Psychiatric Medication Management
Family Essentials Counseling is announcing exciting news!
We are now able to offer psychiatric services with Anna Caruso, DNP, ARNP PMHNP-BC, a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner who specializes in psychiatric medication management to help clients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, thought disorders, eating disorders, postpartum mood/anxiety disturbances, and/or other mental health concerns for clients of all ages.
Medication management involves evaluation and determination of whether psychotropic medications, non-pharmacological, or complementary interventions are indicated for the client with consistent follow-up appointments to substantiate whether a treatment regimen is beneficial to continue or modify. Adjustments may be made to the plan of care to increase the rate of recovery and enhance the quality of life. The goal is to find the right balance for the client. We offer a one hour, in-person, initial intake assessment focused on diagnosis and treatment planning. Then we offer 15 or 30 minute, in-person, follow-up appointments.
We also have partnered with Genesight. This pharmacogenomic test analyzes how your genetic make-up may affect medication outcomes. These test results can inform your provider how you could react to, or process drugs frequently used to treat problems, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other psychiatric disorders.
We appreciate the opportunity to help you with your psychiatric medication management needs. Please contact our psychiatric administrative assistant at 509-957-2027 to discuss availability and billing options. We look forward to hearing from you!
