HISTORY & MISSION
In addressing a person's mental illness, taking a biopsychosocial approach provides a guideline to targeting the multifactorial causes of psychiatric disorders. We hope to target the biological component of this approach by providing our clients with neuromodulation therapy as well as other neurostimulation techniques. After spending many years working to understand how best to provide patient care as well as building a strong therapeutic alliance with our clients, we have come to understand the limitations of certain psychiatric treatments as well as an understanding that each individual's needs vary in many ways. We hope to provide a valuable service of offering neurologically focused treatment to supplement psychotropic medications as well as psychotherapy. These biological treatments are evidenced based and have statistically been shown to be superior to medication treatment of certain psychiatric disorders.
