PRIVATE PRACTICE of
Dr. Cynthia Turner-Graham
ForSoundMind Enterprises also includes Dr. Turner-Graham's private psychiatry practice in a suburb of Washington, D.C. Medical services include:
- Comprehensive psychiatric evaluation
- Individual, family and group psychotherapy
- Prescribing of psychotropic medications
- Medication monitoring
After an initial evaluation, a treatment plan is collaboratively developed based upon diagnosis and identifiable personal strengths and assets. It is this "strength-based" approach that empowers individuals and families to build upon the positive aspects of their life and personality. Insurance is accepted on a limited basis.
Making the decision and taking the steps to make an appointment with a mental health professional is sometimes very difficult, especially when in emotional distress. For some, reaching out for professional help is interpreted as a sign of weakness or failure. Many stresses of modern life place an unusually heavy physical and psychological burden on our bodies and minds. Chemical and hormonal changes resulting are often amenable to counseling, psychotherapy and/or medication.
When needed help is denied, unnecessary suffering is the consequence, depriving individuals of effective ways of relieving their legitimate suffering. In the same way that heart disease and diabetes require medical evaluation and medical treatment, those things that interfere with your effective functioning are often responsive to medical interventions.
