"Working in mental health opened my eyes to the realization that so many people are experiencing mental health challenges that aren’t visible on the surface, robbed of their sense of peace, joy, self-love, and self-worth. Providing mental health care is life-saving—just as life-saving as the care I provided during my cardiology years—and more important now than ever in today’s society amidst the current global mental health crisis."

Judy Seals, Founder and CEO, Synergy Integrative Health & Wellness

When anxiety and depression are acute, it can become difficult to function.

Perhaps you or a loved one is struggling, and you need a solution quickly.

If you’re not already set up with a mental health care provider, you may be finding it challenging to find one—psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are in high demand, and waiting lists are long.

Or maybe you’re not currently covered by health insurance or need a short-term refill while traveling or between health insurance plans.

When your situation feels shaky, you need quick access to the medication to help you gain enough equilibrium to determine your next steps.

We’ll get you assessed and diagnosed so you can quickly get started on the medication management you need.

We’ll address the acute issue and supervise your progress, ensuring that you’re working with a licensed therapist as needed.

Because we don’t accept insurance, your costs will be affordable, straightforward, and strictly out-of-pocket with no surprises.

Medication is one of many tools in our toolkit. Our approach to mental health medication management is holistic—we strive to treat the whole person using a variety of modalities.

You’ll have access to ongoing collaboration from licensed healthcare providers, a registered dietitian, and a certified holistic health coach to support related lifestyle changes, such as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management.

We can help you with short- and long-term mental health care and beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

Determining if medications are needed for a mental health condition is a complex process and should involve a healthcare professional. A thorough assessment of your symptoms, medical history, risk factors, and overall health is needed to gain a better understanding of the best treatment options for you.

Some mental health conditions are best treated with therapy, while others are more effectively treated by adding medication. The decision to use medications is individualized and takes into account each individual’s unique conditions, circumstances, and preferences. The severity and duration of symptoms are key when determining if medications are needed. If medications are necessary, they are just one component of a comprehensive treatment plan. Many mental health conditions benefit from a combination of lifestyle changes, therapy, medication, and support from loved ones.

This varies from person to person and depends on the type of medication. Some medications may start working in a few days, and while some individuals might notice improvement early in treatment, full therapeutic benefits may take several weeks to months.

Side effects vary depending on the medication, but some common side effects include weight gain, sexual dysfunction, drowsiness, nausea, dry mouth, and lightheadedness. Not everyone experiences side effects, and their severity can vary. Some side effects can improve or resolve over time as your body adjusts to the medication.

Medication management for mental health conditions is a long-term, ongoing process to ensure safety and efficacy. The frequency of follow-up appointments will depend on your specific condition and medication. When first initiating medication, we recommend that you follow up with your provider more frequently so that they can make adjustments as needed to optimize effectiveness and minimize side effects of the medication. Over time, appointments may become less frequent if your symptoms stabilize.

Absolutely. Primary care providers (PCPs) such as family physicians and nurse practitioners can and often do treat mental illness and play a crucial role in the detection, diagnosis, and initial management of mental health conditions. They initiate treatment for mild to moderate mental health conditions, which often includes prescribing medication, providing psychoeducation, and recommending lifestyle changes or self-help strategies. For individuals with more severe or persistent mental health conditions, PCPs manage and adjust medication regimens and monitor medication effectiveness, side effects, and potential drug interactions. If an individual’s mental health condition is complex or requires specialized treatment, they are referred to mental health specialists to ensure that they receive the most appropriate and comprehensive care.
