Behavioral Health

Our behavioral health providers are dedicated to helping our patients achieve mental wellbeing and emotional balance. Our interdisciplinary teams work collaboratively to tailor care to your needs. When possible, we include a family care component to treatment. All sessions are personalized, respectful and strictly confidential.

 

Adult and Child Psychiatry

Our psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the assessment, diagnosis and medication evaluation of patients of all ages.

 

Psychology

Our psychologists are professionals who have earned a doctorate degree, either a Ph.D. or Psy.D . They use a variety of evaluation methodologies to find the best way to help their patients better adjust to life.

 

Counseling

Our behavioral health counselors and social workers offer therapy for patients in a variety of age groups and social situations: individual, marriage, couples, family and child. Counseling has proven to be very effective in helping people overcome difficult and stressful times.

 

We also offer substance abuse counseling.

 

Support Groups

Our knowledgeable and experienced group leaders provide a safe place to share feelings and ideas with others who truly understand what you are going through. Studies have shown that support groups can make the difference between recovery and relapse, effectively coping with chronic illnesses, and making appropriate decisions for long-term optimal health.

 

We host a variety of groups and recommend calling the Behavioral Health Department to determine which would be the best match for you.  Schedules may vary so it is always a good idea to call ahead and to register.

 

Traditional Medicine and Traditional Ways of Healing

Both Native and non-Native patients are welcome. We offer culturally compassionate care and provide a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment. Examples of optional culturally sensitive Native American medicine and healing include sweat lodge, drum, and song and dance ceremonies. Sage, sweet grass and cedar smudge are used to bless, cleanse, offer stress relief and as an aid in healing.

 

Group therapy is similar to traditional Native American talking circles in that they provide peer support. Optional treatments include traditional herbal remedies, minerals, and spiritual guidance.
