Services

Our goal is to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms and help empower you to find effective tools so that you can “graduate” from treatment. We also specialize in helping our patients reduce or stop using medications. Our services are available in person in our Sausalito office or by telemedicine anywhere in California.

 

We do not work with severe or acute stages of mental illness.  If acute stabilization is needed, we may refer your to another specialist or treatment center for more intensive management.

Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation

All new patients will undergo an initial evaluation (intake) in order to formulate a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan. During this first appointment, we will explore your reasons for seeking treatment and discuss your background psychiatric and medical history. We will assess various aspects of your health, including medications, diet and digestion, exercise, substance use, family history and relationships, occupation, and spiritual beliefs. In addition, we will review any lab tests including blood work that you may have had done. When appropriate, we may also consult with other clinicians on your treatment team. Based on our thorough evaluation, we will provide you with feedback and will collaborate with you to formulate an individually tailored treatment plan to address the biological, psychological, and social aspects of your health.

Policies

Payment 
Full payment is due at the time service is rendered. We accept cash and credit card. 
 
Insurance  
We do not participate in any health insurance plans or Medicare and are considered an "out of network" practice. Health insurance companies restrict the duration, frequency, diagnoses, and content of appointments, resulting in rushed sessions and compromised care. At IntraBalance Integrative Psychiatry, we pride ourselves on providing high quality, comprehensive, collaborative care and cannot do this with the restrictions imposed by insurance companies. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to receive reimbursement for the treatment you receive in our practice and we can provide you with receipts for submission to insurance. 
 
Cancellation and no-show policy 
Your appointment time is reserved for you. As a courtesy to others who are on the waiting list and to avoid being charged the full session fee, please provide at least 2 business days’ notice to cancel appointments. No shows will be charged the full session fee. In the case of illness or transportation issues, we can conduct your scheduled session by phone or video conference.
