Our Mission

At Western Pennsylvania Psych Care, we are committed to improving the quality of life, autonomy, and emotional wellbeing of individuals and families in the Beaver County Area. We strive to provide compassionate, recovery oriented care of the highest quality through comprehensive mental health services in a safe and supportive environment.

About Western PA Psych Care

Our experience enables us to offer effective psychiatric care, which include Psychiatric Evaluations, medication management, outpatient therapy, School Based Therapy, and IBHS home based services. We treat a wide array of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples. Our therapists have decades of experience treating the Beaver County area. 
Our board certified psychiatrist is passionate about helping patients achieve their full potential.  We understand that medications are helpful in your journey to complete health but are only one piece of the treatment. They must be used in addition to therapy, mindfulness, exercise, proper nutrition, and social connection. We strive to find the perfect balance in treatment that will make you feel like the best version of yourself you can be. 

**We do not provide medical marijuana evaluations, nor do we provide one-time evaluations for work or school fitness, legal issues, guardianship, or competency.**
