I am a psychiatrist practicing with individuals experiencing a wide range of life stressors and feelings of sadness and anxiety. I believe that the human mind is more complex to be treated with medications only. My practice is based on treatment with psychotherapy +/- medications depending on each individual case. The visits are an hour long and the wait time in my waiting room is usually no longer than 10 minutes. I accept a limited number of patients at a time to ensure my availability to my patients.

I can help you figure out the best medication to take for your symptoms. I have been practicing the art of psychopharmacology for 17 years. Getting on the right medication can be life changing. Symptoms of anxiety, depression, mood swings and ADHD can be reduced dramatically with medication. Many of my patients are surprised how well the medication can work. If you have tried therapy unsuccessfully, you may need to start a medication regimen that only an experienced psychiatric NP can put together. I see adults age 18 and up.

Arthur "Eddie" Brouse is a board-certified, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse specializing in psychiatric mental health, at Advanced TelePsych. In his own words, "Mental illness is something that is extremely personal, yet often affects more than just one person. Worry, sadness, or feeling overwhelmed are only a few symptoms which cause difficulty for a person to function normally. Is there something that isn’t quite right which causes you trouble? Have you noticed your mood or issues have been affecting not just you, but also those around you? Are you isolating, or feeling alone? Do you feel the roller coaster is out of control?"

Online Psychiatrists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
