Our experienced providers are specialized in psychiatry and the medications used to treat mental health diagnoses including anxiety, depression, and ADHD. Your provider sees you as a unique person with unique needs. To help you (or your child) unleash your potential, they will work with you to develop a personalized medication plan to help control symptoms that are standing in the way.
We believe all people of capable of growth and change — mental health does not define anyone. Our Medication Management team, made up of Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners, will assist you in determining if medication will help with your mental health symptoms. Together, you, your provider, and other members of your healthcare team will come up with a plan that is best for you.
Your first visit with us will be an hour long and follow-up visits will each be 30 minutes long. We want to give you time to share your health needs and goals. When people are experiencing depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems it is important to take the time to go over your history and symptoms. This helps us figure out what you need BEFORE prescribing medications. Each person is unique — including you — and we want to ensure your care is personalized for your needs.
If you need medicine to help with your mental health, it is important that your medication is monitored. This means an ongoing conversation with your nurse practitioner. Through ongoing conversations, we can ensure the right medication and treatment plan is in place to improve your mental well-being. Your provider will help you to create short and long-term medication plans. Part of your plan includes working with you to evaluate how you are reacting to your medication(s). And, with the information they gather, can make adjustments if needed to make sure you get the best possible results.
Our clinicians are certified psychiatric nurse practitioners. Like all psychiatry providers, they specialize in treating individuals with acute and chronic mental health needs. They are fully qualified to diagnose and treat mental health problems. Your provider will work to create a treatment plan specific to your needs. They will also collaborate with your family doctor and other members of your health team, including anyone providing therapy, to ensure seamless care.
