Our Story

In 2017 Dino Santoro MD decided to start North Country Behavioral Medicine after leaving his position at CVPH Medical Center.  At first our group consisted of Dr. Santoro, Jennifer Kanaly NP and Jennifer Brennan NP.  We were soon joined by Dr. Archil Chechelashvili.  Since then we have grown by leaps and bounds.  Today our team consists of two psychiatrists, one psychiatric nurse practitioner, three physician assistants, eight therapists, a nurse, a full time TMS service and six support staff.  Also, our physical footprint has quadrupled.  We are very proud of our growth and ability to serve our North Country Community.

Our Approach

North Country Behavioral Medicine provides psychiatric services to patients of all ages. We utilize multiple treatment modalities including specific psychotherapies, medication management and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Specific psychotherapies include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psycho-dynamic Psychotherapy, and Eclectic Psychotherapies.  We also offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for patients suffering from depression that has failed to respond to medications.

Each of our providers has specific skill sets and areas of interest.  We do our best to ensure you are connected with the most appropriate provider for your particular set of challenges.
