Edmund P. “Ted” Williams, IV

Founder, MD

Personal Description & Philosophy of Treatment:

Psychiatrist, Dr. Ted Williams, founder of Genesis Behavioral Health in 2002, began his medical career in Family Medicine – not Psychiatry – which may be one reason why he and his clinic maintain a perspective of mental health treatment in the context of ‘family’, and of you as a ‘whole person’ (one’s overall mental, physical, and spiritual health). Dr. Williams’ goal is to provide a clinic where patients find cutting edge, compassionate, and comprehensive ‘whole-person’ psychiatric treatment in a warm, professional setting.” In addition, he believes that a person’s growth in faith and relationship with God can be an important part of their healing, especially because many of life’s struggles don’t have easy answers. His approach to treatment is warm, non-judgmental, and professional, and he will talk about faith as much or as little as you like.

No matter how bleak today is – you cannot see the hope that is on the other side of the horizon. You do not know the hope that lies behind the horizon.
