There are clinicians and interns on staff. When the clinic is closed, there is an on-call clinician available to manage emergencies. Our clinicians hold the following licenses: M.S., CNS, LICSW, LMHC, LMFT, LCSW. 

Patients, all of whom must have their primary care provider at DotHouse Health, begin treatment with an Intake/Evaluation appointment and are then assigned to a therapist. A patient must generally meet with this therapist for at least two appointments before they may be referred for a Behavior Health medication evaluation.
