"Psychopharmacology is often used to treat psychiatric disorders, depending on the severity of your symptom"s medications may be warranted. However, it is important to understand that while a medication may work for one person, may not work for a different person. Also, different people require different doses of medication, and it may take time to find the right medication AND the right dose. I work closely with clients to understand their treatment goals, and their thoughts and feelings about medications. I often present options, treatment rationales and education to help guide clients in making informed decisions that feel adequate for them."
