Understand the Importance of Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health is a how the body reacts to our behaviors. Sometimes this can be a link between mental illness, and other times it is connected to substance use.

At SVH, we take a holistic approach to mental wellness through counseling and medication, and through the experience of our providers, we consider each patient an individual with individual needs and treatments. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Creating a healthy community is providing a strong base for wellness and much of that begins with our mental health.

We treat patients ages 8 and older.

A Fall City native, Lindsey Royal brings an enthusiasm for psychiatry and a special interest in children and adolescents as a psychiatric nurse practitioner.

After graduating from Lamar University with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, she completed a brief stint as a hospital nurse followed by over a decade of work as a psychiatric nurse. After completing her master’s degree through Walden University, she now works as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner serving our community from The Ridge Clinic.  She looks forward to expanding behavioral health options for younger patients within the Valley and surrounding area.

“Sometimes we all need a safe, non-judgmental space where we can just be who are,” she said. “My approach to counseling is to foster an honest and supportive relationship where healing and growth can occur. I do that by being present and collaborating with you to create a plan that addresses your needs and allowing the therapy process to unfold within your comfort level. I seek to understand the many aspects that make up who you are: physical, emotional and spiritual.”
