Change In Providers?

Many of our NP’s clients are already on medication but were not happy with their care, the wait times for appointments, or the single-minded approach that their primary doctor or psychiatrist gave.  Others are happy with their doctor but want undivided attention from a medical professional who can spend time with them and then interact with their doctors or their therapist as an advocate.

Our Approach

If you or your child are on medication or considering medication for mental health or behavioral issues you may benefit from the holistic approach that our NP’s offer to guide you through the decision and find the right combination of therapy, behavioral changes, emotional support and/or medication.

New client evaluations will typically start with lab work to detect vitamin deficiencies, anemia, and thyroid problems that are so common but often go undetected and can have big effects on mood and mental health. You will be screened for sleep, nutrition, and electronic usage and offered support with education and lifestyle modifications as needed. (This is especially important for those school age children!).

Are you uneasy about medication for mental health issues for you or for your child?  You will get all the facts and your concerns will be heard in a relaxed non-rushed appointment. We will address your apprehension and help ease fears and misconceptions as well as empower you to be an active participant in you or your child’s care. You can decide if you want to try a medicine or a non-pharmacological approach first. No judgment
