GARDENIA COVE MENTAL HEALTH, P.C.
To cultivate flourishing individuals by improving mental health and creating genuine wellbeing.
EVALUATION AND CONSULTATION SESSION
The first appointment is a consultation and is meant to determine whether an ongoing treatment relationship fits your needs. If mutually agreed upon, follow up sessions can be scheduled and the formal treatment relationship will commence. Dr. Williams and Rachel Liner, NP primarily see adults from ages 18 and older for consultation, psychotherapy, and medication management.
Dr. Williams also provides psychiatric evaluations required for certain surgeries. Please call our office for more details.
Our clinicians have extensive experience in the medication management of psychiatric disease. While not everyone will benefit from or desire to use medication as a part of their treatment plan, at times medication can be extremely helpful in alleviating psychological distress.
Dr. Williams is a firm believer that medication should only be used when necessary and maintained at the lowest doses possible to achieve successful results.
INDIVIDUAL, COUPLES, AND FAMILY
Our providers have knowledge and experience in supportive psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational enhancement therapy, and a variety of other psychotherapeutic techniques.
We now offer individual Walk & Talk Therapy. Limited spots are available. Call our office for more details or to reserve your spot!
TRANS-CRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION
For patients with medication-resistant depression, or those trying to avoid medications, we now offer trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS is a safe, FDA-approved, non-drug treatment for severe depression. For patients who have tried multiple medications, it is usually covered by insurance companies for severe depression.
If you would like to see if you are appropriate for TMS or learn more information about out TMS program, please call our office or ask your provider about it at your next visit.
Working in groups is a great way to improve wellbeing, learning together and from each other. Due to overwhelmingly positive patient feedback, we have expanded our group program. Each group lasts one hour. At this time our groups are open which means that new member can join whenever they would like and the groups do not end on a particular date.
DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY
A life-changing therapy which teaches emotion regulation, living in the moment, healthy stress management and coping skills, and improved relationships with others. Nearly everyone can find benefit from these skills, especially those with anxiety, mood disorders, borderline personality disorder, early childhood trauma, and relationship difficulties.
Outcomes through the use of DBT are nothing short of remarkable!

This group is for adults age 65+. Participants will meet weekly to discuss various important themes in life. Research shows that reminiscing can decrease levels of depression that is commonly experienced by older adults. By the end of the 10 week group participants will have a small autobiography of their life to keep or pass on as they please.
Wednesdays at 12:30pm with Emily Hopkins, LICSW

Nutrition is an important aspect of our overall wellbeing. Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition and help to promote healthful eating. We provide individuals and their families with practical nutrition guidance for both general wellness and to help manage specific medical conditions. We will work closely with you to create an individualized plan that helps you meet your goals and improve your health. We also offer monthly group nutrition classes.
