Quality Care You Can Trust

Embracing Life Wellness Center has been a true blessing in my life... Stephanie Frank has been in my corner pushing for my success during my most difficult times. She has genuinely been in my corner since the very first day we started working together on my treatment plan. She saved me and has been a light in the darkness. She offers hope, educates her clients, and provides a level of comfort I have never had before with other providers. You will quickly build trust with her and in her recommendations. I am confident in her care. Even after relocating to a new city, I continue to be a loyal client due to her wonderful care and meet with her virtually. She makes treatment easy. The office staff is friendly and scheduling appointments is never an issue. Having accessibility to your providers medical assistant also help communicating your needs in between appointments. If you are struggling and need help, please don't give up on yourself. I have had negative experiences with other providers and after reaching out to Embracing Life Wellness Center, my life changed. Mental Health Matters.

Life changing guidance from Dr. Stephanie Frank (works with Dr. Fickey) at Embracing Life Wellness Center. My only regret is not reaching out to her years ago - I just didn't know life could be so peaceful for me! Thank you!

Stephanie Frank, ARNP is the MOST caring person. She provides individualized help; spends the time to talk with you and help you. My mental health has significantly improved. I strongly encourage anyone that reads this that needs help to reach out to them.

I just finished my 36 treatments of TMS! Had a setback mid-way through and my Embracing Life Wellness provider, Dr. Melissa Fickey, and my TMS tech, Lauren Ashley, recommended I go into the hospital to stabilize. They (both are amazing) were proactive and maintained contact with my family during that time. Per recommendations from my regular psychiatrist and psychiatrists in the hospital, I continued TMS. Now, at this point in my recovery, I do feel a difference in my quality of life. I tried ECT a few times, but it was very invasive and the results never lasted long. Besides getting used to the pulses from TMS originally, I never had any side effects or pain. My TMS experience was very pleasant and positive. Everyone at Embracing Life was extremely friendly and always accommodating to my schedule. I feel really/truly cared about and supported!

I would really give it more like 10 out of 5 stars because this office had been so good to me. Sadly I am having to leave this office due to changes in my insurance but if I ever have changes again, EmbracingLife would be the first place I would turn to. Everyone from the office I spoke with was wonderful and friendly right down to the receptionists. Shout out to Stephanie! Thank you SO much for everything you did for me and for always being there for me and going the extra mile. Natalie was awesome! She was great and helped me figure out a plan financially to be able to start on some other therapeutic treatments. Love this office!!!
