Matt Weinlander, M.D.
I am an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology certified psychiatrist and received my Medical Degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin and completed psychiatric residency at the University of Michigan, where I served as Chief Resident. During residency, I had extensive training by world-class specialists in the cutting edge psychopharmacologic and interventional management of many psychiatric disorders.
I've been interested for many years in the intersection of physical and emotional health, mindfulness and meditation, and creativity and the arts. Professionally, these interests led me to explore psychiatric treatment in many different settings and with a wide variety of patients. I have worked in outpatient, inpatient, emergency, and consultative psychiatric settings. It was during these experiences that I developed an appreciation for how individuals, in their social and cultural context, develop over their lifetime and the role I could play in shining light on troublesome thought and behavior patterns.
I soon embarked on an exhaustive review of many schools of psychotherapy in the hopes of offering my patients the best possible care. I intensively studied existential and integrative psychotherapy and completed two fellowships in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I have also completed trainings in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy (IPT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and advanced training in couples and family therapy. I also have expertise in motivational interviewing and performance/sports psychology to assist with behavioral change and enhanced performance in personal and professional domains.
As a result of my experiences in psychopharmacology and psychotherapy, I am uniquely situated to provide my patients with a truly holistic approach. I collaborate closely with therapists to ensure my patients receive the very best care and all parties agree with and support the treatment plan. I also provide an integrated model of care in which I provide both medication management and psychotherapy. This allows the patient and I to get to know each other on a deeper level and opens up exploration of the relationship for therapeutic purposes. In addition, this approach allows for a cohesive, comprehensive approach with less chance for error.
