ILLUMENTAL Counseling and Psychiatry offers both in-office and teletherapy assessments and mental health services, ensuring that all patients have access to the mental health care they need.
Patients receive individualized care designed to explore and address current mental health symptoms and distress, as well as explore and resolve the underlying issues that contribute to emotional difficulties.

The team offers treatments for trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and emotional consequences of “invisible” physical conditions that are frequently misdiagnosed, ignored, or are inadequately treated. Dr. Obolsky and his team provide customized care for patients to improve their mental health and fulfill their full potential.

We provide a flexible schedule and teletherapy to meet patients wherever is most convenient for them , including, traditional office visits or secured online video sessions.

Who we want to help

Have you felt like the world is telling you, you are done; do you feel defeated by your situation?  Have you felt overwhelmed, angry, and isolated by your experience? You are not alone.

ILLUMENTAL is here to tell you; you are not done; your illness does not define you.  We specialize in helping people who have had a traumatic medical experience, including chronic medical conditions or physical trauma, which has affected you emotionally.  We understand the vast intricacies of managing a chronic illness, the numerous doctors’ appointments, the unpredictability of a flare, having to tell your employer that you need to take yet another sick day.  Explaining your absences at family functions. The list goes on and on.

The emotional rollercoaster that you go through can sometimes become so overwhelming that it can be helpful to have a professional to speak with.  ILLUMENTAL Counseling & Psychiatry is staffed with therapists, psychiatrists, and psychologists who all have experience working with chronically ill individuals.  Please send us an email or give us a call to see how we can help.
