Dr. Tascarella is a behavioral psychiatrist who has dedicated his life to behavioral healthcare.

From stress management to psychopharmacologic treatment, Dr. Tascarella can help you live the life you want to be living.

Our philosophy is based on a concept of achieving balance in health, wellness and spirituality. Our treatment setting insures confidentiality and fosters personal growth and awareness to help achieve success.

What to Expect

As a patient at the Institute for Higher Living, Dr. Tascarella will treat you like a human being, not a problem needing to be fixed. Your first meeting will involve lots of conversation as Dr. Tascarella learns about your history, what you struggle with, and what your goals are in life. You will be asked to fill out questionnaires prior to your first visit. Dr. Tascarella will review your responses as well as any medical history that might be relevant. He will work with you to get a complete and accurate picture before making any diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
