About Us

The Stepping Stones Psychiatric Care practice is primarily focused on the treatment of disorders involving the brain and central nervous system. These disorders may affect the patient’s feelings, behavior, memory, functioning, etc. We provide medication management to children, adolescents and adults suffering with emotional and mental health issues. The clinic offers nontraditional hours to decrease time away from school or work. We value the importance of education and the client’s time. We feel excess time away from work or school may cause undue stress and require use of personal time away that could better be utilized for vacation or self-care. To arrange for an appointment, contact us today.
