I have worked in the mental health field since 2002 and have over 15,000 hours of face-to-face time with clients. As an experienced clinician, I have learned to recognize the patterns of mental health conditions. My goal is to give you a clear sense of the problems that may be impacting you and explain the best treatment options for your particular circumstance.
During our first initial appointment, we will discuss current and past mental health symptoms, previous treatments and review your medical history. I will provide you with an understanding of the problem areas most fitting with your particular symptoms and if you meet the criteria for a mental health condition.
Typically by the end of the first appointment, I am able to provide specific treatment recommendations, including the appropriateness of using medication to treat the problem area. If I think therapy will help with your particular situation, I will explain the type of therapy to look for that best matches your circumstances.
For clients that are recommended medication, I will provide ongoing medication follow-up appointments. Initially, when first starting a medication, I ask that we meet within two weeks of starting the medication. After the first follow-up appointment, we usually stretch appointments out to a monthly frequency. When we are no longer making changes to medications, we can meet every three months.
The following problem areas are specialties that I have had the most experience diagnosing and treating. I can provide ongoing medication management for these particular problem areas. If you are not sure what problem areas are impacting you, we will determine this during our first initial intake appointment.
