Our psychiatric nurse practitioners offer medication consultation and prescription services for children, adolescents and adults.
List of Prescribers Services
Psychotherapy in conjunction with Psychotropic medication can be an effective protocol in mitigating symptoms associated with trauma, anxiety and depression, among other mental health conditions. Our nurse practitioners are trained to work with the whole person and collaborate with your existing therapist. In turn, we require that individuals who seek psychiatric consultation be in active psychotherapy and have seen their current therapist a minimum of three times.
Here at Lyn-Lake Psychotherapy & Wellness, we strive to provide you with an above-average psychiatric experience. Our prescribers don’t conduct the industry-standard 15 minute medication checks so common in busy practices; because we believe the therapeutic alliance is vital to this work, we pride ourselves in weaving supportive psychotherapy and therapeutic interventions into our visits with you.
Because of this, you may sometimes see more than one code listed on your invoices:
● 99213, 99214, 99215 – These are E&M codes for the medication management portion of the visit. As the numbers go up, they indicate increasing level of complexity.
● 90833 – This is a Psychotherapy Add-on code, and is used to reflect the supportive psychotherapy* work we are doing with you, on top of medication management. These codes will not be used at every visit, and often their use decreases as you improve.
● 90875 – This is an Interactive Complexity** code, and is used to reflect complexities in communication experienced during the visit.
Because we so strongly believe in the importance of supportive psychotherapy to your mental health, we do not offer an option of medication management only; if supportive psychotherapy is indicated, it will be provided.
*Supportive psychotherapy is the attempt by a clinician by any practical means whatever to help clients deal with their emotional distress and problems in living. It includes comforting, advising, encouraging, reassuring, teaching and reflective listening. In supportive psychotherapy the clinician engages in a fully emotional, encouraging, and supportive relationship with the client as a method of furthering healthy defense mechanisms, especially in the context of interpersonal relationships.
** The interactive complexity code can be used: when delivery of care is complicated due to managing maladaptive communication among involved parties; when implementation of treatment is hindered due to caregiver emotions or behaviors; when clients require equipment, devices, interpreters, or translators to work around impediments to diagnostic or therapeutic interactions; or when discussion of a reportable event and/or mandated report to a third party is initiated with the patient and any other participants.
