Due to limited clinician availability, we are currently accepting new patients by referral only. If you are looking to become a new patient, please review our clinician availability and have your doctor or counselor fax your referral information to 828-250-0890. A referral is not required for new testing clients.
Welcome to the Pisgah Institute
The Pisgah Institute is comprised of psychiatrists, doctoral level psychologists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners who address a full range of mental conditions. We provide consultation, medication management, and individual psychotherapies. We perform psychological and educational testing, stress management, and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a new treatment for depression. We provide services for children, adults, and families.
The Pisgah Institute is the largest, most comprehensive behavioral-health practice in Western North Carolina. We provide a wide variety of mental-health treatments. The home-like atmosphere of the practice provides a relaxing atmosphere where patients can feel comfortable and cared for.

Due to recent changes, we are no longer able to accept any new patients with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) for psychiatry (medication management). We will continue to consider new patients for psychological services (counseling & testing) as availability permits. We are also not accepting any new patients with Medicaid as either primary or secondary insurance. However, we are now happy to share that most of The Pisgah Institute’s providers are in-network with Cigna and Aetna.
Current patients with BCBS and Medicaid are unaffected by these changes.
