Compassionate, Collaborative Care

Our mental health and addiction services team includes experienced caregivers who work collaboratively to deliver comprehensive care.

Our team members work closely with your primary care doctor and other providers to deliver a continuum of care. Our providers include:

  • Marriage and family therapists – Postgraduate-level mental health professionals who are licensed to diagnose and treat mental health and substance-use conditions. Marriage and family therapists focus on helping people manage their symptoms and interactions within their existing environment.
  • Occupational therapists – Professionals who assess and evaluate basic living skills and abilities of people with mental health conditions. They determine the skills, support and environmental modifications that are needed to promote independent living.
  • Psychiatrists – Medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating mental health and addiction conditions, including prescribing and managing medications. Our psychiatrists oversee treatment and meet regularly with individuals to prescribe and monitor medication, evaluate progress and adjust treatment as needed.
  • Psychologists – Licensed, doctorate-level professionals who work closely with the treatment team to provide assessments, develop treatment plans and oversee treatment.
  • Social workers – Licensed clinical social workers who specialize in psychotherapy and counseling. Our social workers provide counseling, education, support for individuals and their family members, and assist individuals with external mental health resources.
  • Specialized nurses and clinical staff – Psychiatric registered nurses provide an integrated approach to care, with special expertise in caring for those with severe or complex mental health and substance use disorders. They’re assisted by licensed vocational nurses (LVNs), nursing technicians or aides (CNAs) and other caregivers.
  • Therapists in training – Our care team includes trainees of varied backgrounds who gain experience working in a collaborative treatment environment while receiving training by qualified supervisors. Trainees can include Marriage and Family Therapist interns, Occupational Therapy Interns, Social Work interns, and Psychology practicum students, and postdoctoral fellows.
