I am primarily a prescriber of Psychiatric Medications. So I will initially evaluate you or your child with that in mind. But over the years, I have learned that medications do not work in everyone and many people benefit from a combination of vitamin and mineral supplements to assist their body to make neurotransmitters along with taking a ‘psychiatric’ medicine that makes the neurotransmitter 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 at least some of you, that is not entirely possible or feasible. And in those situations, I hope to prescribe the least number and amounts of medications and help you to help yourself in every way possible.
For starters, it is possible to do a non-invasive assessment of a person’s brain waves through a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG). Those measurements of the brain waves are then sent electronically to a database at CNS Response (PEER), for comparison of many thousands of brain waves to find out what ‘psychiatric’ medications the individual’s brainwaves would respond to the best.
Many insurances are now paying for this service. This would be the best place to start after your initial assessment with me.
