The philosophy of Crescent City Psychiatric recognizes that individuals with mental health disorders experience challenges with physical, emotional, and social abilities that affect all areas of life function. We feel that individuals diagnosed with mental health disorders or individuals experiencing symptoms of an undiagnosed mental health disorder have the ability to attain the highest quality of life.
Our mission is to provide a safe, trusted environment for each individual client regardless of gender, race, culture, social group, or spiritual belief. We value treating each client with professionalism, compassion, and without judgment. We strive to empower clients to attain self-fulfillment, and encourage these clients to reach out to others who may be struggling with their own mental well-being. We truly believe that once a client reaches self-actualization, the client will be inspired to empower others within their family, social network, or community. We believe this ongoing empowerment within the community is the key to sustained induvial joy and inner peace for both our clients and our society as a whole.
Our practice focuses on evaluating and treating adults in the outpatient setting by creating individualized treatment plans to meet each individual client's needs . Each treatment plan is created by thoroughly assessing one's medical, social, and mental health history. Recent and past stressors are thoroughly assessed, risk and benefits of past and current medications are explored, and treatment options are presented during each provider-client encounter. Our providers are certified and licensed in psychiatric-mental health, and are continuously educated in psychopharmacology to ensure the latest evidence based practice guidelines are being utilized. Our providers are also knowledgeable of mental health services in the area that may be best suited for our clients, and will make referrals if necessary.
