Dr. Brandon’s interventions target physical health, personal outlooks on life and others, and the available social support system. Psychotherapy can augment antidepressant medication but is also a "stand-alone" treatment when individuals choose to withdraw or avoid medications while pregnant, breastfeeding, or for other personal reasons.
Dr. Brandon completed her doctoral education in Clinical Psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and is board-certified in Clinical Psychology.
