All too often we hear:
-"my provider went straight to meds and would not try talk therapy..."
- " really want to try a holistic approach before going on medication..."
At New Hope, we specialize in custom care. We understand that sometimes talk therapy is all that is needed. We stay up to date on the science of holistic care and supplements and we also understand that sometimes prescription medication is needed. At New Hope we work with you to create a comprehensive road map to health.
One size does NOT fit all!
Psychotherapy (sometimes called “talk therapy”) is a term for a variety of treatment techniques that aim to help a person identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behavior. Psychotherapy takes place with our professionals and a patient meeting one on one or with other patients in a group setting.
--Talk therapy is beneficial in the treatment of depression in children
- Talk therapy is effective for treating and preventing depression during the perinatal period
-Talk therapy is effective for frail elderly with depressive symptoms
Natural supplements can be an effective way to treat mental health conditions. Either as a stand-alone therapy or combined with medications and talk therapy, supplements can be a safe, effective, and non-toxic way to feel better!
-- Omega 3 fatty acids (fish oil) shown to reduce depressive symptoms and self harm behaviors
--B Vitamins improve cognitive function and fatigue
--Zinc supplementation improves mood disorders
Patients with depression who are prescribed a psychotropic drug showed more recovery in two months than other patients who went without treatment. Medications can be an important tool in helping you feel better.
Prescription medications are not meant to be a crutch or instant solution; they are intended to be an adjunct to continual therapy. Medications just take the edge off so you can begin working on your coping skills and better manage your symptoms.
