Welcome to Psychiatry Associates, a warm and caring place where we provide expert psychiatric care. We value each individual who visits our office and are committed to tailoring a treatment plan to meet every person’s needs. Working outside the constraints of managed care, our practice is designed to allow us the necessary time to thoroughly get to know you or your loved one.
Although we treat some people with either psychotherapy or medication alone (or in conjunction with your therapist), many of our patients are treated by us with a combination of therapy and medication. Combining the two treatments often works best. It also allows us to be continuously sensitive to sometimes subtle but often vital details, that may be overlooked when a psychiatrist does only brief medication visits. In this manner, safe, skilled, quality care can be optimally delivered. Our awareness of the mind/body interplay gives your treatment a distinct advantage. We truly get to know you and your special needs.
We understand that initiating psychiatric treatment can seem overwhelming. You may be in enormous emotional pain right now and need immediate help. You may be struggling with the “stigma” of pursuing mental health treatment and require support with that. Whatever the issue may be, we are here to help. We treat each person with the dignity and respect they deserve.
We realize your treatment experience begins when you first contact our caring and dedicated staff, and we are proud of our team. Our office is located in an attractive, warm, private Victorian home, conveniently located in Metuchen, New Jersey. We have years of experience and are highly skilled at treating a wide spectrum of psychiatric disorders and life problems. We offer so much more as well. We look forward to meeting you to begin your road to recovery and well-being.
