120-min | Initial Session
Initial 120 Minute Comprehensive Evaluation- This is your first visit with Dr. Foster in which she will review your full medical, psychiatric, psychosocial and family history. It is important to obtain an accurate medical history during this first visit, therefore, please print and complete all forms in our forms section and have them available to present to the doctor so she will be able to make the best use of your time together. During this session, your reason(s) for seeking treatment will be discussed in depth and a full treatment plan (including psychotherapy and/or medication if needed) will be prescribed.
50-min | Follow-Up (+) Session
- Medication Management & Psychotherapy Session- During this dual-purpose customized follow-up session, the doctor will adjust and alter your medication regimen as needed, as well as engage in intensive psychotherapy. Dr. Foster’s general treatment principle regarding psychotropic medications is to use the lowest effective dose of medication that successfully alleviates your symptoms. Regarding psychotherapy, specific treatment modalities used during sessions include psychodynamic or insight-oriented therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy.
25-min | Follow-Up Session
Medication Management Session- This is a follow-up session tailored specifically to any medication management issues you may have. Your mood, symptoms and psychopharmacological treatment plan will be discussed thoroughly. Any appropriate changes to your medication regimen will be made and supportive psychotherapy will be performed. Dr. Foster is also regularly available to her patients by phone or email for any follow-up questions regarding medication changes. Please keep in mind that many medication cannot be filed, refilled or changed by telephone, so a session may be required
