Upon scheduling your appointment, you will gain access to the patient portal and will receive the intake paperwork electronically to fill out prior to your first appointment. We require this to be completed 24 hrs before your first appointment so that your provider can review this paperwork. This allows for the first appointment to be focused on making sure we arrive at the correct diagnosis and decide on a mutually agreed upon treatment plan that both you and your provider are confident about. The first appointment is what is called an Intake appointment. We will have 60 minutes to go over in detail your history, past treatment, and current symptoms to properly diagnose you and develop a treatment plan. Typically, the treatment plan will involve lifestyle changes (nutrition or exercise changes), lab work (blood work), psychotherapy, and medications. If you are interested in functional approaches, supplements, neuromodulation techniques, or alternative treatments may also be applied. Alternative therapies include mindfulness, yoga, acupuncture or other non-traditional therapies that many patients benefit from. Neuromodulation may include TMS, Neurofeedback, TNS, or tDCS devices. If you are interested in or need a referral for ECT we will make that referral as well.
