About Our Services
Mental illness can impact each person differently. And if you are suffering from a mental health condition, the team at South County Psychiatry can help you restore balance using an effective evidence-based approach.
We will discuss your goals for treatment and put together a plan that may involve one of our services (or a combination of):
Psychotherapy is a common form of treatment used for many different mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, stress, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, specific phobias, and various negative thought patterns.
Psychotherapy involves talking and listening. It is our goal for you to feel heard while we also want you to listen as we use our expertise to provide you with tools that can help. Of course, we also want you to hear us empower you to use them.
Medication is often used in combination with other treatments - though it may also be used on its own. Either way, it is used slowly and methodically with careful monitoring. Prescribing medication plays a big role in some of the treatments at South County Psychiatry that is why we make sure what we prescribe is yielding the right results. The following factors are taken into consideration before proceeding with this treatment:
- Age, weight, height
- Comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions
- Side effects
- Medication history with a list of doses, effects, and side effects, if applicable
- Patient preference
Medication can be used for all sorts of mental illnesses, but it is commonly used to help treat depression, ADHD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, panic disorders, and more.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) - This non-invasive procedure is used to stimulate nerve cells in the brain as part of a safe and effective treatment method for major depression and OCD.
