NAPA welcomes existing and new patient referrals!


Family is integral in the lives of most people. Family is encouraged to participate in individual patient care when appropriate, and requested by the patient. At times, families and couples may also be the focus of treatment. Experienced psychotherapists can develop a good understanding of family dynamics and roles, helping guide change to healthier patterns.


Individual therapy is a well established, effective, and classic treatment modality. Most people opt for the privacy of individual treatment to address their emotional and mental needs. Each NAPA provider is experienced in personal evaluation and management of a variety of conditions on a one-to-one basis.


Group psychotherapy is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. Although group treatment is best associated with, and the mainstay in, treatment of substance related disorders, it is known to benefit those struggling with many other conditions: eating disorders, mood disorders, behavioral problems, personality disorders, anxiety, stress, bereavement, and for those requiring additional support with chronic conditions. We will update you as specific groups are offered in our practice.

About Us

Dr. Penland established North Alabama Psychiatric Services (NAPA) in 2016 to create a comfortable and compassionate outpatient environment, where experienced clinicians and their patients can explore and promote healing of emotional, mental, behavioral and family health problems. Each patient and situation deserves a thorough and respectful personalized assessment, with the most honest and appropriate care plan. NAPA is founded on the belief that in a private setting, with a professional, personal and collaborative multidisciplinary team approach, people will have the best chance to experience an alleviation of suffering, to grow, and to thrive in their lives.

NAPA is composed of a variety of experienced mental health clinicians from different backgrounds and disciplines, who practice independently, and as a team, under the same roof. Each clinician contracts independently with a variety of third party payers to help meet your treatment needs.

5 Star!

I have been a patient of Dr. Penland for years and I can honestly say he is 5-star+. I never feel rushed and always know if he is running behind, it’s because the patient sitting in the chair is his top priority.
