Dr. Whittier approaches each client as an individual, utilizing a combination of psychotherapy, medications, and evidence-based alternative therapies to address each person’s unique needs. As a member of the psychotherapy scholars at the University of Colorado, he has learned to take a comprehensive look at the factors that influence mental health in order to treat the person as more than the disorder.
