Integrative Mental Health Care for All Ages
We believe that with empathic, highly personalized and integrated care we can achieve bettwr outcomes for children, teens, young adults, adults and seniors. Our clinicians offer specialized diagnoses and treatment for mood and anxiety disorders, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), alcohol and substance abuse disorders (including suboxone), and psychiatric management of genetic disorders. We offer specialized services in psychopharmacology, brain modulation, pharmacogenetics, testing, individual and group psychotherapy, medication management for adults, medication management for children & teens, and medication management for seniors. We provide evidence-based psychotherapy in different modalities, psychological and educational testing. We also provide second opinion consultation and expert witness evaluations and testimony.
Our Approach
We believe that every patient is unique. While they might be experiencing similar symptoms to other patients, our job is to customize a treatment that will help them realize their fullest potential with a combination of proper medication, brain modulation, lifestyle suggestions, dietary supplements, and ongoing therapy. We use pharmacogenetic testing to help predict medication interactions and side effects and customize treatment for each patient. At WBMA our professionals have done extensive research, peer-reviewed publications and have developed patents for pharmacogenetic testing. We provide brain stimulation therapies involve the activation or inhibition of targeted areas of the brain. At WBMA we use a non-invasive, very well tolerated, FDA approved method called Transcranial Magnetic Sitmulation (TMS) to augment ongoing treatment. We also recognize that cultural differences can enhance quality of care and signficantly contribute to a more successful treatment strategy.
Keys to a healthy brain
Medication is not the only way to treat psychiatric disorders. We focus on six areas to achieve the best possible results: 1. Brain Development - Understanding the stages of brain maturation. 2. Nutrition - Understanding the impact of food and supplement choices on behavior. 3. Medicine - Finding the appropriate medication. 4. Sleep - Assessing and optimizing restorative sleep. 5. Support and Psychotherapy - Focusing on habit adaptation & emotional development. 6. Exercise - Adapting physical activity to lifestyle and abilities.
