Each client is unique. One-size-fits-all approaches will never help you reach your full potential. We believe that wellness can only be achieved through close attention to detail, listening carefully and developing an integrated approach to treatment considering medication options, talk therapy, access to the latest research and help with lifestyle changes.

Donald J. Garcia, Jr, MD, Diplomate American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology: Dr. Garcia has been a licensed physician and board certified psychiatrist for over twenty five years. He is known for his comprehensive approach to evaluation and treatment, taking biological, psychological, social and cultural details into account as he gets to know his patients. Dr. Garcia received his undergraduate degree in Biology from Rice University and his MD from The University of Texas Medical Branch. After completing his internship at Parkland Hospital in Dallas and residency in General Psychiatry at The University of Texas Southwestern, Dr. Garcia established private practice in Alabama and was a Fellow in the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists for two years. After moving to Austin in 2003, Dr. Garcia has split his time between private practice and medical research
"Dr. Garcia took a full 90 min to meet with me on our first time. He took a very careful history, asked very relevant questions and seemed genuinely engaged. I have seen a lot of mental health professionals over the years and felt that he was more invested, curious and current than any other provider I have seen before. I felt that his approach was measured, he did not jump to any conclusions, but also took into account the severity of my symptoms in deciding how quickly to respond. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a well-trained, responsive, thoughtful and personable psychiatrist. He's a rare find in this age of 10-minute doctor's visits."
