Andrea M Brownridge, MD, JD, MHA | Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Metro Area

Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatrist

Andrea M. Brownridge, M.D. J.D. M.H.A. is dual board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Adult Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. “Dr. B” brings a diversity of professional and educational experiences to her clinical practice, living by the motto that “when I lose the capacity to learn, my life’s journey will have come to a close.”

Before admission to medical school in 2005, she practiced law for several years in the
areas of worker’ compensation and insurance liability defense. And yet, Dr. B is most proud of her undergraduate degree in industrial engineering, proclaiming “ramblin’ wrecks from Georgia Tech don’t simply graduate, We Get Out!”

Her commitment to mental health and wellness runs deep. As a medical student, she worked as a psychiatric technician in a residential treatment unit for adolescent girls with cumulative trauma and mental health histories. And incredibly, Dr. B lived in an inpatient psychiatric unit for one month as part of the Annenberg Addiction Psychiatry Training Program. She shared aspects of this once in a lifetime experience in Women In Psychiatry, an anthology of 21 accomplished women psychiatrists and their personal accounts of service in the field.

With her breadth of experience, she offers a comprehensive, personalized approach that is tailored to her patients’ individual needs.

Dr. Brownridge specializes in treating a variety of psychiatric conditions including, but not limited to, mood disorders, ADHD, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, and challenges facing those on the autism spectrum.
