Our Mission
Our Purpose
To rekindle hope and healing for our patients, recognizing that not all wounds are visible. We are dedicated to addressing common, disabling, and costly behavioral health problems through a collaborative approach.

At Charis Mental Health + Integrative Care, our mission is to holistically enhance mental health and overall well-being. Our practice delivers compassionate, patient, kind and loving care across the lifespan and course from health protection, promotion and disease prevention to diagnosis, treatment and disease management.
Our Approach
Integrated Care: We blend behavioral health services seamlessly with general and specialty medical services and alternative medicine. By treating both mental and physical needs, we aim to achieve improved patient outcomes and satisfaction at a lower cost. Our integrative psychiatric services aim to improve access to mental health care and the whole health of our patients; thus, enhance equity and focus on the patient’s overall well-being. 
Patient-Centered Decision-Making: We involve both patients and clinicians in creating personalized integrated care plans that align with patient needs, values, and preferences.Special Populations: We adapt the Collaborative Care Model to treat specific populations, ensuring equitable access to mental health services.
Technological advances utilized in our practice will afford patients ease in appointment scheduling, improved communication, eliminate burdensome, excessive and redundant paperwork and quality office visit.   

Cash-Based Care: Charis Mental Health + Integrative Care does not participate with insurance plans. Existing fee-for-service payment systems are ill aligned with and seriously inadequate to support integrated care. Often, specialized testing and treatments are deemed as “unnecessary” or “unproven.” A cash-based care allows providers to offer additional care beyond those reimbursed by many insurance plans.
