Finding a provider

There are a number of local organizations and private practitioners that provide outpatient psychiatry and/or psychotherapy. Often the best place to start, if you are insured, is your insurance's website or customer service line. They can confirm active providers within your plan.

 

You may also contact my affiliate agency, for providers in Orange, Durham or Wake counties: Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare, PLLC.
