Virginia Beach, VA Psychiatry – Meet With Board-Certified Psychiatrists

Therapists and counselors employ a range of techniques—from active listening to reflection and empathy—to help their clients manage their presenting issue(s) and live healthier. That said, while many benefit from therapy or counseling, they also benefit from taking medication when diagnosed with mental health disorders like depression or anxiety. In these instances (that is, when medications are involved), medication management is key to finding the right one and at the right dosage.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners and online psychiatrists at Thriveworks Virginia Beach help their clients manage their medications, whether it be a mood stabilizer, antidepressant, or cognitive enhancer. They have the proper certifications, credentials, and experience to administrate psychotherapy and prescribe psychiatric medications that may enhance the benefits of therapy.

Who Needs Medication Management?

Some people falsely believe that only the most severe of mental health conditions require or necessitate medical interventions. However, that is not the case: while those struggling with conditions like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder certainly benefit from medication, so do many others. Psychiatric medications are often effective in treating common mental illnesses like…

  • Anxiety
  • Depression (and other mood disorders)
  • Adjustment disorders
  • Eating disorders

And the list doesn’t stop there. If you’re suffering with a mental health condition and think you could benefit from psychotherapy in combination with medication, the psychiatrists at Thriveworks Virginia Beach can help. They can diagnose, explain, and help to treat your presenting illness.

The Importance of Understanding Your Medication

So, why is it important that you understand and manage your medication properly? Because the effectiveness of your medication relies on the proper use of your antidepressant, mood stabilizer, or other psychiatric medication. Not to mention increasing or decreasing your dosage without the recommendation or guidance of a healthcare professional can have some hazardous effects on your health. So, if you’re prescribed a medication, be sure to…

  • Tell your provider about all mediations or supplements you’re currently taking
  • Disclose any allergies or problems you’ve had with any medications
  • Understand exactly how to take the medication and how much before you start using it
  • Continue to take your medication exactly as instructed by your provider
  • Call your provider immediately with any problems or concerns about your medication

Don Costigan – Highly recommend!

★★★★★
Don is an incredible human being who is right where he needs to be helping people regain balance in their lives. I lost mine. My husband lost his. We lost our marital balance. Don helped us face hard truths and taught us how to acknowledge our negative communications and replace it with the knowledge of how to break the cycle. We learned how to healthfully detach, accept & grow. We are forever thankful to Don for his guidance.

★★★★★
I've worked with J Turon for several years and can account for the positive impact he has had with so many of our clients. Mr. Turon has a natural way of relating to others, ensuring they understand what he is sharing and then implementing changes that are reflected in behavior, attitude and approach. I would recommend Mr. Turon to anyone or any family seeking answers as well as a guide to a well balanced and healthy approach to mental health.

I love everything about thriveworks! The first time I called I was able to get an appointment the same day with a great therapist, Shuan Salzman. I was diagnosed with FND and on of the treatments is cognitive behavioral therapy. My daughter also goes here and sees Jeanie. She is workingwonderful with teenagers.

Digusted

★☆☆☆☆
I cancelled my daughter's appointment due to illness (she was throwing up) and was charged a $99 fee! The fact that you would rather me bring my child throwing up to your office instead of allowing me to cancel is disgusting. It is bad enough having a sick child at home, now I have to incur a $99 fee for having a sick child and doing the right thing by keeping her home. Gross. Shame on you.

Monthly Administrators Fee

★☆☆☆☆
It is unfortunate that my therapist of many years Dr. Amanda Trent started working for Thrive. Thrive charges a MONTHLY Administration plus your copay which is ridiculous. To my knowledge noone charges a monthly fee other than Thrive. In my opinion their goal is to gain money not assist patients in need.. If you need help , i recommend locating a facility that does not charge a monthly fee.

Your website advertises appointments available within 24 hours, but I just called to schedule with a NP and was told you have no new patient availability.
