Everyone at the office is AWESOME!!!!. They treat you like family and make you feel comfortable and provide excellent care. They also work with you to help you and make sure you and your mental health come first before all else…Even the anxiety classes and all other programs and resources they offer to help people in need is perfect. I can honestly say unlike many other offices they really put patients first…They break down any questions about medications you may be starting and you never have to second guess….I would highly recommend this office to anyone!

– Patient

Simply put Dr. Harding is amazing!! She is kind and compassionate, she knows what she’s doing. I have full trust in her. From my very first appointment with her, I was anxious, but I felt comfortable. She takes a lot of precautions before starting you on medication, which helps a lot if you are feeling nervous about starting them or trying something new. She not only listens to you but gives good feedback and always teaches you something. She breaks it down so you fully understand your treatment. Dr. Harding team is also great. Sadia and Patrick are always helpful when booking appointments or helping you out with insurance. Overall they provided a comfortable environment and experience. Highly recommend!!

– Patient

I have been to a few doctors and this atmosphere is private, comfortable and you don’t feel rushed. It’s always a process and you have to trust it. They will get you to a better space if you do the work and trust the process. Just like everything you have your good and bad days there is no magic pill but here is a good start.

15 Minutes Is Not Enough

When patients taIk about past treatments, I often hear, “I don’t know what the doctor said or did, I just know I walked out 15 minutes later with a new med.” Depression M D takes the exact opposite approach. – Dr. Lisa Harding MD

15 minutes may be all it takes to save money on your car insurance. It’s nowhere near what it takes to get to know a patient.

Depression MD takes time to get to know you, and develop a true diagnosis. We don’t let insurance dictate your time. The diagnosis is the foundation of a patient’s treatment plan. Some things should never be rushed.

Depression MD talks to all of your doctors…
yes, all of them. 

Treatment plans are developed
after talking to your doctors. From your primary caregiver to your rheumatologist, we listen to it all and then develop the best plan to treat you.

The concept of health intervention
is a serious one. It is the approach Depression MD uses to bring patients to successful recoveries.

Dr. Harding is a genuinely caring person!!! She is by far the best that Doctor I have seen on SO many levels! This wonderful woman has a TRUE love and passion for what she does and believes in. Dr. Harding has gone out of her way, above and beyond to show me how much she cares! She is a real down to earth person, easy to talk to and LISTENS. I was afraid to see a new resident when she started because of all my past experiences, but she has been the biggest blessing to walk into my life when I needed it the most! I will forever be grateful for her and the beautiful soul that she has I would and WILL always recommend Dr. Harding to ANYONE

Depression is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Fortunately, it is also treatable.

Treatment Resistant Depression

Treatment Resistant Depression is a  condition that affects people with major depressive disorder (MDD) who do not respond adequately to a course of medication within a certain time.

Many clinicians consider a response inadequate if the person does not achieve full remission of symptoms. The most common definition for MDD requires a minimum of two prior treatment failures.

Schedule Consultation


Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress and can alert us to dangers and help us prepare and pay attention. Anxiety disorders differ from normal feelings and involve excessive fear. 

Anxiety disorders affect nearly 30 percent of adults at some point in their lives. But anxiety disorders are treatable and treatment helps most people lead normal productive and successful lives.
