Dr. Leroy Arenivar is a board-certified psychiatrist offering services to children, adolescents and adults in California, Texas, and Washington. Dr. Arenivar has an array of clinical interests; however, his expertise includes child psychiatry, anxiety disorders and ADHD.
Dr. Arenivar became interested in mental and behavioral health care in medical school where he realized that his desire to hear people’s stories was best suited for psychiatry. He continues to be interested in the evolution of psychiatric care from the innovative delivery through telehealth to being able to offer new treatment modalities like Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
Dr. Arenivar has worked as an attending psychiatrist for the past eight years, primarily treating children and adults in the outpatient setting. His approach to care is to focus on building rapport with patients so that patients trust his recommendations and at the same time feel comfortable talking about their apprehension regarding psychiatric medications. He is focused on making sure patients understand how medicine can help improve their condition in combination with other approaches like psychotherapy and self-care.
In his non-clinical time, Dr. Arenivar enjoys watching movies, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors of Austin, TX!

Martha Frame is a licensed clinical social worker offering services to children, adolescent and adult residents in New Jersey, New York and North Carolina. She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are anxiety and mood disorders, spiritual and faith-based counseling, school refusal, grief counseling, child and adolescent counseling and DBT. In her practice, Martha believes that our earliest life experiences and the course of our development shape our sense of self and others. When there has been damage in these life experiences and relationships, it can affect our perspective of self, our response to others and the course of our lives. She believes and practices that the construct of the professional therapeutic relationship is designed to provide the opportunity for an individual to repair and resolve these central experiences and to experience healing in the self.
As a child, Martha grew up in a family that valued helping others. Her home was often a refuge for people in crisis and she was able to observe her mother counsel and guide these individuals, which inspired her to pursue this work. Her mother later became a marriage and family therapist and was a mentor for her.
In her free time, Martha enjoys cooking and has catered and cooked in restaurants in the past. She is also a writer and studied creative writing as an undergraduate. In 1970, she made a transatlantic voyage on a Swedish ocean liner and lived in Holland for three years.
