We will provide you with a link to your patient portal where you can view your next appointment, view billing, fill out rating scales, as well as complete intake forms. Your patient portal also provides a HIPAA compliant portal to communicate with your doctor(s).
These are regularly scheduled appointments to assure the optimal dosage and medication regimen.
Care is taken to treat patients as individuals regarding specific diagnosis, wants and needs, and ongoing treatment planning.
Comprehensive Diagnostic Intake
This is a 90 minute initial appointment. We take time to completely understand your concerns and to work together to find the treatment strategy that best fits your needs and preferences.
All psychiatric intakes include diagnostic feedback, treatment recommendations, and prescriptions (if warranted).
Weekly individual therapy involves 45-minute weekly sessions, in which we check in about your mood, progress toward goals, and teach and practice new coping skills.
For youth under 18, weekly individual therapy also involves checking in with parents during most sessions and some parent-only and/or family sessions.
- Certain anxiety disorders, such as specific phobias, agoraphobia, and panic disorder can be effectively treated in intensive formats. In this case we offer the option to start intensive services during a break from work or school (i.e., summer, winter, or spring break) to set up for success when returning back to a normal schedule. Contact us to discuss options if you or a loved one is suffering from a Specific Phobia, Panic Disorder, or Agoraphobia.
If you currently do not feel like your current treatment is optimal, feel like another provider did not take the time to fully understand your situation, or simply would like a second opinion before deciding on a treatment we are happy to assist in providing diagnostic clarification.
