VA Community Care Network

Authorized to offer veterans quality mental health services outside of the VA, we treat those struggling with PTSD, mental health, relationship issues, anxiety, and role transitioning. 

Let’s Talk About Mental Health

The VA has approved Dr. Sara Waterbury, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, to deliver behavioral and mental health services to veterans of the U.S. Military. As a result, treatment at Southern Comfort Mental Health is covered by the VA through Optum.

“Your Mental and Emotional well-being is worth fighting for. I’d be honored to help you on your journey.”

Mental Health Services are part of Southern Comfort Health, which started as a novel clinic offering Direct Primary Care (DPC) services, in Fort Pierce, Florida. Both divisions focus on the “whole patient,” with a business model that addresses a lot of problems with the healthcare system including unpredictable costs, lack of coordinated care, and limitations that affect the relationship with providers.
