About the Office
After an extensive initial evaluation with Dr. Lehrhoff, the psychiatrist may order blood tests, or additional medical diagnostic tests in order to rule out physical illnesses that may be presenting as mental illness. Psychiatrists tend to use a combination of psychotherapy and medication to treat the mental illness.
What makes this practice unique?
In this practice, each patient is seen as a unique individual and treatment is constructed to fit one’s specific needs. Dr. Lehrhoff works with the mindset that medication is a great tool, but may not be efficient as stand-alone treatment or necessary for everyone. Dr. Lehrhoff practices with a full systems approach, meaning that she uses a wide-range of treatment modalities to guide patients towards feeling their best.
Some of the methods in addition to medication management include:
life style management
Every individual is provided a safe space to work through any challenge they may be facing or utilize the sessions to enhance and maintain peace in their life. Some of the more common reasons people schedule an appointment with Dr. Lehrhoff are:
