PSYCHIATRIC-MEDICATION-MANAGEMENT

Psychiatric Medication management

Medications can play a role in treating several mental health conditions. Treatment may also include psychotherapy. In some cases, psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment option.

Choosing the right treatment plan should be based on a person’s individual needs and medical situation and under a mental health professional’s care. During your first appointment, you and your healthcare provider will agree on the course of treatment that best fits your situation.

Treatments that include psychiatric medication management can be done online and in-person.

Psychotherapy/Counseling

Psychotherapy helps a person identify and change troubling emotions and behavior.

You might be dealing with severe or long-term stress from a job or family situation, the loss of a loved one, or relationship or other family issues. Or you may have symptoms with no physical explanation: changes in sleep or appetite, low energy, a lack of interest or pleasure in activities that you once enjoyed, persistent irritability, or a sense of discouragement or hopelessness that won’t go away.

You may be recommended psychotherapy as a first treatment or to go along with medication.

Treatments that include psychotherapy/counseling can be done online and in-person.

Group Therapy

Depending on your situation, group therapy can be an ideal choice for addressing your concerns and making positive changes in your life.

Group therapy involves a therapist who leads group patients who meet for a pre-determined number of sessions. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only.

Groups are designed to target a specific problem, please see below a description of the groups that we manage

Group #1

Act 2
Often people reach a point in their lives when their situation changes and they struggle with what they will do next. For some, they have been doing the same work for a long time and don’t want to continue to do the same job for the rest of their careers; for others, children go off to college and the person wants to start a career; sometimes people retire and find they still want to work and make a contribution but in a job that may demand less than their prior career.A group setting can be a supportive network for helping people figure it out.

Group #2

Moving Beyond Infidelity
Whether a couple stays together (or not) after an affair, many people experience feelings similar to trauma when they discover their partner has had an affair. They often report intrusive thoughts, mood swings, anger and hurt. They describe questioning their entire relationship because of the affair and individuals feel their self esteem has been damaged.

What is Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy?

In a Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy (HCH), you will have the opportunity to address a wide range of issues ranging from past trauma to phobias to relationship issues by learning how to access information from your subconscious mind. Learn how to enter into a deeply relaxed state and uncover hidden beliefs and conclusions that contribute to ongoing unhealthy patterns in your current life. As you shed that which no longer serves you, the healing process also provides you with the opportunity to develop unique new resources, coping skills, and mindset that will allow becoming successful in creating the life that you want for yourself, the life that you know is right for you.
