What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
After your first session with me, you can expect to gain a better understanding of your mental health concerns and the treatment options available to you. As the Psychiatric NP, I will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs/preferences. Moving forward, you can expect to receive ongoing support and guidance from me as your provider, as you work toward your treatment goals. This may involve regular check-ins, medication management, therapy sessions, or other forms of treatment as needed. Over time, working with me/the provider can help you gain insight into your mental health, learn new coping skills, and make progress toward achieving better overall well-being. You may experience improvements in your mood, relationships, and daily functioning.
