We believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. We recognize that mental health issues can be complex and multifaceted, and we are dedicated to treating the whole person, not just the symptoms.

We aim to create a world where mental health is no longer stigmatized or marginalized, but rather is embraced as an integral part of one's overall well-being.

We believe that by providing quality care that is both evidence-based and compassionate, we can empower individuals to take charge of their mental health and achieve their full potential. We are passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of those struggling with mental health issues and we strive to be a force for positive change in the field of mental healthcare.

Salary range: $225,000-$450,000

*Our target compensation is $275,000 for clinicians that are billing 33 clinical hours a week and taking their generous paid time off.

Our Telehealth Practice

We’re committed to building a comprehensive, modern psychiatric clinic delivering patient care at the highest quality standards.

  • Comprehensive support: Our team of virtual care associates, nurses, and care coordinators take on all non-clinical tasks so you can focus on providing quality patient care.
