Initial Evaluation

Please be prepared to spend at least one hour with your practitioner for your initial evaluation.

Initial psychiatric evaluation includes a full mental health history, past treatment modalities, psychosocial assessment, assessment of sleep and mood patterns and discussion of any physiological changes affecting your mental health. This evaluation may be conducted by a licensed professional counselor, licensed clinical social worker, master’s level psychological associate, psychiatrist, or psychiatric nurse practitioner. Medication may or may not be recommended and/or prescribed.

Medication Management

Psychiatric medications can be helpful in reducing symptoms which decrease a person’s ability to cope with life stressors. Some people who come to our clinic are already prescribed medications by their primary care practitioner. All our clinicians are familiar with psychiatric medications and can help with management, education, and understanding. Any new prescriptions needed to assist treatment will be prescribed by either a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner. Medication management is often paired with education to help you more fully understand any mental health concerns, which in turn empowers participation in your own wellness.

Therapy & Counseling Services

Often people come to our clinic to access help with individual, marriage, family, and other relationship issues. Our Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Licensed Professional Counselors are prepared to help you navigate life’s challenges, promote insight and make positive change. We offer individual, couples, family and group therapy settings. Therapy types range from interpersonal to more structured modalities such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.) Partnering with medication for greater effectiveness, patients can reduce the need for increasing intervention and gain coping skills to help aid in healing.

Advocacy

Systems issues often play a critical role in life’s greatest challenges. When needed, our staff and practitioners are ready to provide insight, education and support to help manage the interface between systems and individuals.
