Psychiatry and Medication Management

We understand medication isn't for everyone, but for some, it's a critical aspect of achieving progress and finding relief.

Collaborating with the right prescriber is critical.

Our medication providers work closely with our therapists and coaches. We understand the importance of having a strong treatment team that has your best interest at heart.

Are you feeling like you're in a dark, lonely hole? Does it feel like there's no way out? If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, or a personality disorder, we want you to know that you don't have to do this alone. At Brave, we offer psychiatry and medication management services that are tailored to your individual needs. With our expert care, you too can look forward to improved mental health and well-being.

Why Psychiatry?

Psychiatry is about more than just treating mental illness. It's about exploring the depths of what makes us who we are. The mind is an infinitely complex organ, and trying to understand it fully is a lifelong pursuit. Every day I get to engage in thought-provoking discussions with patients about what makes them tick. It's incredibly rewarding work.

Of course, like any field of medicine, psychiatry has its challenges. There's still so much we don't know about mental illness, and finding effective treatments for some conditions can be incredibly difficult. But it's precisely because of these challenges that we chose to pursue the psychiatric specialty. Every day is a new opportunity to learn, grow, and help people in need.

Psychiatry for Adults versus Children

The treatment of mental health issues for adults and children may vary due to their distinct psychological and emotional characteristics. In contrast to adults, who are often more vocal and cooperative in the process of diagnosis, children may need additional stimulation and observation.

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Our experienced and skilled psychiatrists ensure that every child under our care receives personalized attention and support to help them understand their perspectives. We believe that our approach not only promotes their recovery but also helps build resilience and empowers them to lead happy, fulfilling lives.

At Brave Counseling and Psychiatry, we provide a compassionate and nurturing environment where we work closely with you and your child to ensure they receive the best care possible. Contact us today and take the first step in helping your child achieve optimal mental health.

Adult Psychiatry

One of the crucial skills that adult psychiatrists must possess is the ability to build rapport with their patients. As we know, trust is essential in any doctor-patient relationship, and this is particularly true in mental health. Adults who seek psychiatric help have often lived with their mental health conditions for years, if not decades. Therefore, it's vital to establish a level of trust and empathy with them to help them open up about their issues.

When treating adult patients, we must keep in mind that they come from different walks of life. Some have careers and families, while others are students or retirees. It's crucial to understand how their daily routines and lifestyles may impact their mental health conditions and treatment. Additionally, we must acknowledge that societal and cultural norms influence their thinking and behaviors. Being culturally aware and competent is a key aspect of providing effective psychiatric care to adults.

The diagnosis and assessment of mental health conditions in adults require extensive training, experience, and expertise. We must consider all possible causes, including underlying medical conditions and environmental factors. Many mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, have physical symptoms that can manifest as headaches, fatigue, and stomach issues. A thorough evaluation of physical symptoms is necessary to rule out any underlying health issues that could be causing or worsening mental health conditions.

When it comes to treatment, adult psychiatry offers a range of interventions, including medications, therapy, and support groups. Each patient is unique, and therefore, their treatment plan must be tailored to their specific needs. An adult's level of insight and motivation can impact the effectiveness of treatment, so it's essential to collaborate with them and involve them in their care.
