About Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry


Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry

Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry is a leading outpatient psychiatric mental health clinic located in Orem and Lehi, Utah. Founded by psychiatrist David Paulson, MD, and staffed with Traci Naylor, APRN, PMHNP; Mekenzie Cooper, APRN, PMHNP; Rebecca Harvey, APRN, PMHNP; Joel Covington, APRN, PMHNP; Dan Muster, APRN, PMHNP, Corrine Freeman, APRN, PMHNP, Brooke Merrill, APRN, PMHNP; and Karina McDonald, APRN, PMHNP, the practice’s philosophy states that patients receive the best care when they have strong alliances with their providers.

The team is committed to making each patient feel welcome and valued as they navigate mental health care. 

Patients at Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry are invited to come in for an initial visit, which lasts for around 90 minutes. 

During this time, the team reviews the patient’s medical history as well as current symptoms. They can help determine the patient's need for medication to treat their mental health condition, and they provide ongoing medication management incorporated with supportive therapy. 

Where helpful, patients can also receive pharmacogenetic testing, which may guide their providers to medications that work well with their genetic makeup.

Individuals ages 10 and older get individualized, attentive care from the providers at Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry. The team specializes in diagnosing and managing ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, and a range of anxiety disorders.

Most care plans involve primarily in-person visits, but telepsychiatry is also available for patient convenience. The team provides medication management and limited psychotherapy services as well as lifestyle recommendations for numerous psychiatric conditions.
