Because of the highly individualized nature of care, new patients are seen on a very limited basis. Please call to discuss your scheduling needs. PLEASE NOTE: This is not an emergency or urgent mental health care facility: If you have a life-threatening or very urgent mental health concern, please go to your nearest hospital Emergency Department.
COVID19 Pandemic: We are currently conducting health care services virtually, using telemedicine. To use telemedicine services you need access to the internet and a private place for your session. Call the Clinical Practice Assistant for information about how to connect during your next scheduled visit.
HOLIDAY OFFICE HOURS: The office will be closed during major U.S. Holidays and during some academic school year holidays, for example, between Christmas and New Year's Day holidays, on Mardi Gras, on July 4th, Labor Day, and on Thanksgiving and the following Friday. Other closings will be announced as needed.
INCLEMENT WEATHER: Stay posted and follow your own best judgment for the area where you live. We generally close the office when area schools or state or federal buildings close for inclement conditions or if local conditions include power outages or street flooding. We will contact patients for subsequent hours or closings if we need to. Call the Clinical Practice Assistant or text us as usual.
