Dr. John Whittier is a board-certified psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, PTSD, insomnia, bipolar disorder, and ADHD.
Dr. Whittier is primarily focused on medication management of general psychiatric conditions. He approaches each client as an individual, using the one-hour initial intake to get a comprehensive look at each person’s unique needs. From there he works with his clients to provide options and flexibility in the treatment plan utilizing a combination of supportive therapy, medications, and evidence-based alternative therapies. Follow-ups typically last 20 to 30 minutes with the goal to evaluate the treatment plan and adjust accordingly. He also maintains a psychodynamic psychotherapy panel for hour-long appointments where he works with his clients to understand developmental and relational patterns that contribute to their symptoms.
