We believe in using an evidenced based approach which utilizes clinical research and decades of experience for treatment of various disorders.
Here at Reverence Behavioral health services, we have a different philosophy when it comes to psychiatric services. Traditionally in mental health, there has been a stigma with patients and the practices of psychiatry as a whole. This has led to patients being ignored, not listened to, disrespected, and sometimes even neglected. We at Reverence have Reverence, meaning honor and respect, for out valuable patients and want to treat them with the love, honor, respect, and dignity that everyone should be treated with. This is why we focus on having a patient centered approach which puts the patient in the Driver’s seat and sets our various clinicians as support to get each individual to their specific mental health goals.
At Reverence behavioral health services, we believe in using an evidenced based approach which utilizes clinical research and decades of experience for treatment of various disorders. Along with medication, we strongly believe in non-medical treatment, which often involves the various modalities of Psychotherapy, better known as talk therapy. Therapies like Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety, depression and ADHD. Eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) for Trauma and PTSD. Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT) for personality disorders and other types. In addition to this, we also like to challenge our patients to make lifestyle changes, like diet, exercise, Prayer, and meditation. These changes can help to enhance the treatment plan to ultimately get our patients to their highest level of functioning and life fulfilment.
