Welcome to Nature Coast Psychiatry
Welcome to Nature Coast Psychiatry. We are happy to offer you a safe space for mental health services in Citrus County. Mental health and its care is often so stigmatized that you might feel hesitant to reach out. Please know that it is not only ok to seek help for your mental health - but it can improve your overall wellness and quality of life. We all could benefit from help sometimes. At Nature Coast Psychiatry we practice Trauma-Informed, Holistic, Patient-Centered care - in other words, we are here for you - will provide services specialized to you and your needs.
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.
Mindfulness is about finding balance in the present and had a variety of health benefits. Mindfulness has been shown to aid in repairing white and gray matter, aiding in the formation of new (or healing) neuropathways which directly impacts oue mental and physical health, Mindfulness Meditation increases awareness of sensations and feelings, but at a distance. Mindfulness eases suffering in everyday life.

Meet Our Providers
We offer virtual follow up visits through https://doxy.me/naturecoast 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.
While each of us are our own compilation of mental health variables, there are some unifying principles, theories, and building blocks that can positively affect (almost) everyone's mental health.
