Services

We are located in San Antonio and have specialists to provide complete developmental evaluations, medical care, and coordination of services for children, teens and adults with attention problems, learning differences, autism spectrum disorders, and a wide variety of other emotional or behavior challenges.

Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics is a subspecialty of Pediatrics requiring General Pediatrics training followed by 2 years of additional specialized training. Developmental Behavioral Pediatricians firmly believe that a comprehensive evaluation is essential to properly diagnosing and developing a treatment plan for developmental and behavioral challenges, to ensure optimal outcomes for children with these lifelong conditions. Hidden neurodevelopmental weaknesses can manifest as behavior problems with frustration, anxiety, or loss of self-esteem. It is now also recognized that many teens and adults have suffered from early developmental issues which are now impacting their functioning and mental health. They also deserve comprehensive evaluation and treatment to reach their optimal potential. To this end we have expanded our assessments and treatments to include teens and adults.

Integrative Holistic Medicine is a much improved terminology that has replaced the older term “complementary and alternative medicine”, giving more of a sense of encompassing many healing traditions vs. this or that in addition to our standard western medicine approach. Also implied is the hope that it is more individualized or suited to the patient, but in no way a lesser treatment. Frequently ancient healing systems, such as Ayurveda or Traditional Chinese medicine, serve as a basis for some of the integrated techniques and both have a very long history of being complete treatment, fulfilling our need for “evidence based treatment”. Integrative Holistic Medicine principles encourages treatment of the whole person including mind, body and spirit. We strive to achieve these goals in complete evaluation and treatment of our patients and clients!

Our office and practitioners are in network with many major insurance companies and most of our assessments and treatments are covered with insurance benefits. If your insurance doesn’t cover our services, we offer competitive private pay pricing. We will also provide the medical and integrative treatments for patients who have received assessments by Psychologists or with school testing. Call us for more information if you have questions about your insurance benefits.

Yoga for Cosmic Consciousness

Yoga means to “yoke” or unite mind, body, and spirit and is in itself an integrative, holistic therapy. It is scientifically based yet spiritual, but it is not a religion. We teach small, individualized yoga classes, provide yoga therapy, and Thai yoga massage-also known as “lazy man’s yoga”! We also teach meditation, mantra, pranayama-breathing techniques to balance brain function mood and emotions.
