I primarily prescribe psychiatric medication. I will evaluate you or your child with that in mind. Medications do not work for everyone, and many could benefit from supplements, along with a psychiatric medicine, to assist their body to make neurotransmitters more available in the brain.
My goal is to help you function and feel better and, at some point, to not need me anymore. Thus my business name–Building New Horizons–to help you build your own new horizons. For some, that is not always possible or feasible. And in those situations, I hope to prescribe the least amount of medications and help you to help yourself in every way possible.
However, it is possible to do a non-invasive assessment of a person’s brain waves through a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG). Those measurements are then compared to thousands of other brains to determine what medications would work best. Many insurances are now paying for this service. This would be the best place to start after your initial assessment.
