Holistic Mental Health Treatment at COPE
The addition of psychiatric services at COPE enables us to further our mission of providing holistic, wraparound mental health treatment with a team of providers dedicated to helping individuals be the best version of themselves. This means that individuals currently receiving therapy at COPE of elsewhere or who are looking for standalone psychiatric services are able to connect to our in-house psychiatrist to discuss how and if medications can be useful for their needs. We look forward to connecting with you all and being able to better serve the individuals we work with.
