Initial Consultation 

 

Meet with a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), specializing in medication management in an outpatient, non-crisis setting. During a 60 minute initial consultation, the provider will perform a full evaluation of needs and formulate a customized treatment plan, which may include medications, therapy, genetic testing, labs, and nutritional or herbal recommendations. Most medications can be prescribed during that initial consultation and sent to the requested pharmacy for pick up within 24 hours. Follow-up visits are scheduled 2-4 weeks after the initial consultation to discuss the medication's efficacy as well as any side-effects. If medication is not wanted or not medically appropriate, clients may engage in individual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The practice offers telemedicine appointments through a free, HIPAA compliant app, available on smart phones and computers.

 

Follow-up and medication management 

 

During your follow up appointment, the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) will evaluate your treatment plan to make sure you are progressing towards your goals. Medications may be adjusted to achieve the desired outcome for each patient, which may involve dosing changes, change of medication, or adding and subtracting medications, as needed. If medically appropriate, controlled substances may be prescribed. Those engaged in therapy will be reevaluated each session and recommendations made for additional follow up visits or discharge depending on goal achievement.
