Psychotherapy and Counseling

At North Country Behavioral Medicine we have therapists with a wide range of experience and areas of interest.  They can work with you to improve your symptoms, learn coping skills, and begin to enjoy life again.  Psychotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for many psychiatric conditions.

The therapies we provide include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and much more.  Please contact us to see one of our therapists or learn more about what specific treatments they can offer. 

Psychiatric Care

We have a number of psychiatric providers available to help you improve your condition utilizing a combination of medication and psychotherapy.  Our team includes psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and physician assistants.  Your provider will spend time with you. Our shortest follow up appointment will be 30 minutes in length.  We do not believe in just writing you a prescription and sending you out the door.  We want to hear what you have to say and take time to educate you about your symptoms, your treatment and other ways you can improve your condition.

Transcranial Magentic Stimulation (TMS)

Through North Country TMS we are unique in the area in offering Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).  TMS is recognized by the American Psychiatric Association, the FDA and many international societies as the next treatment choice when medications do not work. North Country TMS provides a process for you or someone you care about to be evaluated for TMS therapy. Our staff will secure an appointment quickly, will verify benefits, and submit all insurance paperwork. Click the video below to understand more about TMS therapy.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR Therapy)

At North Country Behavioral Medicine we have several clinicians trained in EMDR therapy.

EMDR therapy is an evidence-based, highly effective psychotherapy method proven to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain.  EMDR is widely considered one of the best treatments for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


North Country Behavioral Medicines offers telehealth visits which allow our patients to meet with their provider or therapist by computer, phone, or tablet.  For those who cannot do video appointments most insurance companies will allow you to have your appointment by phone.
