About Horizon Psychiatry

Helping people help themselves to live life better.

We are a family owned children, adolescents and adult psychiatry clinic, who have come together to make our dreams come true. All of us are born and raised in Minnesota and are eager to provide high quality adult psychiatry services to our very own community. Together, we bring a variety of clinical and administrative experience. Our experience varies from backgrounds of nursing, medical coding & billing, health administration, and medication management. Our goal is to meet the needs of every patient who seeks care for medication management of a psychiatric condition. We all strive to work closely with each patient to help improve their quality of life. We value the therapeutic relationship and look forward to working with patients on their journey to better their mental health.

In 2019, Horizon Psychiatry and Family Based Therapy Associates , formed a strategic alliance in order to bring together our respective strengths and shared philosophies of providing exceptional and ethically delivered mental health care. We believe this alliance will advance the provision of collaborative mental health care through the prompt response to persons requesting diagnosis, psychotherapy, psychiatric medication management or combinations of these services.
