Medication Management

For some individuals, a major aspect of the treatment process for mental health disorders at any is medication. While not right for everyone, psychotropic medications be a gamechanger for many who are struggling with mental health illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. While medications don’t provide a cure, they treat symptoms that can be debilitating, helping get people back to functioning. If you are currently taking medication, or think you might need it, consulting with a qualified psychiatrist or a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner if a great first step. Psychiatrist and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner can prescribe medications and make sure that the medications you are taking are working effectively (and in some cases, they also provide therapy).

My field experience combined with my mental health background allows me to provide culturally competent care. I integrate both pharmacological and non pharmacological options to use a comprehensive approach to treatment. I work together with my clients to support their goals with or without medications. I will always opt out for non addictive options. If you are taking benzodiazepines or z-drugs on a regular basis, you will be better served with another clinician.

My goal is to get you the results you desire at the minimum dosage required. Modern medications are true wonders in effectively improving mental health and life outcomes. But they can have downsides–including possible physical or psychological dependence, interactions with other medications you may be taking, or side effects. My job is to find the optimal regimen for you, maximizing benefits and minimizing or eliminating any potential downsides.

Support via psychiatric medications or natural alternatives based on your preference. As a holistic provider my practice is very individualized and not one-size-fits-all. I utilize the best of both conventional medications and alternative treatments, carefully choosing what will have the best effect with the lowest likelihood of negative side effects for your individual needs.

Medication is an essential part of the treatment of many mental health concerns as they can manage, reduce, and/or eliminate symptoms, improving your overall well-being. Medication affects people uniquely, so I will evaluate your needs before prescribing medication. I will continually monitor your use of the medication(s) to ensure the desired outcome.

In the current society, Medication management has taken a major misconception regarding an individual's mental health. Just like some individuals need insulin or blood pressure medication to help the body to function properly, others need mental health medication to balance dopamine, serotonin, adrenaline, and so on. Our providers understand not every medication works the same for every person so they collaborate with each individual till they find the right balance to live life to the fullest.
