Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners in Maumelle, AR—Medication Management

Do you struggle to get out of bed due to depression? Are you overwhelmed with anxiety such that you hate leaving the house? Of course therapy can help, but if you have difficulty getting out of bed or leaving the house, then therapy becomes a challenge. We saw the problem and found a reasonable option for our clients who really want to get better. We hired a psychiatric nurse practitioner.

So what exactly is a psychiatric nurse practitioner anyway?

Advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) earn master’s or doctoral degrees in psychiatric-mental health nursing. These highly trained nurses assess, diagnose, and treat individuals or families with both therapy and medication. The medication helps the individual stabilize their symptoms long enough to start work in therapy.

Do I really need therapy AND medicine?

Many of our clients get the help they need with therapy alone, but some find medication to really help with the acute symptoms like panic, dread, helplessness, and hopelessness to name a few. Once these symptoms are under control, the client is typically able to work through the root causes with therapy. In fact, studies show that therapy and medication together do far more than either option alone, especially in cases of severe anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and personality disorders.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners have the medical training and clinical background to help you determine if medication management is right for you. Keep in mind that this is not a new concept. If you needed medication to control your blood pressure or to manage your diabetes, your medical doctor would prescribe medicine, as well as proper diet and exercise. It is full spectrum health care. Thriveworks Counseling of Conway offers full spectrum behavioral health care for clients who may benefit from psychiatric medication as part of a structured mental health support plan.

At Thriveworks, you never have to wait for long periods of time to get an appointment. We guarantee an appointment within twenty-four hours for therapy and within one week for medication management. In fact, you never have to wait in the reception area either. We don’t double stack appointments. We are committed to seeing you on time, every time, and our clients love it. No one wants to wait, and at Thriveworks you don’t have to.

Better than I imagined!!!

I cannot say enough good about this place. They honestly do strive to get you in to see a practitioner quickly...Read more

. And the importance of being seen soon to someone who is at a bad psychological point cannot be understated. It can, literally, mean the difference between life and death. After years of no longer being able to trust mental health providers due to so much misdiagnosis I reached out to Thriveworks. I asked for a particular practitioner, and they had me in to see her the following day. Kristy's approach was welcoming, empathetic, friendly, and down-to-earth. She did not speak down to me as a patient, but she made a comfortable effort to connect from the beginning. Gaining my trust over several weeks she was able to start showing me some things no one ever took the time to extract. She found me at the precipice of a terrible situation and worked me back from the ledge. Her input to Zack, along with his personable and empathetic personality, finally got me on medications that actually have improved my situation more than I could have ever imagined. The combination of her therapy and the medications have me, for the first time in decades, recognizing a hope for the future. All I can say is if you are that person who has lost hope and feels as though you have no purpose, let the Thriveworks team have a chance to show you a you even you didn't know existed. Without hyperbole I can honestly say I owe my life going forward to Kristy and Zack.
