Over the past 20 years, Dr. Schulte has had the opportunity to work with individuals and groups of various make-ups, notably including serving in the public sector supervising an inpatient unit dedicated solely to treatment of extremely difficult to treat, violent, and/or schizophrenic adult patients, and then in the private sector in an inpatient unit treating children and adolescents.  Dr. Schulte has always maintained a private, outpatient, practice working with children and adults as well.

Dr. Schulte is board certified in both Adult Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and employs both Psychotherapy (talking therapy) and Psychopharmacology (medication) in his work with children and adults to address depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders, ADD and ADHD, psychotic disorders, addictive disorders, bi-polar disorder, autism, and Asperberger's syndrom.   Dr. Schulte also has expertise in forensic psychiatry, though he currently prefers to limit his practice to clinical matters.  While he does have extensive experience and expertise in  traditionally "treatment resistant" conditions, Dr. Schulte is also capable  of and does enjoy working with moderate to high functioning adolescents and adults in both individual and couples' therapy.
