Medication and Supplement Management
Lisa and Rudy’s initial interview with a new client, whether for medication management or alternative treatments, encompasses a discussion of your history, physiology, and lifestyle. They believe in a comprehensive approach to working with you and, with your permission, will collaborate with your family practice physicians, the school counselor, or other healthcare providers to enhance communication and positive outcomes for you. Lisa and Rudy will sometimes use laboratory testing or other diagnostic techniques to determine the source of the symptoms you may be having. Together, you and your Nurse Practitioner will formulate a plan to improve your mental health which may include therapeutic lifestyle changes, supplements, and prescriptive medications. If it is your goal to taper off your medications, Lisa and Rudy will also work with you on tapering off psychiatric medications, and use alternative approaches to support mental well being.

-A 1-1.5hr in depth interview exploring physical symptoms, lifestyle choices, nutrition and mental health questions. We believe that taking the time to explore contributing factors as well as current symptoms allows us to form a plan to move a client back to health and well being.

Collaboration with your primary care physician, therapist and/or functional medicine physician to enhance the healing process.
