Manassas VA Medication Management

Psychiatry in Manassas, VA—Medication Management

Mental health professionals utilize different techniques to make their clients feel comfortable and help them find healing. These techniques include active listening, reflection, empathy, and effective communication skills, which ultimately guide the individuals in counseling to a happier, healthier place. That said, while counseling is beneficial, people seeking mental health care also benefit from taking medication when they’re diagnosed with a mental illness.

The online psychiatrists and nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Manassas Counseling help clients find the medication that is suitable for them, whether that’s an antidepressant, a mood stabilizer, or another. Additionally, the practitioners’ certifications and credentials, as well as their experience, enable them to administer psychotherapy, which can also make a huge difference in their clients’ lives.

Who Can Benefit from Medication Management?

Many falsely assume that only the most severe cases of mental health conditions call for medication. This, however, is not the case. In fact, many different people with many different conditions can benefit from medication: those with schizophrenia, those with depression, those with bipolar disorder, and those with anxiety (just to name a few).

If you’ve been diagnosed with a mental health disorder, it’s important you seek treatment. Or, if you’ve been experiencing symptoms of a mental health disorder, it’s important you see a mental health professional and receive diagnosis. In either case, a nurse practitioner at Thriveworks Manassas Counseling can help. They can treat your illness, offer diagnosis, and even help you better understand your symptoms.

Why Is It So Important to Understand Your Medication?

Here’s an important question: why is it important you understand your medication, from the dosage to its effects? First, because success in treatment relies on your using your medication properly. Second, changing your dosage—whether that’s increasing or decreasing it—can make your situation worse, as doing so can have some dangerous effects on your health. So, if you do meet with a nurse practitioner about getting prescription medication, make sure you…

  • Disclose any and all medications you’re already on
  • Discuss any allergies or issues you’ve had with past medications
  • Understand exactly how much of the medication you should be taking and when
  • Continue to use your medication exactly as prescribed
  • Call your provider if you have any concerns or run into any problems with your medication

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

★★★★★
Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience.

★★★★★
It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
