Serving Traverse City and Northern Michigan

Effective 6/6/24 we have transitioned to a new EMR called Simple Practice.

“When we learn how to become resilient we learn how to embrace the beautifully broad spectrum of the human experience.”

Treatment philosophy

A person should be treated holistically – mind, body and spirit.  Our treatment involves lifestyle changes, therapy and medication management.  We believe in finding the right medication and right dosage.  Rather than overmedicating you, we aim to help you to develop coping strategies and build resilience to overcome what life throws at you.

Start your journey to a better tomorrow.
