Dr. Liss is a professor emeritus at Washington University School of Medicine, where he taught for several years. His expertise in the field of psychiatry includes treating military veterans suffering from PTSD and adult ADD/ADHD.
Appointments with the psychiatrist are available every Tuesday and two Thursdays a month. Although referrals are unnecessary, medical records are required from the former treatment agencies. An assessment with a therapist is completed for every client before meeting with the psychiatrist. Our clinic accepts most private insurance, Medicare, and Missouri Medicaid, including Mo Health Net and Molina.
We currently have four therapists on staff. They work with all ages and in different settings: individual, couples, and family therapy sessions.
