We encourage you to interact with Deep Eddy Psychotherapy, LLC through social media.

Not Medical Advice: Any information we post on social media platforms is for general informational purposes only and should not be considered medical advice and is not intended to replace any relationship or consultation with a health care provider or mental health professional (collectively, “Provider”). You should always talk to your Provider for diagnosis and treatment, including information regarding which treatment may be appropriate for you. None of information posted represents or warrants that any particular treatment is safe, appropriate or effective for you. Because health information changes quickly you should always confirm information with your Provider. If you think you may have a medical or mental health emergency, call your health care provider or dial 911 immediately.
