Behavioral Health Staff

Counseling, psychiatry and medication management for children, adolescents and adults.

 

The Shingle Springs Behavioral Health Department and prevention services are integral components of our commitment to provide comprehensive care to clients. This level of care is achieved through an integrated behavioral health approach, which is interdisciplinary teamwork and collaboration among multiple in-house and community partners to provide wrap-around services to each client. This interconnectedness is designed in recognition of the complexity of each individual, with the understanding that one’s own journey toward achieving health and wellness cannot be had without addressing the person as a whole.

 

Our Behavioral Health Department is comprised of behavioral health clinicians, social worker and psychiatric staff who possess the extensive experience and specialized training to best help you deal with the changes, challenges, and crises of life. While many of these things are inevitable, we will work together to equip you with the knowledge and skills to help navigate through these obstacles in a safe, productive, and healthy manner. Developing confidence and competency is an ever-evolving process, but you don’t have to do it alone.
