Who We Are

Psychological HealthCare (PHC) was founded by two psychologists, Dr. Joel Richman and Dr. Ron Fish, who joined forces in 1999 to develop the premier group mental health practice in Central New York.   In 2021, PHC became affiliated with Refresh Mental Health (RMH), a leading national behavioral health organization that shares PHC’s client-centered values. 

Under the umbrella of RMH, PHC is proud to continue the mission that the founders envisioned, to provide high-quality behavioral health services to the Central New York community in a safe and welcoming setting.
