Quality Behavioral Health Care

Covered by Insurance
Quick Access to Care

We provide behavioral health services, including consultations, psychiatric treatment with medications, psychotherapy, couples therapy and family therapy. In order to make high quality behavioral health care available to as many people as possible, we have contracted with most of the insurance companies covering behavioral health care in the Santa Barbara area.

We have developed administrative practices to relieve patients of the burden of clarifying insurance eligibility, benefits and out of pocket costs, enabling patients to get excellent service quickly and affordably, while being responsible only for their co-payments and insurance deductibles.

Aetna
Anthem Blue Cross
Beacon
College Health IPA (CHIPA)
Blue Shield MHSA
ComPsyc
