The 1st Visit at Nature Coast Psychiatry
The first visit includes a comprehensive assessment of your mental and emotional issues, as well as medical issues and medicines that can impact your concerns. At the end of the first visit, if we decide to work together, a collaborative action plan will be developed which may include medication, therapy, vitamins, herbs &/or supplements, mind &/or body exercises, worksheets and homework.
Psychiatric Medication Management
Medicine can be an integral component of psychiatric care, and is essential for more severe psychiatric conditions.

Stress Reduction through Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a form of meditation, a skill, and even a way of life. Mindfulness Meditation increases awareness of sensations and feelings, but at a distance. Mindfulness eases suffering in everyday life.
Creative Expressions Therapy
Creative Expressions can help you excavate deeply hidden emotions and beliefs, through writing, art, literature, film, music, poetry and even movement. At times, logic cannot enter into the subconscious easily enough to effect change. Creativity bypasses logic, allowing healing to occur effortlessly.
If you are ready to interpret and receive messages from your deepest subconscious, or if you are just curious about what your dreams may mean, Dream Work will enlighten you. We will work together to discover the individualized symbolism hidden in your nightly messages.
Integrative Wellness / Whole Health
We offer virtual visits through https://doxy.me/naturecoast using any internet browser! This is a secure technology for telemedicine visits (telepsychiatry). Usually, virtual visits are only available for patients in Florida who have been evaluated face-to-face. Virtual visits are charged at the same rate as face-to-face visits. FOR NOW: COVID-19 has led to some exceptions in coverage -most insurances now cover telemedicine.
