Focused on You. All of You. Medication management should involve the whole patient. When confined to a hospital setting, often providers are under pressure to meet a productivity goal. This means each provider must see a certain number of patients per day. Often, if this number is not met the provider is at risk of losing their job. I believe each person is unique and the time it takes to provide care should not be dependent on how much time a provider is allowed; rather, how much time the provider and patient need for healing.
The brief “med check” practice leaves little time for the healing work of connecting humanely, communicating fully, wholly understanding, admiring & inspiring strengths, encouraging hope, and building patients’ motivation and potential to take an active role in their healthcare, all of which help establish a trusting relationship.
Therapy & Medication Management: A Winning Combination As a licensed mental health therapist and a prescribing advanced practice nurse practitioner I believe therapy and medication make a nice married couple. If you already have a therapist, you do not need to change. We can communicate to coordinate your best care. If not, I am able to provide therapy & medication in one convenient appointment. This is about you, for you.
