WHY PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATION MANAGEMENT?
We believe that the better you feel, the more productive, fulfilled and happy you are in your everyday life. That’s why Integrated Counseling and Wellness employs a team of trusted professionals who can address health concerns holistically, healing mind, body and spirit. Our psychiatric nurse practitioner uses evidence-based treatments and is licensed to prescribe mental health medication for a variety of illnesses. Often, clients receive treatment in conjunction with other integrated medicine services at the clinic, including counseling, lifestyle changes, and natural remedies such as yoga, and acupuncture. Our services give you the unique opportunity to address mental health concerns comprehensively.
If you’re struggling, you are not alone. At times, we all struggle and need guidance. Seeking help for mental health issues can not only improve your life but also save your life. As Kwame Floyd said “It’s not what you go through that defines you; you can’t help that. It’s what you do after you’ve gone through it that really tests who you are.” It’s our aim here to provide a supportive, knowledgeable environment that promotes your long-term healing and growth.
Unlike a conventional doctor’s office—where you may not have a lot of time to explore your concerns—we have a supportive team that works collaboratively to provide you with the correct diagnosis as well as useful resources to enhance your overall wellbeing. With the right expertise and guidance, it’s possible to experience symptom reduction and enjoy more ease and calm in your life.
I look forward to each appointment and know that I will be treated with the utmost care, respect, and professionalism. I highly recommend this facility to others.
I've seen a dramatic change in my life since beginning my treatment at Integrated Counseling, and I will be forever grateful for my time there.
I went to integrated counseling for two years for eating disorder recovery. Every week, I loved meeting with my counselor to celebrate my successes and work through the barriers that come with mental health challenges. My counselor thoroughly explained the reasons behind eating disorder behaviors, showed empathy with hard topics, and helped me overcome Issues I had dealt with for years. I looked forward to each session. I am in a healthier state of mind and in a better place in life because of the thoughtfulness, kindness, and professionalism that my counselor showed me
I am a 56 year old woman who has struggled with disordered eating for the past 42 years of my life. It wasn’t until I found my counselor with Integrated Counseling, that I started to reverse all the ill effects of dieting, issues around controlling all my food and letting go of my fat phobia. The program that my counselor guided me through was an awesome mix of self compassion, intuitive eating and movement, being present in all aspects of life and stopping judgement towards myself and others. I am convinced that I would not be nearly as far along in my healing process were it not for my counselor. She was gentle yet firm, patient and incredibly understanding. I am left with all the tools I need to proceed through life on my continued recovery journey.
As a young woman who has struggled with body image and a relationship with food for most of my life, receiving counseling for my eating disorder was the only way I could finally see light at the end of my dark tunnel. My anorexia had consumed me to a point where food, exercise, and the way I perceived my body controlled my thoughts and feelings every hour of the day. It wasn't until I sought out counseling and had a desire to recover that I am finally healing. These past three years receiving professional help have truly saved my life. I am now the healthiest I have ever been. Without a shadow of a doubt, I would encourage any person who is struggling with an eating disorder to not be afraid to reach out and trust that you can finally learn to love yourself.

I had Annie as my therapist and she’s one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. She’s great at listening to what I need and making sure I’m comfortable no matter what. I love her and it’s because of her I know how to communicate and trust my therapists! Thank you!
This place changed my life. I haven’t been there in about 4 years now, but I was reflecting over my experience and thought they deserved a good review. I originally went to see Luke back in 2017 to deal with my depression. After visiting with him for a few months we came to the conclusion that I was dealing with undiagnosed ADHD. My life has significantly improved because of Luke and my diagnosis. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I've gone to many Counselor places, but this seems to be the one. Excellent Service! By both the therapists and the staff! Very friendly and professional! The atmosphere is great as well! They don't take Medicaid sadly, but they have multiple kinds of professionals and services to fit your need! They also have an excellent website. They are good at communicating to you and each other, so that nothing goes wrong.
I have loved my time with Integrated Counseling and Wellness. The staff made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. My therapist, Liz, was incredible. You can tell she is professionally trained, well qualified, and truly cares for her patients. I've seen a dramatic change in my life since beginning my treatment at Integrated Counseling, and I will be forever grateful for my time there.
I have had nothing but a positive experience in my time receiving counseling at Integrated Counseling and Wellness. The staff is incredibly friendly and professional and the environment is conducive to peace and calm. I have made and continue to make great strides in improving my mental health thanks to my time here.
LouAnn Stermer is an excellent counselor who cares deeply about her clients. In the past, I worked with her at 2 different times over several years. She always acted in a professional manner and with a great deal of integrity. Integrated Counseling is very lucky to have her.
Luke Einerson is amazing! I always had the hardest time falling asleep, and with one visit, Luke made the perfect herbal mixture that has made all the difference! He was very knowledgeable and caring! Highly recommend him if you are looking for a more natural Herbal alternative!
I have witnessed Luke's work with clients and can attest to his passion, compassion, and skill at delivering client-specific care. Luke really cares about the people he works with, and he is talented at seeing their potential to creatively help them realize that for themselves.
Luke is an Executive Coach with a solid entrepreneurial experience and deep understanding of the healthcare ecosystem. This combined with his strong listening skills and “out of the box” thinking approach, brings a unique edge to his coaching practice.
I have experienced incredible growth with the help of my counselor here. Best counseling I have ever had!
WHAT ARE APPOINTMENTS LIKE?
Your initial appointment will last approximately one hour, and during this time, we’ll go through your entire mental, physical and family health and medication history. We’ll spend some time discussing your symptoms, sensations, and discomfort. We have a great deal of experience speaking in-depth with patients, and, through our one-on-one conversation, we’ll validate your concerns, help you understand what you’re experiencing and provide you with a proper diagnosis. Having worked as a licensed practical nurse, registered nurse, and received training as family practice practitioner, our psychiatric nurse practitioner is able to recognize a wide variety of symptoms, diseases and disorders and how they interact with your system.
We will meet privately in a counseling office. Privacy and patient confidentiality are very important here. Although our team works collaboratively, we only do so in a controlled environment and with your permission. We seek to provide a safe, supportive and comfortable atmosphere where you feel open to share whatever is bothering you. Throughout our time together, we will be on the same team working toward the same goal—reducing your symptoms and improving your overall life.
We have extensive experience working with patients from different walks of life, including veterans and court-mandated patients. In our office you will be judged based on your symptoms and not on your appearance or past experiences. The more honest and open you are, the better we can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and the right resources for your particular needs, personality and goals. Depending on your situation, we may suggest that you participate in therapy, make positive lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, practice relaxation techniques, and more.
During our follow-up visits, which at first will occur every 2 to 4 weeks for a half hour, we will discuss how you’re responding to the medication. Our visits will become less frequent as your symptoms stabilize. The benefit of being treated at Integrated Counseling and Wellness is that you’re surrounded by a rich repertoire of resources. The compassionate and skilled staff allows for dynamic treatment approaches that can lead to holistic healing. If there’s something you can do to promote better health and long-term wellness, we will talk about it and find solutions that reduce or even resolve your symptoms. When we all work collaboratively as a community, you gain the support, resources and knowledge you need to set yourself up for a successful recovery.
