Seeking The Best Psychiatrist in Austin For Your Mental Health?

Pondworks offers general outpatient mental health care for adults. We focus on issues associated with depression, anxiety, attention deficit and some personality disorders. Our bio-psycho-social approach centers on a balance between psychotherapy (“talk therapy”) and pharmacology (medication) in the majority of treatment situations. Please look closely at our diagnoses of focus below. On a case-by-case basis, a Pondworks provider will consider establishing a treatment relationship with a patient whose diagnosis is not included.

Please note: Our services are targeted toward adult outpatient care, and our expectation is that our patients are capable of independently managing their schedules and bills. If you have an extenuating circumstance that hinders your ability to make your own appointment, please let us know. Otherwise, we prefer to work directly with our patients, rather than a family member, friend, and/or referring mental health provider.
