Mental and physical health are deeply connected and are most successfully addressed in tandem. We are fortunate to have Best Practice counseling colocated with us, and also provide referrals to other therapists in the community. Our primary care philosophy is prevention oriented, addressing the root causes of illness, incorporating trauma resolution, nutrition, and lifestyle changes, with appropriate prescriptions. We are particularly pleased to be among the select group of providers successfully treating Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder After Streptococcal infection (PANDAS) and actively cooperate with the Anxiety and OCD Treatment Centers for these patients.
In the past few years our corner of the valley has been troubled by a high rate of teen suicides. We have dedicated hundreds of hours to local community service, leading group presentations on mental health, suicide prevention, and other safety issues, logging over 50 presentations since 2016. Our providers and staff have volunteered extensively with other community organizations, including Healthy Riverton, the Jordan Education Foundation, and the Timpanogos Emergency Response Team, addressing multiple aspects of community health. We have chosen the location of our clinic to address the specific needs of the local residents we care about.
