Yakima Valley Memorial Outpatient Psychiatric Services treats adult patients for a broad spectrum of mental health concerns. Appointments are held in our office using HIPAA compliant video-conference technology with our providers who are located off-site. Our staff will collaborate with the patient, the patient's primary care physician and the patient's family in identifying the causes of distress and developing a plan to resolve those problems. The staff will then help patients to carry out those plans.

Problems addressed include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Adjustment Disorders
  • Major psychiatric illness

Services we offer:

  • Psychiatric evaluation

We gladly accept referrals from within Yakima Valley Memorial. Most insurance is accepted. Call (509) 575-8307 for an appointment or referral.
