Seattle Telehealth Psychiatry: Services Provided
We are here to listen to you and your story. We will not just pass you a prescription and bustle you from the room after five minutes. Instead, we provide up to 30 minute follow-up sessions where we examine your life’s challenges and formulate holistic solutions together.
When using medications, we practice from a foundation of using the fewest amount of medications, at the lowest dosages, for the shortest period of time.
We take the time to educate you on what you’re being prescribed, why, and the benefits and risks, so that you can make an informed decision.
Remember that we are chemical creatures. When dosed correctly, medications will not change who you are.
If unwanted effects do occur, they are often temporary and mild and usually resolve upon discontinuation of the medication. Your provider is a phone call away.
Coaching & Education
Wellness requires active management of the balance between body, mind, and spirit. We emphasize the importance of:
- Healthy diet
- Regular exercise
- Developing healthy coping skills
- Alternative & complimentary medicine

Please see our concierge fee for service model. In return for reasonable fees, you will receive timely and excellent care, the ability to call your provider directly, and same or next day appointments in many cases. Your insurance may reimburse you for part of the cost.
Research has shown similar patient outcomes between remote and in-office sessions. One major difference is that a provider cannot prescribe any controlled substances without first seeing the patient in person due to the Ryan-Haight Act of 2008. This rule has been suspended during the National Health Emergency and the DEA may promulgate new rules for remote providers in the near future.
Medications are prescribed during appointments, and your provider will ensure you have enough medication in between appointments. If you need your provider to call in medications in between appointments, there may be a fee. Controlled substances can generally not be replaced if lost/stolen, and cannot be prescribed in between appointments. Requests for refills may take up to 72 hours, so please plan accordingly.
