This three-part intensive program is designed for individuals, couples and families who feel stuck in their current life or ongoing psychotherapy.
Being a parent or a step-parent is a difficult and often thankless task. Many people expect to simply know what their children need, and find themselves baffled by their kids’ tempter tantrums, fears, mood swings and misbehavior. We are here to help.
Our Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, Joseph Montgomery and Deirdre Denholm provide evaluation and treatment of mental health conditions in a holistic and person-centered model, and prescribes and monitors psychotropic medications, if appropriate, for patients 16 years old and older. Additionally, Joseph administers and interprets GeneSight, a non-invasive pharmacogenomic test that analyzes how your genes may affect effectiveness of the prescribed medication. Since everyone’s DNA is unique, GeneSight is a valuable tool for clinicians to predict how YOU react to medication for anxiety, depression, ADHD and other psychiatric conditions.
