Navigating the mental health system can be daunting. It can fail to deliver tangible benefits, leaving many patients feeling trapped. While finding the right treatment can be challenging, there are exciting new treatments and therapies being developed each year. Dr. Yi has an extensive research background and actively integrates the latest research and treatment modalities.
After the initial evaluation, Dr. Yi arrives at a practical and sensible treatment plan in collaboration with patients and families. This may initially include medications, therapy or both. As the patient’s condition improves or changes, he will adapt his treatment plan accordingly.
While mild symptoms can initially be treated with therapy only, more severe symptoms often require medication or a combination of medication and therapy. Dr. Yi is conservative in his use of medications and strives to use a minimal effective dose while being mindful of potential side effects.
Therapy can benefit many people and comes in various forms. While our therapists draw from a wide range of approaches (i.e., eclectic), each therapist has specializations. We strive to find the best fit for each client’s needs. Therapy sessions are inherently personal and it is essential for both client and therapist to establish a safe and trusting relationship with clear boundaries. It is suggested that clients work with a therapist for several sessions before determining whether or not the therapist is a good fit. Our therapists will initially establish clear expectations and goals for therapy; we recommend for clients to be open and communicate their needs and expectations.
