Initial Psychiatric Evaluation
An initial psychiatric evaluation with a psychiatrist is scheduled for 90-minutes. Children, teens, and adult patients living at home, will generally require 1-2 additional 45-minutes sessions in order to complete a psychiatric evaluation prior to beginning treatment. Adults not living with their parents will generally require one additional 45-minutes session prior to starting treatment. A comprehensive evaluation will ensure safe practices by collecting all the necessary information including a medical history, blood test, and genetic testing if medically necessary. The aim of the initial session is to provide an assessment of your (or your child's) mental health needs and to determine the best available treatment options.
Following the initial psychiatric evaluation (medication management) follow-up visits are scheduled for 45-minute appointments, with frequency depending upon your needs and medical necessity. Follow up appointments may be reduced to 25-minutes medication management visits on individual basis after treatment is well-established. This service is established after completion of your psychiatric evaluation.
Individual therapy is a joint, one-on-one, process between a therapist and a client to collaborate on the client’s mental health care. The therapist and client will work together to create treatment plans and goals and help the client work through their concerns.
Couples therapy is a form of therapy designed to help romantic partners work through relational distress, conflict, and dissatisfaction. Throughout the course of couples therapy, the therapist may see one partner or both partners, but the “identified client” is the couple as a whole unit and the purpose of treatment is to help the couple address their relationship problems.
Family therapy is a form of therapy designed to help families work through issues pertaining to the functioning of the family unit. Family therapy may involve all or some family members. Some individuals may pursue family therapy while receiving their own individual therapy.
