What to Expect

Leah Mott’s approach starts with a completing a consultation request form. This form helps prospective patients/clients and providers connect more efficiently and explore whether the requested relationship will be a good fit. As provider skill sets, availability, and financial policies vary, this form helps ensure you find the right provider for your needs.

If you are or believe you are experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, including suicidal or homicidal thinking, side effects to medication, or any other urgent or time-sensitive matter in which you need an immediate response, do not use this service.

My work with Leah so quickly turned things around for me for the better. I can’t express my gratitude enough.

My ability to get basic necessities done has drastically improved, my mood swings have lessened, my relationships don’t involve explosions from overstimulation, my weight has stabilized, and I bought myself enough time to be able to consider thoughts before just reacting to events around me. I’m still me, but life is manageable now and I can’t thank Lake Effect Wellness enough.

Leah really heard my concerns, the things I was struggling with on a daily basis. I finally at the age of 30 got a diagnosis for something I’ve been struggling with my entire life but could not mask behind anymore, which was a massive relief.

Leah did not just write me a prescription but she discussed all of my options first, and based on my concerns what would be the best route. I have had concerns ignored by so many doctors but she considered my well being every step of the way and followed up with each important concern on every session.


Find answers to questions about Lake Effect Wellness treatment and appointments.

What does a mental health practitioner do?

The role of the PMHNP is to assess, diagnose and treat the mental health needs of patients. Many PMHNPs provide therapy and prescribe medications for patients who have mental health disorders or substance abuse problems. 

A mental health nurse practitioner is a nurse who has earned either a Master’s or Doctorate degree with a focus on mental health.  In the state of Wisconsin, mental health nurse practitioners provide psychiatric assessments and diagnoses, medication prescription and management, as well as counseling.

What will happen during my first visit?

The first appointment is 60 minutes and is a time to get to know you – your journey so far and your goals for the future.  Together we will create a personalized plan for you and take time to answer any questions you may have.  

Appointment logistics:

  • Free parking is available in the covered parking structure on the first floor

  • The building is ADA accessible

  • We are located within INVIVO Wellness – take the elevator or stairs to the third floor

What is the length of a mental wellness appointment?

Appointments are 60 minutes.

How frequently will I need an appointment?

Oftentimes we begin with an appointment every other week for a few weeks, then once a month once more stability is reached, then every three to six months, or as needed.  However, this varies depending on the person.

How does exercise help my recovery?

Activity and exercise allow the body to heal faster by increasing circulation. Stretching and strengthening exercises restore your ability to move well and help you feel better.
