Zack Coco

Zack Coco, APRN

Zack Coco is a Nationally Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.  This gives him prescriptive authority, which allows him to prescribe and manage medications. He received his Master of Nursing Science degree from The Ohio State University and has experience treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, eating disorders, insomnia, and substance abuse disorders. Being certified in mental health treatment throughout the lifespan, Zack is able to see children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric patients.

Zack’s goal with medication management is to meet his patients where they are, and help get them to where they’d like to be. He works diligently with his patients to find the best medication for them. To achieve this, he encourages open and honest dialogue, while offering a friendly, safe, and judgment-free environment. As medications can affect everyone differently, he is also interested to know how well the prescribed medication is working for you, and if you’ve had any problems or side effects from its use.

Zack believes that medication management is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to treating any type of mental illness. Having a well-rounded treatment plan including medication, therapy, and a good working relationship between the patient and provider are all pieces that are needed for the best possible treatment outcomes. For that reason, he requires that all patients receiving medication services be in therapy as well.

She is Adult certified, and has over 15 years experience as an APRN, and 30 years experience in the Mental Health field. She has treated a variety of disorders, including depression, anxiety, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, insomnia, drug and alcohol issues.

Jo Ann believes that Medicine management requires finding the best medication for the client. That requires diagnostics and disclosure. Second is managing symptoms and side effects. She always wants to hear how well the medication is working (efficacy) as well as problems that might arise (side effects). Third is prescription refill.

Good medicine requires trust and excellent communication. Jo Ann requires patients to be in therapy to receive medication services.
