    Our Approach to Care

    Our team of psychiatric providers is here to both educate and support individuals as they work with PBH therapy services on their treatment plans. In some instances our providers will engage in more formalized therapy if necessary.

    Our psychiatric providers are all board certified and adhere to best practices in psychiatry. We believe in a holistic and collaborative approach to patient care and work closely with a patient’s primary care provider to assure continuity of care.

      Being Seen in the Medical Dept

      To be seen by the PBH medical department requires a referral for care. This may come from an individual’s PCP or internally from a PBH therapist.

      If you have questions on whether care in our department would be a good fit for you, please call 360-457-0431 and ask for the Access Coordinator.
