Vancouver WA & Portland OR
Our mission is to provide integrative, creative care from a prism of honor, reverence, and optimism.
Medication Management & Evaluations
Psychiatric medication is one tool of several in our approach to feeling better. Stigma associated with medication as well as a sense of “failure” for being unable to fix whatever ails us on our own often act as barriers to exploring this option. The larger context at Vancouver Integrative Counseling (VIC) invites various approaches to mental health, only one of which is medication. The goal is to foster choice, individualized support, and empowerment in the treatment process. An evaluation with our prescriber offers an opportunity to explore whether medication would be helpful. Our environment and approach is warm, open, void of judgment, and we view you as the director in your process. Medication management in combination with counseling, acupuncture, massage and/or reiki is a multi-dimensional approach to recovery with choice and self-determination underscoring our mission.
