Nurse Practitioners primarily use medication and include small amounts of therapy. We may also use assessments scales to determine the frequency and intensity of symptoms.
During the Initial Assessment, the client communicate the thoughts, feeling and issues that caused concern and may have altered their lives. I identify the symptoms that are disclosed, which help to identify a diagnosis and develop a plan of treatment. I begin learning about the client: traumatic events, illnesses, treatment, fears, addictions, successes, failures, family, education - as much as possible and build on this knowledge over the therapeutic relationship. I then recommend appropriate to restore mental and emotional health. Follow up visits last for a shorter period as we continue building the foundation and perfect the treatment course.+
