It is well established that long-term solutions to mental and emotional problems and the pain they cause cannot be solved solely by medication. Good therapy goes beyond just treating the symptom to address causes of distress and behavioral patterns that block progress. However, in some cases, a combination of medication and therapy is a sound approach to treatment.
For clients who would like to explore or be evaluated for medication that may help manage symptoms, I collaborate with medical professionals to coordinate care and provide you with the best treatment possible. I do not prescribe medication.
If you desire a referral to a specialist who can evaluate and discuss whether medication may help you with your symptoms, or for a review of medications you were prescribed previously, please talk with me about this during your appointment.
