A psychiatric evaluation is a tool used to measure thinking, reasoning, cognitive function, behaviors, thought processes, memory, and emotions. The goal is to include the patient in determining the best course of treatment for their specific goals. Your first visit at Evolution Psychiatry will be a comprehensive mental health evaluation to review your history and goals then evaluate the best treatment options for your specific needs. This first evaluation can take about 60-90 mins and involves a thorough review of any risk factors or co-morbidities that may need to be addressed first, in order to provide the best therapeutic outcomes.
Psychotropic medication may often be beneficial in alleviating symptoms in the acute phases of distress but is not a long-term goal of our practice because we understand that the body has natural ways of processing and healing traumas. Just like a wound on your skin takes time to heal, the natural intelligence of your psyche works much the same way and needs to process the disruptive energy. Managing medications includes a review of all of your current medications, reviewing contraindications, and making sure we share the same goals so that compliance with the medication regimen is not an issue. During the management process we also ensure that you are aware of what you are taking, why the medication was chosen, how to take it, and what effects to be aware of.
