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.

— Nataly Kuznetsov, PMHNP-BC, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in NAPA, CA

Medication intervention is not necessary for every situation, but in some cases it is appropriate and has proven to be highly effective when paired with therapy. For this reason, I work closely with a board certified psychiatrist with a background in internal medicine and over 30 years of experience. We are able to provide top notch holistic mental health services and streamline our clients' care.

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 management of existing prescriptions or new medications

— Lily Allen, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in oakland, CA
 

I take a holistic approach to medication management. I understand that choosing to make medication part of your treatment plan may be scary at times. I hope to support you in this part of your healing. It's important that you are well informed and that you feel comfortable working with me regarding your medication. I make sure that you are medically stable to initiate or continue medication by monitoring your blood work and symptoms. It's important I listen to your improvement and your history.

— Amanda Sadat, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Andover, MA

At the initial session, I will conduct a thorough evaluation that will help to decide if I will recommend medication. However, each person needs to come to that place on their own. I don't expect that every initial session will end with a prescription. Some individuals need time to process the encounter and decide if they want to move forward with medication. And that's just fine. Initial sessions are 60-90 minutes; f/u sessions are usually 30 minutes.

— Shannon Dingle, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
 

I specialize in supporting those who wish to work towards tapering off of prescribed psychiatric medications. This may not be for everyone and that’s perfectly okay. But for those who have this as a goal, I am able to offer a unique understanding and specialized support around the myriad of non-medical challenges that can arise while navigating the process.

— Leela Ehrhart, Counselor in Downingtown, PA

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.

Psychiatric medication management. I do NOT prescribe controlled substances in my practice (such as, Adderall, Vyvanse, Xanax, Valium).

— Haulek Tawmging, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Seattle, WA

I have years of experience working with patients to find the right dosage, frequency, and types of medication for them, and know that Prairie takes medication management very seriously.

— Georges Jean-Pierre, Psychiatrist
 

“I’ve tried everything, and it hasn’t worked.” Repeatedly hearing this statement as a clinical psychologist, lead me to go back to school for my psychopharmacology degree and get my medical license. I saw that therapy alone couldn’t help everyone and the majority of doctors prescribing psych meds had no expertise in the field.
