During your initial psychiatric evaluation, your Nurse Practitioner will gather a thorough psychological and social history, past and current medical history, past psychiatric treatment history, current symptoms and functioning, and review your goals for treatment. Your Nurse Practitioner will discuss initial treatment options, including psychiatric medication, complementary and alternative interventions, and possible blood work or genetic testing.
During follow-up appointments, we will review your medications, treatment, progress, and overall mental health. You and your Nurse Practitioner will work together to determine if any adjustments need to be made to your medications or other treatment interventions.
In the beginning, while we are trying to stabilize symptoms or address side effects, follow-ups may be as frequently as every two to four weeks. As treatment progresses, appointments may be every one to three months. You and your Nurse Practitioner will determine the frequency of your appointments together, as a team.
At Restorative Psychiatry & Wellness, we value the importance of complementary and alternative medicine practices as part of your overall mental health treatment. We will safely review and discuss supplements, vitamins, nutrition, gut health, exercise, meditation, yoga practices, etc. that can be safely and effectively implemented to boost overall wellness.
At Restorative Psychiatry & Wellness, we take a holistic approach to mental health, focusing on the health of the entire body and mind. Therefore, your Nurse Practitioner may order blood work to rule out any possible physical/medical etiologies that may be contributing to your mental health symptoms, such as hormone levels, thyroid function, Vitamin D levels, B12/folate levels.
Your Nurse Practitioner may recommend pharmacogenetic testing in order to better understand how your body metabolizes and responds to psychiatric medications. Pharmacogenetic testing will also identify any mutations in your MTHFR gene, which is responsible for converting folic acid into its active form, L-methylfolate. L-methylfolate plays an important role in making neurotransmitters (i.e. serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine) that are involved in mood and other important mental health functions.
