Psychiatry

Canvas Health professionals will ask you how you’re feeling and evaluate the best option; medications are not always the first choice for clients. Through a comprehensive assessment, Canvas Health will determine the options that make the most sense for you. Canvas Health’s experienced team of psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses are equipped to meet the needs of all populations – from early childhood to adolescent to adult. They provide evaluations for medication and medication management and provide consultations for other providers.

Counseling

At times in one’s life – whether caused by life experience or a biological imbalance– one’s perspective can become tainted, blurred or distorted. The purpose of counseling is to help you cope with the challenging situations that arise in life, and to help you live the life you’d like to create. Canvas Health does this by listening to you, supporting you, inspiring you, and referring you to whatever resources you may need. Canvas Health offers a broad range of counseling services and treatment to children and adults, including individual, family, and group therapy. Canvas Health does full screenings and assessments, and provides case management to ensure that nothing is missed.  Access to psychiatry, psychological testing, and crisis services provide clients with a comprehensive and individualized team of treatment providers should the need arise.
