The Brain/Body Connection State-of-the-Art Psychiatric Treatments Appointments

Welcome to Psychiatric Associates of Southern Connecticut, PC

Our offices are located in Westport, CT and Milford, CT. We provide patients in Southern Connecticut and surrounding areas with the latest in psychiatric treatments, including expert psychopharmacology, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), and psychotherapy. We treat patients across the spectrum of psychiatric disorders, and those experiencing problems in living.

Mental Health Treatments Provided

We offer expert diagnostic and psychopharmacological evaluation and consultation, along with ongoing medication treatment. We function as a specialized referral center for other psychiatrists, clinicians, and hospitals for treatment-refractory patients, and utilize advanced techniques (targeted polypharmacy, genetic testing, etc.) for such patients.

We offer individual, group, couples, and family psychotherapy. Our therapists have particular expertise in the areas of psychodynamic psychotherapy, supportive psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming (EMDR), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and specialized group therapy for TMS patients pre and post treatment, as well as their families.

We offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) through Greenbrook TMS NeuroHealth Centers. TMS therapy is one of the most technologically advanced treatments for Depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder available. This non-invasive, outpatient therapy was FDA-cleared for Depression in 2008 and has helped thousands of patients who have not received adequate results from medicine alone. In addition, TMS treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder was FDA cleared in 2018 and we offer this as well.
