Dr. Wittlin has a holistic approach to treating patients. He understands symptoms as a product of biological, social, psychological and potentially spiritual discord in a patient’s life. As such he utilizes medications along with individual psychotherapy, couples and family therapy.
Dr. Wittlin provides adolescent and adult psychotherapy and medication in a warm, personal setting. He also works with families and couples.
After practicing psychiatry for 15 years, Dr Wittlin saw psychiatry going down the wrong path, a path where psychiatrists only prescribe drugs while social workers and psychologists do therapy.
What a harsh time to be growing up. In my thirty-ﬁve years of practice, I have never seen so much psychiatric illness in our children and teenagers. I see kids that feel all alone, scared or anxious, bored, depressed, irritable or angry.
Dr. Wittlin was enormously helpful in treating my grandson’s bipolar disorder. Not only did he accurately diagnose his condition, but he was instrumental in guiding our entire family through the process of monitoring/adjusting medications, and helping us to recognize the need to modify our own behaviors (adults as well as our teen’s).
I was afraid of my own son
I can only tell you that after almost three years of monthly sessions (including family therapy) and medicine compliance, my son is in 10th grade on the honor roll.... I am sure that if my son had not been treated by Dr. Wittlin that he would not be having the multitude of successes he has had and that he might not even be here.
