Who we are
KAV Mental Health & Psychiatry is one of Ohio’s premier mental health treatment providers specializing in psychiatry, mental health counseling and therapy, and addiction treatment. We serve patients from Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, and beyond through our online mental health treatment program and virtual teletherapy services. Our goal is to provide an empowering and individualized experience that our patients will find effective, supportive, convenient, and easily accessible.
MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER TREATMENT
Mental health disorders are a wide range of conditions that can affect mood, thinking, and behavior. Some drain people of their motivation, while others push people to make risky choices, but all get in the way of living life.
We offer medication to lessen these symptoms, and personalized therapy to help identify unhealthy thought patterns and teach sustainable ways to overcome mental health disorders.
ONLINE TELEHEALTH SERVICES
Our online telehealth services use a confidential, HIPAA-compliant video platform so patients can reap the benefits of our dedicated treatment from the comfort of home. Our doctors and counselors schedule appointments six days a week, with same-day options available, so patients can access the care and support they deserve when they need it most.
Online Mental Health Treatment
Following a comprehensive assessment, our Mental Health Director will make an official mental health disorder diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan based on a patient’s unique needs and goals. From there, we conduct regular virtual check-ins, monitor medications, and adjust our care as a patient’s needs evolve.
Online Mental Health Counseling
Patients will have an opportunity to connect with our experienced team of licensed counselors for virtual counseling sessions as part of their mental health treatment plan. Teletherapy is offered in a private one-on-one setting, as well as in small groups for those who would benefit from a supportive peer environment.
Online Suboxone Treatment
Mental health disorders are often accompanied by a substance use disorder (SUD), which is why we address both in tandem. For those suffering with an addiction to opioids, we offer online Suboxone treatment and substance abuse counseling to help them bypass traditional detox and transition into recovery more easily.
