We're here to help
At Covenant Family Solutions, we walk beside you on your path to mental wellness. Sometimes people need medicine to help with their mental health. When that is the case, our nurse practitioners can help you find the right medicine for you, like other psychiatry providers.
Your first visit with us will be an hour long because we want to give you time to share your health needs and goals. When people are struggling with depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems it is important to have a thorough assessment. This is because it helps us figure out what help you need before prescribing medications.
What is medication management and psychiatry
If you need medicine to help with your mental health, it is important that your medication is monitored. So, you will have an ongoing conversation with your nurse practitioner. This can help to ensure the right medication and treatment plan is implemented to improve one’s behavioral health. Your provider will help you to create short and long-term medication plans. Your nurse practitioner will work with you to evaluate how you are reacting to the medication. And, with the information they gather can make adjustments if needed to make sure you get the best possible results.
Why should I see a specialist for psychiatry instead of my family doctor?
Our clinicians are certified psychiatric nurse practitioners in the field of psychiatry. They specialize in treating individuals with acute and chronic mental health needs. They are fully qualified to diagnose and treat mental health problems. Our providers will work to create treatment plans 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. When a person is also in therapy at Covenant Family Solutions, our nurse practitioners work closely with our therapists and counselors, so they are working together on behalf of the people we serve.
