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 an integrative, whole-person approach. With background in both traditional mental health and integrative therapies, Dr. Collinge encourages attention to sleep quality, nutrition, exercise, and a healthy environment as foundations of mental health and well-being. He recognizes that what we commonly think of as psychological problems can often be helped through change in health-related behaviors and practices. He works with mindfulness-based approaches to stress, life transitions, trauma, and relationships as well as energy psychology techniques (EFT) and insight-oriented dialogue.
