Frequently asked questions about working with Geode Health

Our Rockford location stands out for its integration of evidence-based talk therapy with advanced treatments, targeting a range of mental health issues including mood disorders and adolescent psychiatry. The Geode Health team in Rockford is adept in addressing the complex spectrum of mental illnesses, tailoring their service to the unique needs of the Rockford community. We prioritize accessibility, offering various payment options for our mental health treatment. Our Rockford clinic is a nurturing environment, promoting active patient participation in personalized care plans, reinforcing the collaborative essence of effective mental health care.

Rockford psychiatric specialists at Geode Health, being medical doctors, have the unique ability to prescribe medication and manage medical aspects of mental health issues like bipolar disorder, which therapists cannot. Their extensive training in psychiatry and medication management is crucial for comprehensive mental health treatment. Therapists, on the other hand, focus on various effective talk therapies and often work in conjunction with psychiatrists to provide all-encompassing care.

At Geode Health, the frequency of therapy or psychiatry sessions is highly personalized, considering each individual’s specific needs and circumstances. Whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, our mental health professionals in Rockford craft a treatment plan that best aligns with your unique situation, ensuring you receive the most effective care.

While psychologists at Geode Health often hold doctorate degrees, they are not medical doctors and specialize in non-pharmacological approaches to mental health care, like counseling and therapy. Psychiatrists, in contrast, are medical doctors with a focus on medication management for mental health issues. However, they are also equipped to provide talk therapy and other complementary treatments, offering a comprehensive approach to mental health treatment.
