If you've landed on this page, you're probably considering whether taking a medication is right for you. 

 

Even if you've come to the decision to give medications a try (or to consider making a change to your current regimen), which one is right?

 

The options can often feel overwhelming. 

Working with someone who is thoughtful, knowledgeable, and responsive can make the process more efficient so you're not wasting time searching for relief.  Dr. Martins will work with you from day one to make sure your concerns are addressed before you make any decisions in your treatment.  Your treatment will start with a comprehensive initial assessment done over a 60-minute session.  Read more about the initial visit.

If indicated, treatment recommendations may include a discussion about medications you might consider including evidence-based psychiatric medications and other options.  Dr. Martins is well-trained and experienced in providing a thoughtful and step-wise approach to tackle the spheres of suffering that prevent you from functioning at your best.   

MONITORING YOUR PROGRESS

If you choose to have Dr. Martins prescribe you psychiatric medications, she will work collaboratively with you to learn about any benefits and side effects of your medication.  Together you will develop a follow-up plan.  This includes the recommended frequency of visits to monitor your progress.  If you see a therapist, Dr. Martins will collaborate with your clinician for a team-based, comprehensive approach to your treatment.
