Psychologists do not prescribe medications. If, at the onset or during the course of treatment, medication could be of benefit, we will work together to find the appropriate physician (e.g. primary care or psychiatrist) to assist you with this need.
It is very anxiety provoking to think about getting help from a psychologist when you work in a sensitive federal position or hold a security clearance. Because of the populations I work with, I am well versed on the adjudications process and how seeking treatment affects employment and deployments. If you are concerned that our meeting will have a negative impact on your work-related activity, I am happy to discuss my knowledge of the adjudication process with you prior to setting up a consultation.
