Counseling & Psychiatric Evaluations
Psychiatric Evaluation and Behavioral Health Counseling at Gulf Coast Health Center
When most people think about health and wellness, they think about the body and physical wellbeing. Good health, however, goes beyond the body to include the mind because more and more research has shown the strong connection between mental and physical wellbeing. To provide truly comprehensive healthcare to our patients, Gulf Coast Health Center provides patients with access to both physical and mental healthcare.
What Is Behavioral Healthcare?
Today’s standard for psychological treatment provides an effective combination of talk therapy, behavioral counseling and medication to provide patients with a well-rounded set of tools and resources that will help them achieve physical, mental and emotional healing. At Gulf Coast Health Center, we provide patients with comprehensive mental healthcare, including assessments, psychiatric evaluation, therapy, medication management and behavioral counseling to help patients manage concerns such as:
- Addiction and Recovery
- Anxiety and Depression
- Anxiety Schizophrenia
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chemical Dependency
- Developmental Delays
- Eating Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Marriage and Family Concerns
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

We work with each patient individually to assess their mental health concerns and set goals for counseling, such as a more thorough understanding of behavior and emotions and developing strategies for improvement.
What to Expect During a Psychiatric Evaluation or Psychological Assessment
An initial psychiatric evaluation marks the beginning of a journey to wellness. A psychological assessment allows our licensed and professionally trained mental health professionals to establish a medical history and baseline for each new patient’s treatment. During intake, we will ask about each patient’s medical history, past treatments and current concerns. We will evaluate the patient’s current symptoms and history in order to determine the treatment strategy and/or program that will best benefit each individual patient. During each psychiatric evaluation, we work hard to ensure patients always feel comfortable and well-informed.
