What is the first appointment like?
Your first appointment is an evaluation. It is typically 60 minutes long. You will be asked a lot of questions about your concerns, symptoms, past medical and mental health history. At the end of your appointment, you will work with your provider to formulate a treatment plan.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

  • A list of all of your current medications and/or supplements, along with their doses. If easier, you may bring your prescription bottles. Your provider needs to know everything you are taking even if it is not related to mental health.

  • A list of past psychiatric medications, doses and, if known, the length of time you were on them.

  • Contact information for your primary care provider, therapist, and any other relevant provider (such as OB if pregnant).

  • Lab results from within the past 12 months

  • Previous genetic reports, neurological reports, psychological testing, etc.

How often will I need to be seen?
For medication management, patients are typically seen once a month until we agree you are stable on the medication. Follow-up appointments are then every three months. For psychotherapy, you will typically schedule once a week or every other week. Once we have worked through your goals, your appointments may be scheduled less frequently.


Will I need to do blood work?
If you have not had any blood work done in the last 6 months, you will be given you a lab
slip to take to a local lab such as LabCorp. Otherwise, you may sign a release for us to
obtain lab results from your primary care provider or specialist.
