I have been to so many places in my lifetime for my mental health and have never found a place like lighthouse!! The people I have interacted with especially my therapist have changed my life in such an amazing way. I will never go anywhere else and will never stop seeing them even when I’m doing good because I will never stop trying to improve my mental health. I’m not embarrassed to say we all need help and this is the place I highly recommend, coming from a person who’s been in therapy since the age of 9 years and now in my 40’s I’d consider myself some what of an expert on mental health facilities and providers!!! I recommend lighthouse to any and everyone looking for help, they are the exception to the rule and truly care about their patients!
To begin, I’m diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder II and Depression. Throughout the years, I have been to many different psychiatrists. I tend to stay with my current provider for as long as possible, for fear of having to explain my circumstances again or start all over in terms of my treatment. After being a patient of my previous psychiatrist for a little over two years, I decided that it was time to find another. I started to feel like just a number to my psychiatrist, and no longer a human being. This prompted me to search for someone and somewhere new. I came across Lighthouse Psychiatry via Google and I was impressed by the many positive reviews, and decided to try them out. I can honestly say that my very first interaction with this office was exceptional. The support staff are sympathetic, professional, and responsive. I felt like I was actually being heard, able to express my concerns with no judgment, and expressed a sensation that I have never felt with a psychiatrist before: relief. If you’re searching for a psychiatric office that will make you feel truly helped and relieved, then I would highly recommend Lighthouse Psychiatry.
After months of trying other providers and clinics I finally was happy to find a place where I actually feel heard. Both my therapist and psychiatrist have been very professional and compassionate and so far have hit the nail on the issues i need to work through and they are helping me very well throughout the process. Everyone on the team has been super friendly and understanding. Do give them a call and they will help you find the right person to talk to!
