Brent Turnipseed, M.D.

Medical Director

Dr. Turnipseed, or “Dr. T”, is a native Austinite, board-certified psychiatrist, and co-founder of Roots Behavioral Health. He and Andrea founded Roots with the initial goal of making psychiatric care more accessible to central Texans. In a short amount of time, Roots needed additional providers to help even more people in need. By working with physician assistants, Dr. T and his team have been able to meet the community’s demand for superior behavioral healthcare. As Roots’ Medical Director, Dr. T is continually striving to elevate our standard of care.

Innovative approaches on Dr. T’s radar: psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, gut-brain health and the microbiome, inflammation as it relates to brain health, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, pro-brain diets, and exercise for optimal brain health.
