Get to Know Our Physicians

Therapeutic Solutions provides comprehensive, team-based care to each of our patients. Through the combined efforts of therapists, psychiatrists, and licensed social workers, we provide a way for patients to reclaim their lives, one day at a time. A crucial part of our approach at Therapeutic Solutions is the use of evidence-based, scientifically-backed medical care. Mental health combines a complex group of factors, including chemical, environmental, and genetic causes.

At Therapeutic Solutions, we are committed to improving the well-being of our patients. We know that treatment options need to be a fit for you, helping you progress to a better quality of life. We also understand that effective treatment is an investment of time, effort, and money. To help make sure that our practice is the best fit for you, we will walk through a personal assessment together and determine if you’re in the right place.
