Our Philosophy
white-wash-logo 1.png


"I believe mental health care involves an exploration of physical, mental, and spiritual factors. This will be evident in each and every interaction we have. I believe quality mental health care is primary care. Just like a checkup or routine physical, mental health must have the same priority." -Jarryd

Talk therapy is a way of getting to the root of problems. Therapy involves support for your darkest moments while challenging your thoughts and behaviors to find new meaning and connection. This process leads to change and more importantly, a hope for a better tomorrow.


From herbal supplements to prescription medications our providers offer holistic treatment paired with a thorough discussion of risks, benefits, and alternatives for your mental wellness.

  • Do I need a referral?
    Mental health care is primary care. No referral is necessary.
  • What services do you offer?
    Jarryd provides psychiatric and diagnostic evaluations and treatment. His approach involves a thorough assessment which may result in a recommendation for prescription medications that adhere to FDA regulations and standards, nutraceuticals like herbs and vitamins that are not regulated, a medical workup to rule out other conditions that may mimic psychiatric symptoms, and/or a referral to therapy.
  • What are the current rates?
    For uninsured: $300 for 60 minute evaluation and $150 for 30 minute followup. For insured: Your rates will depend on factors such as co-insurance, deductible, and co-payment.

  • Do you treat ADHD?
    Yes, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder can make life feel inefficient and frustrating with even the simplest of tasks. Assessment for ADHD involves a thorough evaluation of your functioning from childhood and input from your loved ones. Additionally, we utilize a continuous performance examination to target specific markers from inattention, hyper-reactivity, memory, and impulsivity to rule out other causes for symptoms. This type of assessment is completed over 2-3 appointments.
  • What about out of network benefits?
    We take any plan with out of network benefits. Not only will we provide you with your plan's information, but also personally help you file the claim. Reimbursement takes less than a month in most cases.

    Yes, on the home page click link "schedule appointment" and pick a 10 minute slot with Jarryd. Please feel free to email, text or call us directly too.
  • What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychiatric nurse practitioner?
    Psychiatrists are physicians who complete a medical degree (MD/DO) with post graduate training referred to as residency over four or more years of specialized curriculum. Psychiatric nurse practitioners complete a master's degree with focused training in psychiatry. This often complements years of bedside experience in acute care settings. Psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses provide overlapping services based on their training and experience. Regardless of training, experience, or background- a good clinician knows what they can treat and when they need to refer out for a second opinion or specialized care. All licensed medical providers in Florida adhere to strict ethical principles.
  • What ages and populations do you treat?
    We currently see adults ages 18 and older.
  • What else should I know?
    Before choosing a medical professional, ask how much time they spend with you. At Winding Arbors we utilize a full 60 minutes for the first evaluation and followups are 30 minutes. You will never feel rushed in our practice. When choosing any provider for your medical needs, make sure to ask how much time they spend with you.
