Don't suffer alone.
Working with a psychiatrist does not mean that you will never come across difficult times again. After all, you are human, and with our humanity comes moments of uncertainty and emotionality that is sometimes out of our control. If you find yourself feeling out of control, please reach out for help.
For EMERGENCIES, please call 9-1-1 or present to your nearest emergency room for medical or psychiatric attention.
For NON-URGENT routine concerns, questions or refill requests, please message Dr. Frische through the patient portal.
For URGENT needs, please utilize the following resources:
