About MPP

Welcome to My Psychiatric Partner (MPP), a unique online practice that utilizes telemedicine to provide patients with quality psychiatric treatment in the comfort and privacy of their own home.

Our commitment to quality care goes beyond convenience and technology. To us, telemedicine is simply a means to provide that quality care, while also eliminating shame or embarrassment barriers for patients who may not feel comfortable leaving their home or going to a psychiatric office.
