It was my privilege to join in Dr.Woods’ mindfulness meditation group. He helped us explore the neuroscience behind happiness, love, and wisdom. As a novice meditator, I was skeptical about what impact I would encounter, but each session he equipped us with historical references, breathing techniques, and visualizations with great clarity and enthusiasm. I acquired new tools/skills to activate my brain states of calm, joy & compassion. Huge respect to Dr.Woods for all he does for our community!

Dr. Woods is by far the best healthcare professional I've known. I have been a patient of his for years now and Id recommend him to anyone. The care he has for his patience is one of a kind and you will never find that in just any doctor. He holds the patients best interest at the top priority. Dr woods and Alycia are always kind and offer the best care.

Dr. Woods says...

Medications alone are never the answer to mental and behavioral health problems. A balanced approach of therapy, diet exercise and education and medications when needed provide the best results.

i am happy to provide medical support for ADHD, Anxiety Disorders and Depression if your Mental Health Professional feels it would help you recover from whatever problems are bothering you.

in addition, I teach meditation, mindfulness and provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the conditions I treat.
