Harbor Psychologist offers a complete range of psychiatric and psychological services to adults and children.
Among the services it provides includes mental health evaluations, medication management, therapy/counseling, group therapy, and psychological testing.
The acquisition of Harbor Psychologist brings to Community Psychiatry four psychiatrists, six psychologists and eight licensed therapists to its team of more than 150 mental health care providers.
As per the terms of the acquisition, Harbor Psychologist will become part of the more than 40 Community Psychiatry family of clinics and will come under the Community Psychiatry name.
Harbor Psychologist founder Dr. Zecharia Oren said: “We are very excited to join the Community Psychiatry group, and to have the full resources of a widely recognized and respected organisation help us as we continue to grow and meet the needs of current and future patients within our community.
“We look forward to continuing to provide high quality behavioral health care covered by the bulk of health insurance providers in California and to improving access to quality mental health care as part of the Community Psychiatry organisation.”
The newly rebranded Community Psychiatry office will focus on treating patients suffering with depression, addictive disorders, bi-polar affective disorder (manic-depression), anxiety, panic, phobias, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), eating disorders, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), autism spectrum, behaviour problems, anger, stress and relationship issues.
Besides English, several clinicians at the new Community Psychiatry location speak Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog, Russian, Ukrainian, Punjabi, Urdu and Hebrew.
Community Psychiatry CEO Christopher Brengard said: “Given the unprecedented events of the past year due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the need for access to quality mental health care has never been greater.
“Expanding Community Psychiatry’s reach into more and more communities across the US is important for our providers, patients and communities as we work diligently to ensure access to compassionate, convenient and affordable mental health care services for everyone.”
