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).

I offer medication management for those who make the choice to include medications as part of their therapeutic journey. My goal for you is to keep your medications and doses as low as possible so that you feel a therapeutic effect but still feel like YOU. Medications are not a quick fix but they can be helpful to make our moods, emotions, and difficult life transitions more manageable.

“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.

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.
