Desert Wise’s mission is to set a new standard for mental healthcare by establishing a business-medical culture in which patients receive dignified, outcome-driven treatment. Dr. Joye Henrie is committed to high quality mental health care that is driven by respect for patient rights, informed by contemporary research, and delivered in a professional clinic setting. Dr. Henrie seeks to establish mental healthcare as a relatable service to a broad scope of individuals from various backgrounds. Dr. Henrie is committed to providing a cutting edge, value added mental healthcare experience that secures the confidence of both patients and primary care physicians.
Desert Wise is foremost committed to providing dignified, effective, confidential mental health treatment.
- Dignified treatment: Dr. Henrie learned early in her career that individuals seeking mental health treatment can have significant, multifaceted reservations about seeing a mental health professional. Dr. Henrie has created an environment that honors patients’ dignity. Our goal is to provide you with the same professionalism you would expect from your primary care doctor, attorney, or accountant. We have been faithful to this goal, in part, by ensuring a professional clinic atmosphere, developing comprehensive consent and policy forms, and maintaining appropriate boundaries between providers and patients.
- Effective treatment: Dr. Henrie is well-versed in both the scientific research underpinning mental health treatment and the art of applied clinical treatment. She understands that not all laboratory findings translate effectively to real life. Thus, she is informed by research-based mechanisms of change, but expertly employs this knowledge in a way that is relevant and useful to each individual. Dr. Henrie believes that treatment is not effective if a patient drops out, and patients drop out of treatment if they feel the information, approach, or therapeutic relationship is not useful or applicable to them. For this reason, Dr. Henrie is constantly mindful of what works for you – not what works in a lab or for anyone else.
- Confidential treatment: There are a variety of reasons why confidentiality may be of paramount importance to an individual. Dr. Henrie respects confidentiality concerns and has developed an entire business model around them – so that you are afforded the opportunity to develop comfort at your own pace.
