Our Clinical Team2024-01-11T17:50:40+00:00

We believe psychiatric care should be affordable and accessible to all communities

The average psychiatric care provider in New York is over 40 and caucasian, and the average cost of an appointment is more than $400. Finding affordable, empathetic care is harder than it should be and we believe in a better way.

We offer virtual access to a diverse clinical team who specialize in culturally competent care and medication management across a range of issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar, trauma, substance use and alcohol use disorders, mood disorders, and more.

What is a nurse practitioner in psychiatry?2023-08-24T20:35:17+00:00

A Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner manages psychiatric medication management. At ReKlame, your Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner can make clinical diagnoses and prescribe medication to safely and effectively provide treatment.

This is different from therapy, which is more about talking through your feelings with a therapist to learn better ways to cope. So, they both help your mental health, but in different ways: one with medicine, the other with conversation. We currently do not offer therapy at ReKlame.

What is Psychiatric Medication Management?2023-08-24T20:35:36+00:00

Psychiatric medication management is when a psychiatric nurse practitioner ensures your mental health medications are safe and effective. They assess your needs, prescribe medication, check how you’re doing, and adjust as needed.

How is it different from therapy?
Therapy is talking through thoughts and feelings with a mental health professional to learn coping skills.

What is a Care Team at ReKlame?2023-08-24T20:36:03+00:00

At ReKlame, your Care Team is made up of two key people: a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and a Care Navigator.

Your Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner makes clinical diagnoses and prescribes medication to provide safe and effective treatment. 

Your Care Navigator is like your personal healthcare guide. They help you navigate through your journey, from scheduling appointments to connecting you with helpful resources. They’re there to make your healthcare experience as easy and stress-free as possible!

Your Care Team is here to support you every step of the way on your path to better mental health.

How long are appointments?2023-08-24T23:36:18+00:00

Your initial consultation will take about 45 to 60 minutes. After that, your follow-ups will be shorter, around 15 to 20 minutes each. How often you need to visit will depend on what you specifically need.

What can I expect during the initial appointment?2023-08-24T20:36:45+00:00

At your first appointment, your provider will get to know you and your mental health and medical history. It’s a safe space – you can ask or share anything! Your treatment will be unique to you. After the visit, you’ll get a clear plan and resources for your mental health journey. We’re here to support your healing journey.
