During this appointment the patient will be provided with the information and education necessary to allow for a proper informed decision regarding treatment options – such as psychotherapy and/or psychotropic medications. We will continue to focus on evidence-based techniques to help with symptom management. There will also be discussion about medication efficacy and tolerability which may lead to adjusting, adding, or stopping medication. The philosophy of this practictioner, when utilizing medication, is to prescribe the lowest dose that treats the most amount of symptoms with the least amount of side effects. The length of time can vary between appointment and are dependent on stability of symptoms and potential need for psychotherapy that maybe incorporated into treatment.
There has been a lot of success utilizing a coaching mentality, the evidence-based techniques I find I use the most include Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused models. Another gold standard of mine is a combination of Cognitive and Behavioral therapy approaches. I also see a lot of benefit in employing art, music, movement, and meditation practices regularly. With my psychopharmacomanagement background, I find it advantageous to still apply psychoeducation when a person prefers more of a psychodynamic model.
