Services Provided

Providing child, adolescent, individual adult, couples and family counseling with the following treatment specializations:

Medication consultation, prescription, and management for people of all ages.


Dr. Baumgardner provides personalized medication consultation, prescription and management with an integrated approach to mental health care.  Because she knows you in a therapeutic context, she is better able to understand how medication will fit within your overall health and collaborative treatment plan.

Online Telepsychiatry Services for Medication consultation and management or for Psychological Services

Dr. Baumgardner provides therapy, medication consultation, prescription and management via internet based platforms (Facetime, Tele-psychiatry and Psychology) as indicated or necessary for Arizona (part-time or full-time) or Maryland (part-time or full-time) residents.  Facetime (for Mac users) must be installed and working for tele-psychiatry sessions. This unique service allows established patients who are a significant distance from the office to receive non-urgent medication management online for follow-up treatment rather than coming in for an office visit at each follow up visit. 

Functional and Holistic Psychiatric Evaluation and Diagnosis

Dr. Baumgardner examines blood work and DNA results to see what your body's unique needs are then uses micronutrients, diet, nutrition, herbal supplements and medications when needed, to get you back to feeling your best.  Through genetic testing, we can understand the best medicine for you without the frustrations of trying multiple medications.  The genetic testing is done through a saliva sample collected in the privacy of our office.
