Let’s talk about mental health.

Direct Care Model

Payment for mental health services is coordinated directly between the provider and the patient/caregiver, with no third party payer billing to get in the way of high-quality patient care.

By not accepting insurance, we created a clinic that evolves around what is the best for the patient and sustainable by all. We’ve returned family medicine to its root values of clinical excellence for every patient.

CONFIDENTIALITY PROMISE: We understand and want to break the stigma of seeking care for mental health. Unless legally required, we will not forward medical/mental records unless the patient provides written consent. Many patients can appreciate that since we do NOT accept commercial Insurance, their data is maintained PRIVATE within our medical records system.

Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

For a full FAQ list, click here.

Do we take insurance?

No, we do not take insurance. We use a Direct Care model that works when Providers elect to work with the Patient directly rather than through a Third Party [Insurance]. So, cash payment for services is coordinated directly with the patient and medical records are not submitted for reimbursement by the provider to a Third Party.
