White Pine Mental Health & Wellness
Life is busy. Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses make it even harder to manage. To bring you the best possible psychiatric care in the most convenient way, we offer appointments through telepsychiatry. Basically, we're an online psychiatry office for patients anywhere in Idaho or Alabama.
White Pine Mental Health & Wellness specializes in a wide range of psychiatric services to get patients feeling healthier than ever before. And while we work hard to offer the most current, evidence-based, and comprehensive treatments available to help you feel better, we also focus on preventative strategies to ensure you stay better for longer.
Our ultimate goal is to address the individual as a whole and to consider all the variables that cause you to feel the way you do.
Sometimes that means performing lab work to evaluate for general medical conditions that cause or worsen symptoms. Sometimes that means addressing sleep hygiene, physical fitness efforts, and dietary choices. Sometimes that means addressing the situational stressors that may or may not be within our control. Nevertheless, there is always something that can be done to address these proactively and get you back on track!
We believe that better understanding of mental health has the power to change the world. That might sound bold, but each person that better understands mental health - their own or others' - is a person that is able to put more good into the world.
We want to empower each of our patients to understand their own mental health so they can put their best into the world. We also want to empower other professionals - medical providers, teachers, pastors - to provide the best care to those they serve. So we integrate education into each patient visit, and Kathryn regularly speaks at educational events for professionals.
Medication is not always the answer, but for many, it helps bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be!
We enthusiastically combine psychotherapy, healthy diet, appropriate exercise, nutraceuticals, key vitamins and amino acids, as well as potentially utilizing medications. As always, treatment decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, as no two patients are exactly alike.
Additionally, with your permission, we collaborate with your other care providers to ensure continuity of care and have a network of excellent referral sources for counseling and other care.
In addition to comprehensive psychiatric lab work, we offer genetic testing through GeneSight and Tempus to guide your treatment.
Speak to us about analyzing your DNA to better guide medication selection as well as to determine if any other genetic factors may be contributing to your symptoms.
