We are mental health professionals committed to improving access to high quality mental health care. Our objective is to make our services more available to those in need of high quality mental health care. We aim to serve not only those in rural areas, but be available to all regions for those who would prefer to make use of the privacy, security and convenience of a telehealth consultation.

Do you need a psychiatric evaluation or an online mental health evaluation? With the rapidly improved technology of tele-medicine, tele-mental health services are easily available to individuals and organizations equipped with only a typical computer or smartphone and a high speed internet connection.

Trying to find a psychiatrist or therapist has become that much easier for you with BlueSky Telepsych.

Why should I choose your practice?

THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP

At BlueSky, we approach every patient as an individual, with empathy and understanding. We believe strongly in the therapeutic relationship to help clients work towards their goals.

SCREENING FOR GENERAL MEDICAL CAUSES

Our evaluations often include laboratory or other screening procedures to rule out general medical causes.

ALL EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS SHOULD BE EXPLORED

We believe that psychotropic medications and psychotherapy are a mainstay in the treatment of mental illness, but we are constantly learning about effective non-pharmacological methods as well. While non-pharmacological approaches may not work for every patient, we believe all effective treatments should be explored.

ALTERNATIVE GUIDANCE

Where appropriate, we may offer consultation on evidence-based alternative therapies and nutritional guidance.
