Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Melanie Wylie "I am a Board Certified Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). I have worked as an APN since 2000. I evaluate, diagnose and treat adult mental health issues. As an APN I am able to prescribe medications, order lab work and develop a realistic and recovery focused treatment plan. Conditions such as depression or anxiety are medical. I firmly believe that patients need to have an active role in developing a realistic and achievable treatment plan. Mental health issues are treatable and recovery is possible"

Having visited several mental health providers over many years, I have had bad experiences with meds and such. Once I started seeing Melanie on a very regular basis, my meds as well as my disorders are finally under control. Melanie, as well as her staff has been nothing but top notch,...more

We are a place to get well We cannot put our other patients at risk if we uncover illegal unethical and safety concerns Unfortunately to protect our patients we sometimes rarely have to terminate someone's care to protect our other patients. This is a rarity and a decision we do not take lightly. We regret that someone would feel this way please understand there are many variables why someone may be upset but please note there are always mitigating factors behind a persons dissatisfaction
