    I’ve never taken medication for my emotions or thoughts. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who need medication weak?

    Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the courage to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. In our work together, I’ll help you explore and identify your strengths and how to implement them to reduce the influence of the problems you are facing.

    What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

    The difference is between someone who can listen and empathize, and someone who has the training and experience to treat your symptoms. Our work together is completely confidential, so you won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, and you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.

    Why can’t I just go to therapy, why would I also need medication?

    More often than not people do the best when they utilize both therapy and medication together. There are some aspects of many mental health problems that are the result of chemicals in the brain being off balance. If you go to therapy alone but continue to experience symptoms, it may be time to consider a more robust treatment plan, including medication.

    How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

    Because each person has different issues and goals for treatment, it will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my medication approach to your specific needs.

    How long will it take?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and depending on the medication we choose it can vary greatly.
