Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of patients do you treat?

Daybreak Psychiatry offers cognitive behavioral therapy (anxiety and mood disorders) to individual adults and couples.

Do you always prescribe medication? What if I’m looking for non-medical interventions?

Every treatment plan is collaborative and geared toward the specific needs and goals of the patient, who is included in the decision-making process from the beginning. In certain disorders, where it has been proven that medication is highly effective, it will most likely be recommended. But each plan is multifaceted, incorporating non-medical interventions such as psychotherapy, education, coping strategies, and methods of self-care.

What happens in the first appointment?

In the first appointment, we begin with a full psychiatric exam, which includes an evaluation of the patient’s psychological status, as well as a social, family, and developmental history. We then discuss physical contributors. The goal of the initial meeting is to formulate a differential diagnosis and explore various treatment options.

Do you accept insurance?

While Daybreak Psychiatry does not accept insurance, patients are provided with a bill to submit for reimbursement from their insurance providers, should they wish to do so. We recommend contacting one’s insurance company to review out-of-network coverage if this is an important consideration.
