What to Expect From Medication Management Services
At Talking Circles Therapy & Wellness, LLC we recognize psychiatric medication can play a valuable, helpful role in the lives of many of our clients. Medication management services start with a psychiatric evaluation and based on your diagnosis, your provider may prescribe medication, if appropriate and desired. If you already have a diagnosis and are taking medications, your provider will spend time talking with you about your mental health history, concerns, current medications, how it’s working for you, and what effects the medication(s) is having in your daily life.
We value a holistic approach to treatment at Talking Circles Therapy & Wellness, LLC, as mentioned above so recommendations for services, such as, individual or group counseling, may also be included in your treatment plan. All of this can be done in close consultation with your therapist or other providers, creating a well-rounded treatment plan.
Your provider will work with you to ensure that the medication has the desired effect, adjusting the dosage or prescription if necessary.
We provide medication management services for a variety of mental health conditions, including (but not limited to):
- Trauma Recovery
- Sleep Disorders
