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 Practitioner (PMHNP) has specialty training in treating common mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar disorders, PTSD, and more through the use of psychotropic medications and values a holistic approach to medicine. Tara cares deeply about our clients, spends time to really hear their concerns, works hard to give clients adequate medication without “over-medicating”, and offers integrative methods for treating many mental health concerns.

Tara treats individuals 8 years old and up for all general mental health related conditions. She is in network with BCBS, UHC/Optum, UMR, Cigna, Aetna, Medicare, Medcost, Tricare, and VA.

We are also 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.​
