It is difficult watching memory, mood, or behavior problems impact your loved one’s quality of life. We provide compassionate care that helps more people get back to meaningful lives. 

We deliver focused treatments for a broad range of psychiatric problems through specialized practices that include:

General psychiatry

We help patients of all ages, from young children to older adults, with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, and more. We offer medication management and individual therapy. Care is available on an outpatient basis, meaning you or your loved one will come into our facility on a recurring basis to meet with a dedicated clinician. When the appointment is over, you or your loved one will be free to go back home.

General neuropsychiatry

We help people with memory and emotional problems related to conditions such as severe traumatic and non-traumatic injuries, epilepsy, stroke, and neurodegenerative disease. We do not do specific neuropsychiatric testing. Find out more about our general neuropsychiatry expertise. 

Memory loss and dementia

We treat older adults whose daily lives are affected by memory loss due to dementia or other brain changes. Learn more about the specialized care available for memory loss and dementia. 


We help adults move past lingering symptoms of brain injuries that occur from athletic activities, falls, and motor vehicle accidents. Get more information about our services for traumatic brain injury and concussions. 

Autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, and developmental disabilities

Our team supports the ongoing needs of adults with autism spectrum disorder and other intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Find out more about our offerings for autism and developmental disabilities. 

Psychotic Disorders

We help patients over age 18 with severe and persistent mental illness, particularly schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. We are also able to provide intramuscular (IM) injections for psychotic disorders.
