"Most of our patients have several common characteristics, such as: 1) Conventional psychiatry has failed them and they want a doctor that thinks outside the box; 2) They are not in the midst of an urgent mental health crisis and can wait a few days or weeks to be seen; 3) They want more time with a mental health provider; 4) They're fairly stabilized and wanting to go deeper into healing their mental health issues; 5) They have residual symptoms after long term medication use; 6) They want to consider alternatives to medication; and 7) They don't depend on insurance to cover the cost of their mental health treatment."
