Psychiatry

IPGS focuses on “whole person” health, and psychiatric diagnosis and treatment of emotional, behavioral, and developmental disorders are always reviewed in relation to physical, genetic, environmental, social, cognitive (thinking), emotional and educational factors affected. We want your treatment plan to line up with your personal wellness goals. People seek therapy for a multitude of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma to dealing with depression or anxiety to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. We know that well-being is not just physical health, diet, and exercise. Emotional and mental challenges can also play a key role in your overall health.

That’s why the professionals at IPGS take more than solely your psychiatric diagnosis into consideration with our integrated treatment plans. To give you the building blocks you need to work through your symptoms and cope with ongoing circumstances, we approach your challenges from multiple angles to create a comprehensive plan that truly caters to your individual needs and well-being. We seek to provide attention to both bodily medical needs and your mind to strike a balance that helps you reach your personal goals.

At IPGS, we specialize in creating comprehensive “whole person” treatment plans for a wide range of behavioral, personality, emotional, and developmental disorders. To properly create a plan for any disorder or desire for personal improvement, we offer a wide range of services to each of our patients, including:

  • An initial assessment in which we gather crucial information on your medical history, personal life, social and familial history, and general lifestyle to establish your current needs and concerns regarding your well-being.
  • A psychiatric evaluation allows providers to better understand how you are currently operating under your present conditions, using an in-depth series of questions.
  • Medication management for those who need it, along with an assessment of how well a prescribed medication is working for you on an individual basis and how it works with the rest of the integrated wellness plan created by your providers.
  • Integrated care coordination allows us to look after every aspect of your well-being by providing information between our psychiatric, therapeutic, medical, and care management teams and setting up occasional care activities for you to participate in.

These services allow us to take a look at the bigger picture when it comes to your personal wellness, which we believe is imperative for creating a lifestyle and health plan that truly works for you in the long run. Each plan is personalized based on information gathered by these services because we believe that every treatment should be as unique as the person it’s designed for.

We also focus on providing accessibility to all of our clients throughout Arizona. From our office in Tempe, we provide crucial psychiatric services to people throughout Maricopa County. Our mobile care services allow us to provide care to those individuals in group-homes, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities throughout the Valley.

If you’d like to learn more about our “whole person” treatment methods or wish to see what IPGS has to offer you, contact us today. Our caring professionals can give you a better understanding of what our integrated treatment plans are normally like while providing you with important resources that you can access on your own for a better understanding of mental health and how it impacts your overall well-being. Regardless of what your goals might be, we’re here to help you reach them in a healthy and holistic way.

Psychiatrists treat people of any age for many mental health related conditions, including:

Depression

Depression is more than just feeling down or having a bad day. When a sad mood lasts for a long time and interferes with normal, everyday functioning, you may be depressed. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working.

Anxiety

Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear.

PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event.

OCD

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic, and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and/or behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder (formerly called manic-depressive illness or manic depression) is a mental disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, concentration, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.

Personality Disorders

Borderline personality disorder is an illness marked by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, self-image, and behavior. These symptoms often result in impulsive actions and problems in relationships.

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality, which causes significant distress for the individual, their family members, and friends.

Substance Abuse and Addiction

Did you know that addiction to drugs or alcohol is a mental illness? Substance use disorder changes normal desires and priorities. It changes normal behaviors and interferes with the ability to work, go to school, and to have good relationships with friends and family.
