My Approach to Care

As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, my focus is working with youth and their families to help create positive change. The most important part of this process is building relationships and trust with you. This includes actively listening to you and your child and knowing the right questions to ask to fully understand and evaluate areas of concern. Through this evaluation, a diagnosis is made. Then, we will work together to develop a treatment plan to meet the unique needs of your child and family.

My approach includes working with your child and you as the parent. I will also include any other individuals you feel would be helpful such as teachers, caregivers, etc. Depending on the child and situation, I will meet with you as a group and also with the parents and child individually.

My specialty is working with children and teens, and their families, to help in areas such as:

  • Depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder
  • Anger management/defiant, oppositional behaviors
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD)
  • Autism spectrum and intellectual/developmental concerns
  • Abuse and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
  • Eating disorders
  • Behavior and school problems
  • Pattern of mood swings
  • Significant life changes and relationship difficulties

Treatment involves evidence-based care and a holistic approach. This may include a combination of medication management, coordination of care with other therapies, and learning and developing new skills.

Dr. Wittry does a great job of connecting with adolescent patients and getting them to open up about their feelings. He also does a good job of being patient and listening.

Dr. Wittry is probably the best there is. Have had others that should not have a license.

I feel Dr. Wittry was able to calmly question my daughter about her poor behavior choices, but thinking about it now, I would have liked more references to know if a Psychology evaluation would help her. I don't feel any psychiatrists consider anything about kid's menstrual history which is still random after 3 years.

Dr. Wittry is the best of providers. He's thoughtful, he listens, he takes time, he knows my child, he knows our family. We don't know what we would do without him, we're so grateful.

He's a good doctor. He's listening very well. He's asking a lot of questions and he's very patient and he's even took a lot of time to explain your situation.

Dr. Wittry asked more intelligent questions and pulled out valuable information from my son's immense medical history like no other provider has done to date. We're so grateful to have found a doctor who's willing to invest the time to actually understand our son's unique case.

I have never had a mental health provider that is better with children than Dr. Wittry. He listens better than any mental health provider I have ever been to. He is the best of the best.
