The Depot Counseling Center provides Psychiatric Services via face-to-face and Tele-psychiatry.
Psychiatrists are board-certified physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Diagnostic tools can include physical exams, laboratory tests and brain imaging scans, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scans. Patients may see a psychiatrist for depression, anxiety, depressive disorders, schizophrenia or sexual dysfunction. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication – usually in conjunction with other treatment options, such as psychotherapy – and they often work in tandem with talk therapists and counselors.
At Depot Counseling Center, we consider psychiatric medication as a back up to counseling, not as the first option. There may be some requirement regarding your continued active participation in counseling services with your assigned therapist to receive consultation/prescription services with our psychiatrist. Your therapist will specify this is applicable.
