 What We Do

We provide psychiatric care to patients experiencing mental health illness within the context of a neurological disorder. These neurological issues may include sleep disorders, seizure disorders (like epilepsy) or movement disorders (like Parkinson’s or functional movement disorders). Approaches to treatment will vary by disorder and can range in duration from one-time consultation to short-term follow-up. Our care is provided primarily in outpatient settings but also in inpatient settings where we collaborate with Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry to provide mental health support to patients undergoing complex medical or surgical interventions.
