Helping select adult residents of Citrus county Florida find balance and stability in their mental health through a holistic approach to psychiatric care so they can live their best lives! 

NEW PATIENT appointments available starting in MAY 2023 -- Saturdays only at this time

The 1st visit lasts 45 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the complexity of your situation including medical problems.  Identified concerns on prescreening forms are discussed, and provider will comprehensively assess your mental and emotional issues, as well as medical issues and medicines that can impact your concerns. At the end of the first visit, if we decide to work together, a collaborative action plan will be developed which may include medication, therapy, vitamins, herbs &/or supplements, mind &/or body exercises, worksheets & homework.

Psychiatric Medication Management

Medicine can be an integral component of psychiatric care, and is essential for more severe psychiatric conditions. Sometimes, vitamins and supplements may be recommended to support mental and emotional health. These visits are brief, focusing on medication, effectiveness and side effects.  Still an overview of life issues is needed to assess if medicines are not working as well, or if one is feeling worse because of unfortunate life circumstances. 

Untreated Adult ADHD can cost jobs, relationships, motor vehicle accidents and increased risk of substance abuse.  Learn about Adult ADHD here.

Virtual Visits

We offer virtual follow up visits through using any internet browser! This is a secure technology for telemedicine visits (telepsychiatry).  Usually, virtual visits are only available for patients in Florida who have been evaluated face-to-face. Virtual visits are charged at the same rate as face-to-face visits. FOR NOW: COVID-19 has led to some exceptions in coverage -most insurances now cover telemedicine.

Creative Expressions Therapy

Creative Expressions can help you excavate deeply hidden emotions and beliefs, through writing, art, literature, film, music, poetry and even movement. At times, logic cannot enter into the subconscious easily enough to effect change.  Creativity  bypasses logic, allowing healing to occur effortlessly.
