About

Congratulations on starting your mental health journey. You have made the admirable decision to address your challenges, but you may have already found a whole new set of obstacles in store. Limited in-network, affordable, or competent mental health providers, initial appointment wait times of up to two months, confusing insurance policies, never ending paperwork, a looming fear of being judged, rushed, or dismissed; limited treatment options, unreliable follow-up care, missed refills, and perhaps even front office staff unequipped to handle the complexities of your situation – just to name a few.
Evolve recognizes this uphill battle and has curated a patient experience to surpass expectations. Our mobile-responsive team makes the electronic intake a breeze and readily answers common insurance and clinical questions. Experts identify your needs with insight-oriented interviewing and maintain a nonjudgmental and educational approach.
Experience being in the captain’s seat to make your treatment decisions but with our team navigating through it all. If you want to become the version of yourself you have always envisioned, visit our website today and get on the fast track to be seen within the next two weeks! Our office will be in touch within 24 hours.
