At Alianza, we believe in a partnership, a true alliance between mental health practitioners and their clients.
At Alianza, Elle Trapkin LCSW, Psychotherapist, and Gregory A. Haley MD, Psychiatrist work both separately and together to build that alliance and meet all of our patients’ needs.
In our office, ElleTrapkin provide psychotherapy and counseling, Dr. Greg Haley provides psychiatric evaluations and medication management.
Typically, new patients will first see Dr. Haley for an evaluation appointment to determine the best treatment options for their needs. At this appointment, he may prescribe medications or make referrals for a different type of intervention. Subsequent visits with Dr. Haley are shorter and focused on following your response to medications and answering any questions or problems you might have.
At this point, Dr. Haley will collaborate with Elle, or with the patient’s individual therapist and/or primary care physician, if the patient desires such collaboration. We highly recommend a collaborative approach, as the combination of psychotherapy and medication has proven to be the most effective form of treatment for a wide-variety of conditions.
Here at Alianza, we strive to stay up to date with new treatments and technologies to better aid our clients. This spring we invested in MacPractice, a new, comprehensive electronic medical record and practice management system.
