Dr. Whipple's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Whipple "Dr. Whipple is a psychiatrist in private practice in Lawrence, KS. After attending the University of Virginia School of Medicine, I completed his psychiatric residency at the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry in 1990. I started my psychoanalytic training while working as a staff psychiatrist at Menninger in Topeka. I was a faculty member at the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry from 1990-1997 and graduated from the Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute in 2006. I am a member of the AMA, American Psychiatric Association and the American Association of Physician Leaders (AAPL). I am also a Fellow of the Institute of Coaching in Boston, MA. For inquiries, please contact me at (785) 841-5555. "
This content was provided by Dr. Whipple "My practice focus is based on an integrated, psychodynamic psychiatry model that utilizes both medication as well as psychotherapy and personal life coaching. I recognize the limitations of medications but believe they can assist in an individual's care. Equally important, however, I believe a good therapeutic relationship between the doctor and patient is critical to a successful outcome. I utilize a mentalization based psychotherapy approach to emotional and behavioral difficulties. My training in psychoanalysis and the dynamics within the therapeutic interaction also informs my attempts to help people achieve sustainable well-being. "

Dr. Whipple Says:
I take patient satisfaction very seriously. Please, when you fill out a survey, add any relevant comments to your feedback. I can only correct what I know went wrong and hope to continue to do what is right. Success in your psychiatric care starts with a good working alliance between the doctor and the patient.
