Medication Management:

Psychiatric medication management is a crucial aspect of psychiatric treatment and involves a collaborative approach between the psychiatrist, the patient, and sometimes our other healthcare providers.

It is strongly recommended that Medication Management be in coordination with Talk Therapy as this can provide insights into behaviors and give tools for coping with mental health disorders.

When you begin Medication for psychiatric conditions expect to have more frequent visits to make sure the medications are working as intended. This can range from every 3 weeks to every month and a half at first.

Once therapeutic levels of medication have been reached, check-ins can be every 3 to 6 months.

Our providers:

  • Prescribe

  • Monitor

  • Adjust medications as needed

Talk Therapy:

For many individuals, talk therapy provides a secure environment to explore emotions and thoughts triggered by everyday stressors, medical conditions, relationship challenges, bereavement, or traumatic experiences.

For others, these issues may be intricate, potentially leading to the diagnosis of mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety.

Once these concerns are identified, a therapist assists in understanding how these stressors impact life, working collaboratively to devise strategies and solutions aimed at alleviating symptoms.

Typically, a talk therapy session spans approximately an hour, often around 50 minutes. The frequency and duration of therapy sessions hinge on symptom severity and the treatment plan crafted by the therapist.

Some of the things our Therapists can help with:

  • Anxiety
  • Couples Therapy
  • Depression
  • Faith Crisis/Transition
  • Family Issues
  • Grief / Loss
  • Intrusive Thoughts
  • LGBTQ+
  • Life Changes
  • Motivation
  • OCD
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobia’s
  • PTSD
  • Relationship issues
  • Self-esteem
  • Social anxiety
  • Stress
  • Trauma/Difficult Life Events

Initially, weekly attendance is common, facilitating the establishment of a rapport with the therapist and adaptation to the therapeutic process.

As coping mechanisms are developed and signs of improvement emerge, session frequency may transition to bi-monthly appointments.
