Dr. Gutierrez was referred to us from this PTO website and other friends. She was able to diagnose and use a genetic test to find the right ADHD med for my child. She didn't "milk" us for multiple office visits. My child also has anxiety and social problems that Dr. Gutierrez also quickly noted and gives her coping skills. She talks to me afterward and makes me realize that as frustrated as I get with the ADHD, my child can still be a successful, happy person. Our lives changed greatly with the ADHD meds, after years of talk therapy thinking this was all an anxiety issue.

We followed most of program but not every aspect. There was improvement when they said there would be but this takes MONTHS. It is not a quick fix. If you decide to try conventional psych meds please consider doing DNA testing FIRST (GeneSight) because it will list which meds may work and which are likely to present side effects! I wish someone had given us this advice! It is well worth the cost.

http://cypressprofessionalgroup.com/cypress-group-location.html
My child was having multiple issues with anxiety and depression and was barely making it to school and her grades and mood tanked. Every other therapist or doctor we took her to just saw her anxiety and depression and tried to treat that. The medications she was put on made everything even worse. We brought her to Dr. Bernardino as a last ditch effort before partial hospitalizaion. Dr. B diagnosed her for the underlying disorder causing the anxiety and depression and, with the correct medication, she turned around immediately and everything started getting better. Dr. B is expensive and does not take insurance but the wait to get into a child/adolescent psychiatrist is 2 months minimum everywhere else and we needed immediate help. I think my child would still be struggling right now if I hadn't decided to contact Dr. B. I hope she is able to help your child as well if you decide to call her.

My son had to withdraw from college due to anxiety and depression. We tried a variety of treatments, medicinal and behavioral, and it wasn't helping. We chose this wilderness therapy program in Costa Rica (generally for people 18 and up). He is now doing great - back to the smiley, poised young man he was, back at college and doing great. He needed this time away from "real" life to regain his confidence, learn skills to deal with anxiety, and confront his perfectionism.

Dr. Ralph Cusick, who works with Stillpoint Mental Health, has been my son's psychiatrist for over 4 years now. He has helped my son and our family through his depression and anxiety with great attention to detail and concern for my son's well-being. I highly recommend Stillpoint Mental Health, and Dr. Cusick in particular, for any child who is suffering with any depressive and/or anxiety disorders. Dr. Cusick has several decades worth of experience to his name, and I have never felt as if he has made any suggestions that are not entirely in the best interested of my son and our family. tplfthcpto

If OCD/anxiety if symptoms had an acute onset when younger and has other symptoms such as restrictive eating, sleeping issues, rages etc it is worth looking into as cure is in antibiotics, not psychiatric meds.

Dr. Mike assessed and treated our son following a concussion. What seemed like a minor concussion to start, actually impacted his limbic system impacting his sleep patterns, mood, balance and eye tracking. He had significant issues with insomnia, anxiety and depression. All of the treatment was covered by BCBS, with the exception of the assessment ($500). Was worth every penny as we were desperate to help our son regain his quality of life.
