Mental Health Medication Management
Medications may be indicated when your mental symptoms are not responsive to psychotherapy alone. When a mental illness markedly impacts your ability to work, maintain interpersonal relationships, or properly care for your basic needs, medication may offer much-needed relief. Overall, we are strong proponents of the bio-psycho-social model of medical treatment. Treatment that considers your biological status, genetics, your psychological development, and social issues together will yield the best chance for success in achieving your goal.
