Medical Professional Wellness

Medical professionals’ unique experiences require specialized support.

Medical Professional Mental Wellness

We appreciate and honor the hard work medical professionals do each day to keep our community safe and healthy. The occupational stressors faced by physicians, nurses and other medical professionals mean that they, themselves need specialized care at times. At Monarch Behavioral Health, we have specialized programming and treatment plans to support the mental health needs of these front-line workers. We offer confidential, individual counseling and assessment services both in person and via telehealth, with daytime and evening appointments available. We utilize skill-based, empirically supported techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), to provide physicians with tools to combat burnout, find meaning in their work, build resiliency, and improve relationships and sleep.  In addition to individual services, we also facilitate support groups and provide debriefing after trauma. Addressing these mental health needs lightens the burdens and stressors of this incredibly important work, so that medical professionals can lead balanced lives.
