patients at the Psychiatric Center. Our goal is to provide our patients timely, respectful, quality service in a pleasant practice environment.

The Psychiatric Center can be helpful in treating most mental health problems, including:

  • Anxiety disorders, such as simple anxiety and stress, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder

  • Mood disorders, such as depression, unresolved grief and bipolar disorder

  • Attention Deficit Disorders, including hyperactive, inattentive and combined types

  • Addictions, such as alcoholism, drug dependence or compulsive internet use

  • Personality issues, such as rigid, fearful, overly dramatic or unhealthy patterns of thinking and acting, interpersonal conflicts, or perfectionism

Not everyone who benefits from counseling is diagnosed with a mental illness. The well-trained staff at the Psychiatric Center assists individuals with a number of life's stresses and conflicts that can affect anyone. For example:

  • Resolve conflicts with your partner or someone else in your life

  • Relieve anxiety or stress due to work, finances or other situations

  • Cope with major life changes, such as divorce, the death of a loved one or the loss of a job

  • Learn to manage unhealthy reactions such as road rage, irritability or disruptive behavior

  • Come to terms with a chronic or serious physical health problem such as persistent fatigue, fibromyalgia, diabetes, cancer, arthritis or pain syndromes

  • Recover from victimization or personal injury

  • Life coaching to enhance your successful life: family, career, finances, relationships, living environment, health and spirituality

  • Sleep better, if you have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep

  • Deal with challenges facing professionals including physicians, dentists, pharmacists, executives, attorneys, teachers and investors (and their spouses)

In some cases, psychotherapy can be as effective as medications such as antidepressants. However, depending on your specific situation, psychotherapy alone may not be enough to ease the symptoms of a mental health condition. You may also need medications or other treatments.

The Psychiatric Center has available the following types of psychotherapists:

  • Psychiatrists (M.D.) Medical doctors, who specialize in mental health, can prescribe medications as well as provide psychotherapy. Psychiatrists are licensed as physicians for the practice of medicine

  • Licensed professional counselors (L.P.C.) Trained psychotherapists who have a least master's degree with specific training in psychological counseling. All counselors are required to meet state certification

  • Licensed social workers (L.C.S.W.) Social workers trained in psychotherapy who help individuals deal with a variety of mental health and daily living problems. A social worker usually has a master's degree in social work and has studied sociology, mental health theory and practice, and human behavior. All L.C.S.W.’s are required to meet state certification
