Psychiatric services at Therapy Changes are integrative, meaning that all aspects of your health are considered when providing care. Your first meeting comprises of a thorough medical and psychological history. Our Psychiatrist, Dr. Lesley Ross, works collaboratively with you and your care team to determine the treatment option that is best for you.
Treatment options include thoughtful and respectful medication management when appropriate, as well as information related to nutrition, sleep and pain management strategies. Dr. Ross is knowledgeable on a variety of treatment methods including Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and will offer referrals when needed. In addition, medical acupuncture is offered either as a stand-alone intervention, or in conjunction with another treatment.
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise points in the body. This stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
Dr. Lesley Ross is an experienced acupuncture practitioner and member of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture. Dr. Ross works closely with her clients to determine if acupuncture is a helpful intervention, either by itself or as an adjunctive therapy.
