Psychiatry is the branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.
Dr. Ellen Johnson is Triad Counseling Center’s on site psychiatrist. Dr. Johnson is a Doctor of Psychiatry, Michigan State University.
Dr. Johnson conducts comprehensive psychological evaluations and medication reviews for children, adolescents and adults who are current clients at Triad Counseling Center. It is the policy of Dr. Johnson and Triad Counseling Centers that Dr. Johnson’s work with clients begins with the outpatient therapy of the counselors here at Triad. This means that appointments with Dr. Johnson are obtained through the recommendation of our therapists, and attendance with them must be maintained throughout treatment with Dr. Johnson.
For children and adolescents, both parents or guardians are required to attend the intake session with Dr. Johnson and for anyone under 18 at least one parent or guardian must attend follow-up and medication review sessions.
Triad Counseling Centers and Dr. Johnson also participate in medication monitoring, a unique process that allows Dr. Johnson to review how the medications that she prescribes are working in your body through an oral sample at her interval discretion, either each 30, 60, or 90 days.
