Creating A Continuity of Mental Healthcare

We currently accept Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare & BCBS PPO, as well as self-pay

At Carencia, we’re passionate about treating the whole person, not just a set of symptoms.

Carencia understands mental health is a complex topic rooted in neurobiology, but it manifests in our lives through emotional experiences, personal identity, and relationships. This is why we value the therapeutic relationship, offer psychotherapy, and provide medically informed treatment options. Our ultimate goal is fitting mental healthcare into the larger scope of an individual’s healthcare needs.

Our practice is a warm, welcoming environment that invites discussion and acts as a safe space for those we serve. We believe that prioritizing mental healthcare is a cornerstone of leading a healthy and happy life, and we can’t wait to learn how we can empower you through attentive and mindful care.

Our Mental Healthcare Approach

Mental health issues affect roughly 1 in 5 adults in America, but the majority of those millions never seek treatment.

Mental healthcare has been stigmatized for decades, but Carencia exists to reshape the narrative around psychiatric services and provide the care individuals & their loved ones need to lead fulfilling lives.

We provide adults from all walks of life with a safe space in which they can have their comprehensive mental healthcare needs met.

In addition to individuals, we are proud to be a trusted partner for leading businesses with employee assistance programs.

To provide mental healthcare to all who need it, we offer secure telemedicine visits to all of our clients via a video-conferencing application.

If we do not provide a treatment that is effective for your unique needs, we have a trusted network of referral sources who are sure to provide exactly what is needed.

Psychotherapy Services

A foundational piece of Carencia’s continuity of mental healthcare is therapy.

Taking a humanistic approach to therapy means analyzing and treating the entire person, including their biology, behaviors, and background.

Therapy at Carencia goes far beyond discussion. Mental health issues are often stigmatized, but they are much more similar to physical health that most think.

Considering the neurological aspect of mental health alongside the emotional, we work towards positive changes in brain chemistry that ultimately prove lasting results for our clients.

We treat individuals new to therapy and also receive referrals from other mental healthcare practices. We are passionate about acting as a partner, not a competitor, in order to foster a community that truly prioritizes mental healthcare.

Psychiatric Medication Management

Treating the whole person and taking a humanistic approach to mental healthcare means utilizing traditional healthcare strategies, like medication, comprehensive lab workup, and genetic testing when indicated.

While we do provide psychiatric medication management services to those not currently engaging with Carencia for psychotherapy, providing a single client with continuity of mental healthcare does make a difference. Our medically-informed services, in concert with psychotherapy, allow us to address mental health from all angles.

By treating mental health scientifically, like all other areas of healthcare, we’re working to remove stigmas and treat communities who have never pursued mental healthcare before.
