While we believe that medication should not be the first choice for treating mental disorders, we know there are instances where it can be helpful and sometimes necessary for one to take medication. Medication can help stabilize you while you learn effective coping strategies. In some cases, one may elect to safely wean off the medication under the supervision of a qualified medical professional. Serious mental illnesses typically require frequent medication adjustments and monitoring. Working with a compassionate and knowledgeable medical professional who understands you and your needs and preferences is essential. Listening to your concerns and collaborating with you on what medications may be the most helpful to you while minimizing side effects is what we believe is the best path forward when taking psychotropic medication in conjuncture with psychotherapy. With your permission, your psychotherapist and your prescriber will work together to ensure you receive the best care possible.
We provide referrals to medical providers for medication evaluations, medication monitoring, and other health care needs.
