And Medication Management
Our integrative psychiatric providers work collaboratively with their client’s care team to promote mental health and wellness. They approach each client holistically by assessing their physical health, current symptoms, and life stressors. Their experience and training in psychiatric medication management allows them to provide a comprehensive evaluation and to select medication or prescription-grade nutritional supplements to target symptoms and optimize physical health.
Our nurse practitioners pride themselves on whole-body wellness. They take ample time with you to assess and understand your individual needs and may provide coaching for healthy life-style choices. In addition to or in place of medication, they may suggest alternative treatments such as vitamin supplements, nutritional suggestions, exercise, mind-body therapies, or aromatherapy, to get you back to feeling… SIMPLY WHOLE.
Serenity’s psychiatric providers offer genetic testing through GeneSight. GeneSight allows your provider to obtain information about how genetic variations in your DNA may affect your response to certain medications. This can be particularly beneficial when multiple trials of medications have not been effective. With a simple cheek swab, your nurse practitioner can obtain integral information about how your specific genes may affect your medication outcomes. The GeneSight test analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. Results of this testing can help enhance your practitioner’s understanding of how your body breaks down or responds to medications so they may better select a medication that is right for you. Talk to your prescriber to learn more about GeneSight or visit genesight.com for more information.
