Mental health and Psychiatry Services in Lakewood and Winter Park
About our Services
Comprehensive Psychiatric Services
We specialize in integrative psychiatry services, emphasizing a holistic approach to mental health and well-being. Our goal is to make sure that each of our patients receives the best possible care. Drawing from the expertise of our psychiatric nurse practitioners, our philosophy centers around providing clients with personalized treatment plans tailored to their individual needs and goals.
We understand that there is no single factor that determines one’s mental health, but rather a complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social elements. Our practice is based on the principle that patients’ mental health can only improve if we attend to all of these factors.

When it comes to mental health, we don’t just focus on biological imbalances; we also consider psychological and social issues. We use a holistic approach because we want to see our patients thrive physically, mentally, and emotionally. This holistic approach involves focusing on more than just chemical imbalances, but also psychological and social factors in order to reach optimal mental wellbeing. We are committed to helping our patients find a healthier balance and improved quality of life through dedicated and compassionate care.
Effective Therapies and Techniques
We utilize integrative evidence-based therapy and conventional forms of psychiatric care. Our team uses a variety of effective methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing. These strategies help people learn to deal with difficult situations, handle stress, and strengthen their emotional fortitude.
Medication Management Expertise
Medication management is a specialty of our psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners. The most effective medications and dosages are determined after a thorough evaluation of each patient’s symptoms. Individuals can benefit from better symptom management and overall mental health thanks to this knowledge.
Personalized Treatment Plans
The path to mental health is different for everyone, which is why we personalize our care to each patient. In addition to psychotherapy, medication management, and lifestyle counseling, the psychiatric nurse practitioners on our staff are experts at developing individualized treatment regimens. We work closely with each patient in order to provide a personalized treatment plan that suits their specific needs. Treatment may include psychotherapy, medication management, lifestyle guidance and other support services. We believe that the best results come from a combination of traditional psychiatric care and therapies like cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and EMDR. Integration of mental health care includes medication management with a psychiatrist or psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner in collaboration with the patient’s therapist. This model provides the best therapeutic outcomes.
