Mental Health Services & Counseling Q & A

When should I seek treatment for a mental health disorder?

If you experience symptoms of a mental health disorder that begin to interfere with your quality of life, it’s important that you schedule a diagnostic evaluation as soon as possible.

If left untreated, conditions like anxiety and depression can worsen and increase your risk for self-harming behaviors or suicidal thoughts or actions.

Common signs that may indicate you have a mental health condition include:

  • Sadness
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Excessive worry and anxiety
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Unexplained weight changes
  • Loss of interest in usual activities

Children with mental health issues may also begin acting out at home and school or demonstrate changes in their mood or behavior.

What services are available?

The Southwest Family Physicians mental health professionals provide patient-focused services to address common mental health disorders and behavioral issues in children and adults.

Our skilled team offers on-site diagnostic screenings to better understand the root cause of your symptoms and creates custom treatment plans that focus on improving and stabilizing your mental health.

Mental health counselors, Simone Crothers, LPC, and Scarlet Graham, LPC, are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating anxiety and depression. They also offer comprehensive care for other behavioral disorders, including resources for learning to cope with your symptoms. Kara Wilcox, PA-C and Denyse Collins, PMHNP, offer psychiatric care including assessment, diagnosing, and prescribing.

What treatments are available for mental health issues?

Our Southwest Family Physicians counseling team works closely with the primary care team to determine which treatment is best for you. In many cases, we combine talk or behavioral therapy with medications to keep your symptoms well-controlled.

The strong partnership between the counselors and primary care providers ensures you have the highest level of consistent care. Your Southwest Family Physicians team works closely with you to monitor how effective treatment is and learn what other resources would help improve your quality of life.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Southwest Family Physicians also offers on-site hypnotherapy sessions with our licensed and experienced hypnotherapist, Cynthia Wisehart, CHt, CLC. Hypnotherapy involves guided hypnosis to help you achieve a meditative state of mind and address subconscious issues around trauma, phobia and anxiety. During hypnotherapy, you are aware and in control of your physical body at all times. The treatment can be beneficial for improving your sleep quality and helping you break habits, like emotional eating, smoking and drug use. 

While the symptoms of a mental health disorder can feel overwhelming, they are manageable with the right care plan.

If you or members of your family are experiencing symptoms of a mental health disorder, schedule an evaluation today, by phone or using the online booking feature.
