Medication Management: Because Psychiatry Should be a Team Sport, Too
Psychiatric Care at Lifeologie
Lifeologie is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Dr. Brian Forsythe, DO, of Dallas TMS to offer psychiatric care at Lifeologie’s DFW locations! Lifeologie has a long-standing clinical relationship with Dr. Forsythe — involving 20 years of collaboration on countless cases. Dr. Brandon Respress, our new psychiatric nurse practitioner (PMHNP), is a seasoned clinician with fantastic clinical and people skills, who will be working closely with Dr. Forsythe and our clinical staff.
Our prescribers are passionate about collaborating with each client’s therapist to ensure quality care.
Psych Care, Med Management
As you are no doubt aware if you are reading this page, mental health issues sometimes require more help than counseling alone can provide. Some mental health issues require a biological approach — no matter how much hard work you’re doing in the counseling office. Sometimes you just can’t seem to get your feet back under you. So. Frustrating.
When you receive medication management care from Lifeologie, you can expect that your counselor and your physician will be working hand-in-hand to make sure that both your medication and your therapy are working together. How cool is that?!
What Can I Expect?
At your first appointment, you will meet with both Dr. Forsythe and Dr. Respress, who will learn about your medical and psychiatric history. They will learn about your goals for mental wellness and create a plan to help you make it happen. In your follow up appointments (sometimes called “med checks”), you will meet with Dr. Respress to monitor and adjust your medications as needed.
She will also address any concerns about side effects and answer any questions you may have about your medications.
Does Insurance Cover Psychiatric Care at Lifeologie?
Currently, Dr. Brian Forsythe and Dr. Brandon Respress are contracted with the following insurance companies: Beacon Health Options, ComPsych, Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO Plans, and Medicare. We are currently out of network with other plans.
However, we are happy to give you any documentation you may need to send to insurance in order to submit for reimbursement for out-of-network services.
What Will it Cost Me Without Insurance?
Cash fees for psychiatric appointments are as follows:
- Initial Appointment (60 min): $360
- $10 discount for payments made by cash or check
- Medication Management Follow Up Appointments (30 min): $125
- $5 discount for payments made by cash or check
How long will I have to wait for my first appointment?
Good psychiatric care is hard to come by. Good psychiatric care without a 4-6 month waitlist is even HARDER to come by! At Lifeologie, we know that’s unacceptable. There is currently no waitlist for psychiatric care at Lifeologie, and you can get in for care immediately!
