We have graduate students and post-graduate students under the direction of Dr. Deborah Jenks, DNP that are part of our team.

What to Expect
One of our staff members will conduct a free initial screening to determine the appropriateness of your mental health care needs for our clinic and select the provider most equipped to assist you.
After completing the initial screening, if Coastal Ridge Health Services can meet your needs, then an appointment will be scheduled with a provider for a psychiatric evaluation. A Psychiatric Evaluation includes a comprehensive interview and assessment. During this appointment, the provider we go over current symptoms as well as your medical, psychiatric, social, and family history. The information collected will give the provider the information needed to determine a diagnosis or preliminary diagnosis pending additional testing if needed. Some examples of additional testing may include computer-based tests, cognitive testing, questionnaire’s, blood tests or genetic testing.
After your psychiatric evaluation is complete including additional testing (if recommended), you may be prescribed medication to decrease or resolve your symptoms. Many psychiatric problems are caused by underlying medical or biological problems. Medication can be a critical component of your treatment. Our providers will discuss your diagnosis with you and the reason for the medication if needed. The type of treatment recommended and why and any side effects. The provider will recommend when you should schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure the medication and other treatment recommendations are working properly for you. Based on your individualized need we may recommend services to include psychotherapy, psychological/neuropsychological testing, neurological assessment, biofeedback, or others.
