PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATION MANAGEMENT
Let's find a solution together
Medication management serves a critical role in treating various mental health issues. It can aid patients in crisis or manage conditions in the long term. While we believe strongly that counseling and therapy are essential parts of mental health treatment, there are circumstances in which medications can safely and effectively reduce debilitating symptoms. We are here to determine whether or not the medication is a viable option for treating you and if so, what is the appropriate medication and dosage to get you back on track to your true self.
Our medication management services include:
1. An initial assessment which include an overview of your symptoms and collection of your medical history
Based on this assessment, we will make a diagnosis and customize a treatment plan just for you. Including medication in your mental health interventions is your personal choice, and we respect the decisions you make around this sensitive issue. If you agree to move forward with your treatment plan, various medications, possible side effects and proper dosage will be discussed.
2. Changes to prescriptions, as needed
Finding the right medication to treat your mental condition can be a frustrating trial-and-failure process, because not every medication works the same for every person. We are here to help you determine what unique combination of medicines your body needs to function and thrive. The key with medication management is patience and persistence. Please trust the process and be open with us about what you need while we work to eventually come up with the right medication for you.
3. Ongoing medical monitoring related to the medications, their side effects, and their possible interactions with other medications.
Managing medication effectively requires your attention and commitment. Follow up appointments are scheduled anywhere between 2 weeks to every 3 months, depending on your response to treatment. During your follow up appointments, our providers will evaluate your progress, monitor any potential side effects/adverse effects and order labs as indicated. Even in well-managed scenarios, things can change over time, and your experience with a medication can evolve. Working with your provider closely is the best way to ensure that you are getting the right amount of medicines.
Empathetic Approach to Psychiatry
Alongside Medication Management, all of our providers are trained in Supportive Psychotherapy. This type of therapy focuses especially on current, problematic relationships and maladaptive patterns of behavior and emotional patterns. Techniques used in supportive psychotherapy include comforting, advising, encouraging, reassuring and mostly listening, attentively and sympathetically. Supportive psychotherapy is clinically proven to help gain insight, build self-esteem, reduce anxiety, strengthen coping skills, and improve social functioning. Most importantly, we provide you an emotional outlet, the chance for you to express yourself and be yourself.
We do not offer specific psychotherapies such as CBT, DBT, IPT, EMDR, psychoanalysis or others. However, we welcome patients working with a therapist and are committed to a fully collaborative approach with your therapist to meet all of your treatment goals.
Innovative, Non-Drug Therapy that helps people with Resistant Depression
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) helps activate the natural function of the brain's neurotransmitters using magnetic pulses. TMS is a breakthrough in the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder because it has shown to help those who cannot get significant relief from antidepressant medications. It is also an alternative for those who choose not to take prescription to take medication to treat their depression.
Patient must be at least 12 years to be seen at our clinic.
Parental consent is required for all minor patients.
