Psychiatric Evaluation/ assessments is a process of information gathering about a person within a mental health service, with the purpose of making a diagnosis for appropriate management of symptoms. The assessment is usually the first stage of a treatment process. The standard psychiatric history consists of biographical data (name, age, marital and family contact details, occupation, and first language), the presenting complaint (an account of the onset, nature and development of the individual’s current difficulties) and personal history (including birth complications, childhood development, parental care in childhood, educational and employment history, relationship and marital history, and criminal background).
A mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. The goal of treatment is to improve a patient’s comfort and quality of life, and to do so with compassion and precision. We want to help you feel better and keep you feeling better. Prescribed medications play a key role in the treatment of co-occurring disorders. They can reduce symptoms and prevent relapses of a psychiatric disorder.
Even the strongest among us can feel lost, uncertain, misplaced, or unhappy at times.

Our goal is to provide high-quality care, working collaboratively with each client.
Are you looking for help with relational conflicts, sex therapy, co-parenting, etc.?
As a couple we create a container which holds all our hopes, fears and desires. When a relationship works, it leads to an immensely fulfilling life. However, as many of us find out, it is not always like that. We may realize that the friendship is not what we expected. Our chosen partner is not quite the person we imagined them to be. The container of our couple starts to feel less secure.
