What we offer

Precision treatment, tailored to the individual

Everyone experiences depression and anxiety in their own way. That’s why we tailor our care plans to each person’s unique needs. Patients can choose psychiatry, therapy, or both.

Personalized Psychiatry

Our psychiatric providers use our PrecisionRx tool to quickly pinpoint a medication/dose combination that’s both highly effective & nonaddictive.

Clinically-Proven Therapy

Our therapists utilize an evidence-based approach to customize care for each patient and structure lesson programs built on the Unified Protocol.

Crisis Care

A first-of-its-kind national telehealth program for individuals with elevated suicide risk, Crisis Care is based on the clinically-proven Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) framework.


Informed by data, powered by technology

Our proprietary PrecisionRx tool uses machine learning to help our psychiatric providers pinpoint the most tolerable & effective medication/dose combination for each patient.
