Psychiatric Medication Management
At Mind & Body Therapeutic Connections, we take a holistic approach to physical and emotional wellness. With that, we recognize the role adjunctive medications can play in meeting specific wellness goals, when indicated. We aim to provide medication to those who need it, while also incorporating valuable skills, life changes, and other holistic avenues that help individuals to improve their overall mental health and wellness.
Our board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners, have specialty training in treating common mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar disorders, PTSD, and more through the use of psychotropic medications but they value a holistic approach as well. They care deeply about our clients, spend time to really hear their concerns, work hard to give clients adequate medication without “over-medicating”, and offer integrative methods for treating many mental health concerns.
We are pleased to offer the GeneSight ® Psychotropic test! Fewer than 50% of individuals with depression respond to their first medication. Medication trial and error can feel frustrating. GeneSight ® is a genetics-based decision support tool that can help your Nurse Practitioner get a better understanding of what depression medications may require dose adjustments, may be less likely to work, or may have an increased risk of side effects based on a person’s genetic makeup. If medications have failed you in the past, your current medication is not working, or is causing unwanted side effects then GeneSight ® testing may be right for you. Contact us at 919-791-5611 option 1 to get started today.
