As a specialist, I prescribe medications in the scope of psychiatry only. I take a "less is better" approach in general, but always balance that with client preference, symptom control, improving functioning and enhancing quality of life. I am always growing in my knowledge and understanding of natural treatments, and as such, I am just as likely to prescribe a lifestyle change or a supplement as I am a medication. I also use the tool of genetic testing, when appropriate, to help determine the right medication choice for my clients.
