In order to limit the exposure and transmission of Covid-19, PTI will be exclusively doing tele-psychiatry (virtual) visits. You will still have your appointment, you will just have to do it with our Virtual Psych Network (VPN™). Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
We know how important it is to have someone who’s on your side. Someone you can rely on to get you through the rough spots. At some point in our lives, we all need someone who will listen, guide, advise, or treat. That’s why we’ve assembled a team of like-minded professionals who are committed to our mission and values which provide the foundation for why we’re here for you.
On our team, you’ll find experienced psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, licensed professional counselors, psychologists, and neuropsychologists, all with the same mission of helping you find your mental clarity and experience an increased quality of life.
PTI was originally founded by US military veterans to serve the mental health needs of returning US servicemen and women, with the goal of smoothing the transition back to civilian life. However, we soon realized how much work there was to do in our community-at-large, so PTI expanded our services to be more inclusive of the needs of the community.
Our comprehensive approach to complete mental health involves a variety of services, including: screening and assessment, individual and group evaluation and treatment, medication administration and management, and clinical casework services. We do our best to educate you on what’s going on, what treatments can help, what your part is in the process, and what to expect along the way. This is what we mean when we say we “partner” with clients to achieve the best outcomes possible.
PTI is not a typical mental healthcare facility. PTI is a privately owned mental health organization that exists to remove the barriers to delivering the highest quality of mental healthcare by staying true to our mission and values. We live and work in the community we serve. Thus, we are committed to delivering a client care experience that facilitates the best possible clinical outcomes for our neighbors, family and friends.
We accept most insurance, and offer convenient hours of operation to accommodate our patients. We guide individuals and families to a more complete mental health.
There are approximately 318,000 veterans that reside in Louisiana. Most recently the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have exposed Louisiana’s finest to a variety of stressful situations. Our soldiers have been asked to give their all. Many have returned home to a world they don’t understand. PTI was established to guide their reintegration back into society.
