The Director of the Center for Behavioral Medicine, general psychiatrist Dr. Matthew S. Stubblefield has served the Northern California area in his outpatient psychiatric practices for the past 12 years. Dr. Stubblefield is probably best known for his expertise in diagnosing and treating ADD/ADHD and related disorders. Diagnosed and treated for ADD himself, he brings a unique perspective and understanding to those he sees professionally.

Dr. Stubblefield completed his Bachelors Degree in Psychobiology at UCLA before receiving his Doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He finished his residency in general psychiatry at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), where he first became interested in and conducted research in functional brain imaging and its use in psychiatry.

After his residency, Dr. Stubblefield joined the internationally-recognized neuropsychiatrist and best-selling author Daniel Amen, MD at the Amen Clinic for Behavioral Medicine in Fairfield, California. There, Dr. Stubblefield continued his research in SPECT brain imaging and its utility in clinical practice. Along with publishing his research, he received national recognition when he presented his findings at the American Psychiatric Association (APA) annual meeting in Washington, DC in 1999.

A keynote speaker, Dr. Stubblefield has spoken to numerous audiences around the country over the years including universities, colleges, support groups, and professional associations. Along with well over a decade of highly specialized professional work with patients with ADD/ADHD, Dr. Stubblefield has personal experience with ADD, which provides him greater understanding and appreciation for his patients' struggles.
