About Caleb Alan Whitenack, MD
Dr. Whitenack wants to be a voice of hope for those who feel hopeless. Originally on track to become a pediatrician, he fell in love with psychiatry once he realized that it allowed him the opportunity to treat the whole person and make a life changing difference for people. When working with patients he uses a psychodynamic approach, drawing on aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and supportive and motivational therapy in his treatment. If medication is needed, Caleb provides multiple options and gives the pros and cons of each so that the patient is able to decide what is the best option for them. He and his patients work as a team with the same goals of recovery, stability and contentment. Dr. Whitenack strives to provide excellent, companionate, non-judgmental care with humility and integrity. He also has extensive experience working in women’s mental health and has found that treating women for disturbances during perimenstrual, peripartum, postpartum, breastfeeding and perimenopausal times have been some of the most rewarding parts of his work. Through his experience, Dr. Whitenack sees repeatedly how support and treatment hugely impacts these women’s lives and the lives of their children and family. It makes him happy to be able to provide care for women during these life events. When not working as a mindcare provider, Caleb, originally from Denver, CO, enjoys the mountains, snowboarding, good food, homebrewing beer and traveling with his family.

“Dr Whitenack was extremely attentive, listened to my needs and concerns, and trusted me to be honest about my mental health history. Best case scenario for a first time mental health appointment.”
“Dr. Whitenack was wonderful. High energy (in a good way), straight forward, and to the point, but also very compassionate. I didn’t have to reach down into my soul, pull my guts out, and struggle to articulate…he asked questions that touched on every single thing I was feeling, then told me what I had, suggested what I should take to help, and more importantly, told me why.”
“Dr. Caleb Whitenack at this location on Shannon Rd is the most competent psychiatric professional I have ever visited. I highly recommend him.”
