Services and Fees
Adolescents and Young Adults
A complete psychiatric evaluation involves a 60-75 minute session focused on presenting symptoms, past psychiatric history, medical history, and current medications. It will sometimes involve obtaining additional information from prior treatment providers, current providers, or family. Based on this information we will discuss diagnosis, treatment recommendations, and alternatives, if applicable. It's important that you feel informed and empowered to make decisions about your health and I aim to provide as much support and information as I can.
Fee: $450-60-75 minute psychiatric evaluation
Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation
Psychopharmacology is the practice of prescribing medication to treat various psychiatric symptoms. At the beginning of treatment, appointments usually occur monthly. Each session usually lasts 30 minutes and includes review of symptoms and side effects. Sometimes, I will have you complete a brief questionnaires so that we can objectively monitor progress. I will also provide supportive psychotherapy drawing from psychodynamic, mindfulness and CBT informed therapies. Once symptoms are well-controlled, it is not uncommon to meet less frequently, though usually no less than once every three months.
Fee: $200-30 minute med management plus psychotherapy
$125-15 minute med refill visit
Treatment of substance use disorders requires a comprehensive approach which can include medication, psychotherapy, family therapy, group therapy, social support services and recovery groups, as well as exercise and nutrition. Everyone's addiction is different and no one treatment fits all. Together, with support from family and friends, we will design a program that is right for you.
