Initial Evaluation

A Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation involves discussing what you are experiencing, your concerns, your mind-body symptoms, your medical and psychiatric history, family history, and psychosocial factors affecting your mental health balance and well-being.

During our first visit together, we will meet for about 1.5 – 2 hours with a primary goal of building a trusting patient-practitioner relationship, establishing a DSM-5 TR (Psychiatric Diagnostic Manual, 5th Edition, text-revision) diagnosis, identifying treatment goals and creating a treatment plan.

Our Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) will collaborate with your Therapist to get to know you and treat your mind and body, not solely treat your “symptoms”.

  • Anxiety

Developing a Treatment Plan

Based on your DSM-5 TR diagnosis, and presenting symptoms, together we will develop an individualized treatment plan to address your unique personal needs and goals.

Your individualized treatment plan can include Psychotropic Medication(s), Complementary, Alternative, and/or Psychotherapeutic Treatment Modalities, laboratory testing, recommendations for further Diagnostic Imaging/Testing, and referrals to Primary Care Physicians and Psychiatric Specialists. Balance Psychiatry & Mental Health, a Professional Nursing Corporation will collaborate with your primary care provider and/or any specialty providers as needed to ensure your continuity of care.
