Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
ATTENTION DEFICIT MEDICATION MANAGEMENT
Adults and Adolescents
Welcome to our Office!
Attention deficit is not a disease or a disorder. It is a difference in neurological wiring. People with these patterns are usually highly creative but lead chaotic lives. In Dr. Randolph's office, patients gain a better understanding of how to create effective skill sets to empower their lives through the use of education, personal skills, and medication.
What to Expect
Dr. Gretchen Randolph has over 35 years of experience as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Office appointments always include counseling to explore your personal situation and needs so she can properly diagnose how best to help you. Dr. Randolph does both medication and therapy treatment; she can diagnose clients and immediately prescribe medication.
Dr. Randolph understands the importance of continued care for work and productivity, so her clients can rely on her for emergency coverage. She keeps her practice small, responsive, and affordable. Call 503-968-1155 if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment as a new patient.
In the first session, Dr. Randolph will work with you to assess your situation to determine a diagnosis, discuss your options, and will ensure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions. If diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, patients may leave this appointment with a prescription and a medication plan. It is important that each person finds the most effective path to accomplish their goals. If that path includes medication, getting the right prescription and dosage is important. In the next session, you will assess together how your treatment is working for you.
"Children and adults with ADD/ADHD can focus very well on a few activities that intensely interest them, yet be unable to focus adequately on most other tasks of daily life." - Thomas E. Brown, Ph.D.
