What makes Loehr Health Center different than other clinics that offer mental health services?
Many clinics focus on the emotional part of the brain to help a patient recover from, or develop strategies for, a mental health disorder. All of the providers at Loehr Health approach the body with the same philosophy—that all physical, emotional, and spiritual systems of the body are connected and work together. All systems must function in harmony for the body to be healthy.
You may be asked about your diet, physical activity, emotions, and symptoms from any of our providers—including a counselor. This is because diet and physical activity can have an affect on our brain chemistry and vice versa.
Do you prescribe medicine for mental health illnesses?
No, we do not prescribe medication for mental health illnesses.
If needed, your provider will refer you to a psychiatrist for further evaluation and treatment. The psychiatrist would then determine medical necessity and be able to prescribe medication.
Are mental health services, like counseling, covered by insurance?
No, mental health services including counseling, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, and the Mental Heath First Aid Kit are not covered by insurance at Loehr Health Center.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of counseling sessions or EMDR therapy treatments recommended for a patient will vary based on a patient’s specific diagnosis and goals.
