Psychiatry Services

F&CS offers psychiatry services to adults that are also receiving services in our counseling program.

Our psychiatrists work collaboratively with the clients and F&CS therapists to assess and, when needed, develop a pharmaceutical plan in response to a mental illness.

Some people benefit from medication to manage a life situation, whether it be temporary or permanent.  Please consult with your F&CS therapist if you believe a psychiatric evaluation is needed.
