Balanced Behavioral Health

Our mission is to create a comfortable space for individuals to take steps to improve their life, learn new skills, and leave each visit feeling like they’ve done something good for themselves and their future.

Receive a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation with a provider to create a personalized care plan that fits your unique needs. We consider every aspect of your well-being, working together to develop a treatment approach tailored just for you. Your journey to better mental health starts with a plan that understands and respects your individual needs.

We utilize the TOVA (Test Of Variables of Attention) which is a computer based test to evaluate for an attention deficit disorder or to validate a suspected diagnosis.  This is not a substitute for full psychological testing. This is used in conjunction with a diagnostic evaluation and other assessment tools when evaluation for attention disorders. 

GeneSight is a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations that may affect your outcomes with certain medications. The results of the test can show which medications may require dose adjustments, may be less likely to work, or may have an increased risk of side effects based on your genetic makeup.

Spravato (esketamine) is FDA-approved for treatment-resistant depression. If you have tried multiple treatments with little success, this innovative option may offer the relief you’ve been seeking. Our team will work with you to determine if Spravato is the right choice to help you manage and overcome depression, providing you with a renewed sense of hope and well-being.

Welcome to Balanced Behavioral Health, where we see beyond symptoms to embrace the whole person. Our nurturing environment offers care that feels anything but clinical, providing comfort and support every step of the way. Led by a team of psychiatric nurse practitioners specializing in medication management, including Spravato-assisted therapy, we’re here to guide you towards balanced mental wellness.
