You have been struggling for long enough-- struggling with depression, low energy, anxious thoughts and feelings and the sneaking suspicion that these things won't improve on their own. While you are someone who believes in advocating for yourself, it has been difficult to find the answers for all that you're experiencing with your mental health. I believe that you deserve to work with a medication manager who understands and values the combination of therapy and medications-- who believes in your comprehensive care to finally turn the corner in your mental health and not look back.

A healthy patient/provider relationship includes active communication. If you thoroughly relay to me all of your concerns, together we can work on a treatment plan with an end goal of optimal mental health. There is more to mental health care then just prescribing and managing medication. While this is often necessary, a healthy approach to mental health is to consider all treatments, including testing/evaluations and therapy/counseling. My current patients often say they appreciate my willingness and determination to really listen to your needs, instead of rushing into a quick diagnosis and care plan.
