Mari Lilly, Psychiatrist  in Chattanooga
“Listening and thinking together, we can find solutions. Using my training in different types of psychotherapy, mindfulness meditation, psychopharmacology , biofeedback and hypnosis , we can put together a life you want. Life can be much more than it is now for you. Sadness, despair, anxiety and trauma are treatable, not a life sentence.

Michael Osborne, Psychiatrist  in Chattanooga
“My patients are eager, motivated individuals who want to work to improve their symptoms, productivity, and overall sense of well-being. We do this together through a combination of psychotherapy and medication management. I like to focus on identifying and encouraging positive coping styles and lifestyle choices while at the same time being aware and working to change those choices/coping strategies that may get in the way. I also like to spend time educating patients on the various aspects of their issues and treatment options.
