What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Myra Gaius-Anyaegbu places high importance on ensuring that the client is fully involved in formulating their treatment plan. Your first session will focus on performing a thorough psychiatric evaluation where I learn about you and work with you to create a plan that fits your needs. At the end of your session, you will have a clear understanding of any diagnoses made, treatment plan, treatment benefits and alternatives to treatment if indicated.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize a variety of methods and tools to ensure a well rounded treatment approach. They include but are not limited to psychiatric assessment, diagnostic screening tools such as the PHQ-9, GAD-7, NICHQ Vanderbilt Assessment Scales, Talk Therapy and Medication Management.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I listen to my clients and provide a safe and therapeutic environment where you can verbalize your needs as you feel comfortable to. I have worked with clients across the lifespan in different clinical settings, including out-patient clinics, in-patient hospitals, and partial hospitalization programs(PHP), and I am equipped to effectively assess and work with you to create treatment plan and provide recommendations tailored to your specific situation.
