Psychiatry

Psychiatry in Cumming, GA—Medication Management 

Marcus struggles with depression and anxiety. To his friends and family, it seems as if nothing is “wrong” with him and that he’s a happy, hardworking adult. While that is true in some cases, Marcus often puts on a happy face when he struggles with his emotions. 

Some tasks are more challenging for him, like presenting during meetings at work or putting on clean clothes when he’s having a rough morning. Although his anxiety and depression aren’t considered severe, he could still benefit from more than just counseling. Whether you’re like Marcus or struggle a little more with your mental health, a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner can help.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been battling a mental disorder for several months or several years. There gets to be a point where you’ve had enough of being held back from living a happy and successful life. If you’re struggling with a mental illness, you might benefit from talking to a psychiatrist.

At Thriveworks Counseling in Cumming, GA, we have psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners who have the training, education, and expertise to help their clients take the medications they need safely and effectively. At our office, we are dedicated to providing you with the uplifting, accessible care you deserve. If you are experiencing a mental health condition and feel like you might benefit from talking to a psychiatrist, consider reaching out to our office today. 

Why Do I Need Medication Management?

“Do I know how much medication I should be taking?” “Are my current medications going to be negatively affected by a new medication?”

These are essential questions to answer when thinking about starting a new medication. Luckily, a psychiatrist can answer those questions in addition to providing you all of the information you need. If you do end up meeting with a nurse practitioner or psychiatrist about a prescription medication, be sure to:

  1. Disclose any and all medications you are currently on
  2. Discuss any allergies or issues you have had with past medications
  3. Understand how much of the medication you should be taking, at what time of the day, and with or without food
  4. Continue to take your medication exactly as prescribed
  5. Speak with your provider if you have any questions or concerns about the medication you are on

Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Cumming, we are client-focused and understand the importance of a partnership in your mental health journey. No matter the question, concern, or topic you’d like to discuss, our psychiatrists and nurse practitioners are only a phone call or click away. 

Who Is Medication Management For? 

As you might have guessed by now, psychiatrists and nurse practitioners at our office in Cumming can help their clients with a broad range of concerns and needs. There is often a misconception that only the most severe cases of mental illness are the right fit. However, even mild cases can show significant success in using medication to overcome hurdles. Whether you’re struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one, are battling depression, have relationship problems, or just have low self-esteem. Medication can help.

Family Saver

★★★★★
Every family goes through seasons were they may need help in navigating challenging emotional or stressful situations. Depending on the circumstances, thinking you can handle it on your own may prove to be too much and not the right approach. Our family experienced one of these seasons and the team at Thrivewoks offered on point guidance and perspective that our family was not able to see from the middle of the storm. Teenage years present many emotional and developmental changes that can often require outside the family support. Dr. Tim Giannoni and Counselor Tony Reynolds provide prompt, compassionate and effective care for our teenager and whole family. The storm is clearing largely due to techniques and consistent meetings that allow our teenager to have his place to go to talk and work through the many emotional peaks and valleys that come with these years of life. We cannot thank our team at Thriveworks enough for caring for our son and family!!!

Raising a teenage boy

★★★★★
The ups and downs of raising a teenage boy can feel very daunting at times. Although most days are fine, others can be quite challenging, and it's comforting to know that Dr. Giannoni is there to help and offer support. Our experience with Thriveworks has been excellent, and we are happy to offer our highest review and recommendation for anyone looking to make parenting just a bit easier. Thank you for your continued support.

Prospective and Compassion.

★★★★★
I cannot express how much Dr. Wilson helped me when I was at a very low point in my life. Her compassion and perspective brought insight that helped me through that tough period in my life. Her education and training enabled her to catch important warning signs that a lesser trained therapist might have missed. Today I'm in a much better place largely due to her counseling on how to deal with life issues.
