About

Do you feel you're having hard time dealing with your daily life? Any decline in your level of functioning? PEC (Psychiatric Empowerment Center) applies to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition by American Psychiatric Association to evaluate if your signs and symptoms fit the criteria for psychiatric disorders. Treatments are client-centered and follows the FDA guidelines and the most current and reliable scientific research. Treatment plan is co-designed by PEC and you; addressing your short and long term goals, prioritizing your most urgent concerns to improve your overall health and functioning.

Tele-Psychiatric care via a secure online software is available for the clients who reside in remote locations in Colorado or if needed. E-prescribing of all psychiatric medications including control substances is utilized for your convenience.
PEC practices Humanist Philosophy. “Humanism is a philosophical and ethical stance that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence (rationalism and empiricism) over acceptance of dogma or superstition”.
