Our practice offers a range of services including psychotherapy and medication management for various mental health conditions.

Meet Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD

Dr. Kenneth Etefia, MD, is a double board-certified adult and child psychiatrist with extensive experience in helping patients achieve their mental health goals. Dr. Etefia excels in working with patients who have a clear vision of their goals and are motivated to learn skills and gain deeper insights into themselves.

Cutting-Edge Treatments

Among the innovative treatments offered at our practice are:

  • Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS): An FDA-approved intervention utilizing magnetic fields to treat treatment-resistant depression. TMS therapy typically involves 20-40 sessions, each lasting approximately 50 minutes.

  • Spravato (Esketamine): An FDA-approved, rapid-acting antidepressant for treatment-resistant depression. Depending on the patient’s response, Spravato sessions can occur from twice weekly to once monthly, with each session lasting about 2 hours.
