Welcome Letter from Our Founders:
We believe the right treatment can be life changing. Not only can it improve your symptoms - that’s the basics - but it can also set you on a course to a more fulfilling and meaningful life. We know this from the experiences of our patients, and from our own journeys.
Providing excellent holistic treatment is what drives us. It is rewarding to see a woman overcome her severe anxiety and be able to speak and take charge in executive meetings. It is fulfilling to help a man with a history of trauma and depression develop the courage to leave his job and set out to pursue his creative dream. It is gratifying to help a woman with a history of relationship difficulties recognize the causes of this problem and find a more secure partner. This kind of progress requires time, and attention to all the biological, psychological, cultural, and circumstantial aspects of a person’s life.
We couldn’t make this kind of impact in our community alone. So in 2017, we teamed up and founded RIVIA to help make reliable and high quality care more widely available.
We do this by carefully hand-picking excellent clinicians who share our dedication to quality treatment. They are not only knowledgeable and highly trained, but also caring and attentive. Most importantly, the practitioners at RIVIA believe in our practicing philosophy (link). They are here to be your partners in the journey to recovery. Take a look at our providers page to learn more about them (link). We are proud of each and every one of them for their accomplishments and skills as clinicians.
Further, we have worked hard to create a culture of excellence throughout our organization. Each of our trusted clinicians is constantly striving to improve and learn new techniques and together as a group we share this expertise with each other through our many internal educational seminars.
Our excellence extends to our support staff as well. Everyone at RIVIA, from our front desk to our billing coordinator, is personally dedicated to mental health and endeavors to give each of our clients a comfortable and welcoming experience. In this way, we ensure that you get reliable service and care, from your first phone call or email, and throughout your time with us.
As for affordability, we understand that working in-network with insurance is far less expensive. So we proudly take most of the large insurance carriers. Further, we strive to broaden and expand the insurance plans we accept, so that our quality of care does not break your bank.
So welcome to RIVIA! With the right care and treatment, we hope that you are able to take control of your life and lead it to where you want to go.
Dr. Raymond Raad and Dr. Dana Wang
