Psychiatry is a medical field focused on understanding and treating mental health issues. Psychopharmacology is the practice of using medications to help the mind, emotions, and behaviors.

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in mental health and substance use disorders (SUD). Our psychiatrists are experts in providing both medical recommendations and psychotherapy. We offer treatment of a wide range of psychiatric conditions.
Choosing whether you want to see a psychiatrist or psychologist can depend on what is most beneficial to the individual. There are certain mental health disorders that are more easily treated with medication or therapy. No matter which area of treatment you pursue, each person on our team is superbly qualified to provide the highest and reliable quality of care. The only way to know for sure is to talk with your primary care physician or insurance. You can always contact us to help make the process easier for you or your loved one.
Research indicates that for many patients, a combination of therapy and psychotropic medication can be effective in treating a variety of mental health issues. Because each person’s needs are unique, our psychiatrists take time to carefully understand each patient’s background and respectfully listen to concerns and questions about using medication to manage symptoms.
Our psychiatrists also consider ways that therapy can complement medication use by helping the patient develop skills and find support to create a well-rounded treatment plan. Psychiatrists can also provide consultation and support that adjust to the patients evolving needs. For example, if a patient is interested in discussing whether they should stop taking a prescribed medication.
There are several types of psychotropic medications that are used for a variety of reasons. This includes both short-term relief from mental health symptoms, longer-term stabilization, and improvement of mood. Depending on the patient’s diagnosis and preferences for psychotropic medications as part of their treatment plan, medication management can range from a few weeks to several years. No matter the time frame, our psychologists are committed to supporting your treatment through its duration.
Psychotropic medications can provide increased effectiveness in managing mental health symptoms. Certain medications can also help with decreasing triggers and cravings for people struggling with substance use. We believe that these benefits are more achievable when providers are attentive and responsive to each individual’s mental health needs and treatment goals.
