Consultation is available for professionals and organizations interested in program development and research in integrative health care services. William has served as a scientific review administrator and peer reviewer for National Institutes of Health and Department of Defense research programs. He is also Associate Director of the newly formed Integrative Palliative Care Institute, which provides consulting and continuing education programs for health care professionals.


Mental Health Services

Counseling and psychotherapy are most successful with a whole-person approach. With background in both traditional mental health and integrative therapies, Dr. Collinge encourages attention to metabolic health as well as sleep quality, stress reduction, and self-awareness as foundations of mental health and well-being. What we commonly think of as psychological problems or "mental disorders" can often be helped through changes in self-care, food choices and other health-related behaviors. He works with mindfulness-based approaches to stress, life transitions and trauma, energy psychology techniques (EFT), and insights into brain functioning from research in metabolic psychiatry.
