Integrative Psychiatric Virtual Care

Due to COVID 19 our visits are virtual until further notice. We anticipate resuming in person visits after the Winter of 2021. This website includes screening tools to help you better communicate with your provider.

When you have been cleared to make appointment the link is: doxy.me/ballardpsychiatricservices.com


Provider Approach

     Kimmer specializes in  the holistic treatment of depression, anxiety; attention, focus & concentration issues;  sleep disturbances, ADHD, and some substance use issues.  Care is collaborative and not cookie-cutter so keeping an open mind about the process of diagnoses is important. Many conditions have overlapping symptoms and occur together. Filling out and sending in screens contained on this website in advance can help identify problems along with the visit/interview.


     Unfortunately, google screens can give the false impression that you might have a particular condition. While this could be true, Kimmer thoroughly assesses you and collaboratively helps you find the right treatment plan. This generally takes 2-3 visits and assessment will continue and be adjusted over the course of  care. Please plan on seeing her at least monthly unless otherwise directed. 


     All prescriptions filled will be done at our virtual or office visits. On exception, refills are performed outside of office visits for a fee of $25.00 (not billable to your insurance company) to cover provider's time.

Please feel free to ask any questions by emailing  [email protected]
