Medical Team & Clinical Team

Hans Watson, DO

Chief Medical Officer

In addition to being a proven leader in military combat, graduating from medical school, completing a four-year general psychiatry residency and passing the psychiatry and neurology specialty board exam, Dr. Watson dedicated thousands of additional hours of study and training to become one of the few psychiatrists that has the extra skills/knowledge necessary to be a recognized expert in neurology, psychotherapy, forensic psychiatry, PTSD and more.  Additionally, he is a flight surgeon.

This extra training and experience led to Dr. Watson helping so many people that he was requested as an author of a textbook chapter on psychotherapy, produced medical journal articles/studies, is a professor, is an expert evaluator for legal proceedings and he is a highly sought out keynote speaker.

The best part of Dr. Watson’s talent is that he uses this expertise and his natural teaching ability to help make complex and difficult situations or topics understandable. He believes that psychiatric care is most successful when the doctor applies their knowledge to help the patient understand “the why” and together they become equal partners in treatment decisions.

Jeremy Schultz, LCSW

Jeremy has been involved in the treatment of substance use disorder for quite some time now. He feels there is no time to waste so he has developed the skill of moving quickly past the presenting symptoms and arriving at the real underlying contributing factors of substance use disorder. His skill and passion also lay in helping people themselves clearly understand the origin of these factors, how they relate to their current struggles and most importantly how to take the next credible steps toward sobriety. Jeremy relies heavily on a mind-body focus to assist patients in taking on a more realistic view of themselves, their world and their personal challenges.
