Psychotherapy at Gateway

Welcome!

We are glad you are here. We want to help you navigate the confusing world of seeking help from a therapist. Kelsey Schraufnagel, PsyD
We offer a number of different treatment options at Gateway. In addition to offering psychiatric services (medication management), we also offer the opportunity to engage with psychotherapy (traditional talk therapy) exclusively with our well-trained staff clinicians. This page will inform client’s who are looking to engage with psychotherapy without the addition of medication management.
