-Mental Health is not a destination, but a process-
Taking Care of You
Your initial visit is 60-90 minutes and includes a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. This time allows me to get to know you, discover your goals for treatment, and develop an individualized plan of care.
Mental Illness is not a Personal Failure
Mental illnesses are caused by a variety of factors, including chemical imbalances in the brain. Medications work on these imbalances to reduce symptoms. I will work with you to discuss treatment options and address any concerns. Together we can develop a plan that works well for you and for the life you want to create.
You Are More Than Your Symptoms
Holistic care emphasizes the partnership between provider and patient and encompasses physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs. Medication is only one component of holistic care. It is important to explore elements such as diet, exercise, sleep, spirituality, support, and positive coping skills to achieve the best health possible.
Changing Lives Through Genetic Insight
GeneSight is a pharmacogenetic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations that may affect your outcomes with certain medications. The results of the test can show which medications may require dose adjustments, may be less likely to work, or may have an increased risk of side effects based on your genetic makeup. You can find more information about the GeneSight test at www.genesight.com/product.
