Upon every first encounter, a full and detailed history intake is performed as well as a current history of presenting illness. The evaluation includes social and biographical information, direct observations, and data from specific psychological tests.
Our team will perform laboratory testing according to presentation upon initial evaluation, symptoms, and lifestyle. This may include blood work and urinalysis to identify any imbalances in the body that could be contributing to psychiatric symptoms. Correcting these imbalances is a key part of healing mental health illnesses.
A combination of both traditional psychiatric medications and natural supplementations will be prescribed and recommended based on psychiatric evaluation, observation, and biometrics. Salt & Light uses Fullscript prescription for supplementation, offering quality supplements at a discounted price delivered right to your door.
Genetic testing is a pharmacogenomic test which means that it analyzes how your genes may affect medication outcomes. The genetic test analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. Results can inform us about how you may break down or respond to certain medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other psychiatric conditions.
We currently offer visits by telehealth only at this time.
As needed, referrals will be made to appropriate specialists outside the scope of practice and expertise, including a higher level of care for depression, suicidality, addiction, neurological and endocrine disorders, neuro psych testing, and psychotherapy
