Telepsychiatry is virtual mental health care provided by a psychiatrist (a medical doctor specializing in psychiatry) or a highly trained psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) like Dominique.
With telepsychiatry, appointments are 100% online. You’ll use a smartphone, tablet, or computer to connect to Dominique in a private video chat room. Telepsychiatry has all the same characteristics as an in-person appointment; however, you don’t need to leave the house, drive, or sit in a waiting room with other people.
At Raelin Bright Wellness, Dominique treats mental disorders such as:
Dominique creates personalized treatment plans for every telepsychiatry patient, and she changes your appointments as your needs change. If you’re struggling with any aspect of mental health, Dominique can help you feel like yourself again through telepsychiatry.
When you book your telepsychiatry appointment online, you’ll automatically receive a link before your scheduled appointment. At your appointment time, click “knock” and enter your name. Dominique opens the door to the video chat room so you can begin your appointment.
Be sure to sit in a quiet private space with the door closed for your appointment. Turn off distractions like the television or other electronic devices so you can get the best benefits from your one-on-one appointment with Dominique.
Your appointment is very similar to an in-person visit because you and Dominique can see each other. You discuss what brings you to telepsychiatry, your goals for treatment, and how to take next steps to meet those goals.
Dominique recommends psychotherapy (talk therapy) for most patients. She may also recommend medication management. To make sure you get the medication that relieves your symptoms the best, Dominique uses genetic testing.
With a cheek swab that you perform in your home, a high-tech lab can analyze your DNA to determine what drugs you’ll respond to and how your body will metabolize those medications. This allows Dominique to prescribe the ideal medication for your needs and gives you the fastest possible symptom relief.
