Are your symptoms well-managed now? Perhaps you prefer to work with a psychiatric provider who collaborates more with your therapist. Perhaps you are new to the area and just need to find someone local for medication management to help keep symptoms at bay. Perhaps you're hoping for a better connection or easier access. Synergy strives to collaborate, connect, and support what's already working.
Many patients have been struggling for a long time with symptoms, hoping they would improve with time or changes in circumstances. Some are anxious about medications or afraid that nothing can help. Synergy knows that medications can be a part of the solution for some, but we strive to embrace a variety of methods and strategies to bring relief, confidence, and hope for sustainable improvement.
We take seriously the risk for side effects from certain medications. We provide support, alternatives and non-pharmacologic recommendations to prevent or minimize sexual side effects, weight gain, accidental addiction, or threats to recovery. When such challenges present, we partner with others to help our patients get as much symptom relief as possible with as much attention to sexual health, healthy weight, and overall well-being.
Medications can be a part of the solution, but we know that virtually all medications have some drawbacks. So there may even be times that we put our prescription pad aside in favor of other solutions. This does not mean that we will withhold non-controlled medications that could be helpful. It simply means that we recognize that medications are not the only ~ or even the best ~ solution in every situation.
We know that there's no one thing that makes everything better. But when several good things (and good services) are all working together, great things can happen! We partner with therapists, primary care physicians, neurofeedback specialists, sexual health specialists, nutritionists, ADHD coaches, clinical psychologists, equine-assisted psychotherapists, energy workers, and other specialists. We want you to receive consistent messages and know that your providers are working together so that you get the best possible "synergy" from your whole team.
