Season Health provides medication management for psychiatric and mental health conditions. We work closely with you to obtain an extensive history of medication use to determine the best plan of care for your mental health needs.
However, not everyone needs medication! It is only 1/3 of the full mental health picture. We are happy to help guide your care decisions with expert recommendations, whether you need medication or not.

Evaluation & Treatment Services
Initial Intake Appointment
Your first appointment will be spent with us getting to know each other. Please plan to spend 60-90 minutes in your appointment. We will discuss your psychiatric and mental health history as well as your medical and social histories. Ideally, we will discuss your life from birth through the present, but understand that some of these topics can be painful and will only ask for what you are comfortable talking about. However the more information that is provided, the better able we are to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Follow-up Appointments or "Med Checks"
Once your plan of care is started, for your safety, frequent follow-up appointments are scheduled. We will plan to see you every two weeks when medications are being adjusted or changed. Once we find a good stable place, we want to see you a month later, to make sure it’s settled in well, and then plan to check in every 3 months. It’s important to keep these appointments so that subtle changes in your state can be identified and treated before you come to a crisis point.
Evaluation for Autism & ADHD
These evaluations are offered at Season Health. We use an observational interview process as well as applying the most recent evidence based diagnostic criteria to determine if these conditions are present. The best evaluation will include information from friends and family members who are closest to you, particularly in childhood. You are welcome to bring anyone with you who makes you feel safe and comfortable through the process.
Identifying Medical Causes
Many physiologic health conditions can have a significant impact on mental health symptoms. No amount of antidepressants will help someone with low thyroid performance, for example. It’s important to be sure that your symptoms are not being caused by deficiencies in your body. These are often diagnosed with blood tests.
Genesight is a great tool for helping to guide prescribing decisions. These results do not tell us “which meds will work and which ones won’t.” However, it can give some clues about choosing the best dosing based on your metabolic functioning, or help us avoid medications that may cause more side effects. This test is a swab of your inner cheek and is done in our office during your appointment.
Season Health does not provide talk therapy services. However, we have professional connections with many referral sources for you and can help you get connected with a therapist that works for you.
