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).

Meet the specialists

 

I am an expert at prescribing medications and do so very cautiously. The right medication can make all the difference to personal growth in therapy. I love science and using new technologies such as genetic testing using a cheek swab (Genesight) to help choose the right medications. I also use new medications such as Spravato.

As a medical doctor and Board-certified psychiatrist, I have a decade of training underpinning my practice. So whatever you're going through, I'm committed to identify whether medication may be right for you and if so in what form. I will also take the time to educate you about the science underlying any issues you might be facing and how medication might help.

I view medication as a tool in your toolbox to assist you in doing the work of therapy and making lifestyle and situational changes. It is rare that a medication will provide full relief of symptoms. I often work with people who are medication averse or anxious about starting medications. It can be a complex process and often times there is a history of bad experiences with providers and medications and managing side effects, I strive to be sensitive to that fact.
