As a psychiatrist, my approach is to understand an individuals strengths and goals, while evaluating for mental disorders. Treatment should take the form of using which intervention, if any, will best help the patient.
This may include medication, therapy, or obtaining social services, such as housing.
Basic human needs are the foundation upon which other interventions should be placed. The basic needs include safety, housing, and nourishment. Only after these are addressed can other treatment options logically follow.
Dr. Martinez prescribes medication for ADD/ADHD, mood disorders, substance use disorders, and more.
Types of therapy provided include Individual Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, and Trauma Focused Therapy.
Social services and housing referrals can be provided.
