David Brenner (MPAS, PA-C)

DavidI am a psychiatric physician assistant with 16 years’ experience in a variety of settings, including hospital-based and office-based practices.

I specialize in medication management of a variety of mental health conditions. These include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders, and certain personality disorders. As mental health issues often stem from biological and psychological factors, I may also recommend talk therapy or lifestyle modifications.

I treat each patient as an individual and work collaboratively to create and maintain a medication regimen that best suits you. My goal is to address your unique concerns with compassion and arrive at treatment plan that maximizes your functioning and satisfaction with life.

I currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO*, Cigna, Medicare, United Healthcare, and self-pay.

*Please note that I am not part of the Blue Value Network and am unable to accept patients with Blue Value at this time.

Julie Small (PMHNP/BC)

Julie I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with over 10 years of experience working with adults in outpatient mental health clinics. I perform comprehensive psychiatric assessments, diagnose, recommend treatment, and when appropriate, prescribe medication in treating a wide range of mental health and brain disorders including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD, anxiety, OCD, personality disorders, ADHD, and intellectual/developmental disabilities. As mental health disorders can have their origin in biological and psychological factors, medication management may be one modality in your treatment. I also recommend individual therapy, DBT group therapy, EMDR, healthy eating habits, and various forms of exercise including yoga and Thai Chi.

I worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years prior to going back to school to complete my master’s degree in psychiatric nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I count it a privilege and a blessing to work together with a client to choose the best fit of treatments in the process of building a life worth living.
Although we are originally from Kentucky, my husband and I have lived in the New Hanover County area since 1990 with a brief 3 years spent in Minneapolis, Minnesota. North Carolina was calling us back! I enjoy spending time outdoors, walking and gardening. I also like reading fiction, practicing yoga, and spending time with friends and our family; 3 sons, 2 daughter in laws, and 5 grandchildren.

Eric Guendner (MA, LPA, LCAS)

Evidence based practice is at the core of my practice and  I believe in the importance of delivering treatment that has been shown to be effective for each client’s concerns. Consistent with the evidence-based model, my practice is informed by current research findings in the area.

I use the specialist rather than the generalist model of care. I am board certified  in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and  certified in Prolonged Exposure for PTSD and maintain up to date continuing education, seek any needed supervision, and keep up with relevant research findings in those areas. As such, I am particularly qualified to work with clients who seek treatment for issues related to  Borderline Personality Disorder, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Use Disorders and PTSD. I believe that if you are suffering from a specific issue, you deserve to receive the appropriate care for that issue. If I do not have expertise that fits your needs, I am happy to make a referral to an expert who is a better fit.

I received both my BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Substance Abuse Treatment Psychology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently a Psychological Associate and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist
