Mental & Behavioral Health Services
Our team works together for the greatest good of each patient.
For us, the greatest indicator of success is when you, as our patient, feel comfortable with us—and it starts the moment you arrive.
Whether it’s your first time at HealthWorks or we’ve been working together for years, you can count on us for a warm welcome when you get here, and a safe, supportive environment to encourage your ongoing healing and growth.
To make health care affordable, we offer a sliding scale fee structure for our income-eligible patients. We also accept most insurance.
Getting to know you creates a unique opportunity for us to work together and connect you with resources (including community partners and/or our care and case management services) to improve your quality of life.

I have never been to a healthcare center that treats me so well; they are all so amazing, loving, and caring, and I am thankful and blessed to come here. I feel so loved and cared for.
I always recommend HealthWorks. It’s never a problem to get an appointment, even with my difficult schedule, and they make it quick and easy to get on the sliding fee scale.
