Winona Belmonte, MD, is a board-certified adult psychiatrist at Serenity Mental Health Centers, serving the residents of Desert Ridge in Phoenix, Arizona.
She earned her medical degree from the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (UERMMMC) in Quezon City, Philippines. She then completed her residency at the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, specializing in psychiatric medicine. She went on to complete a fellowship in geriatric psychiatry and became board-certified in psychiatry. She gained valuable clinical experience, practicing psychiatry at Partners in Recovery in Mesa, Arizona, now called COPA Health.
Dr. Belmonte has almost 20 years of clinical experience, specializing in various mental health conditions, such as major depressive disorder (MDD), anxiety disorders, social phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), postpartum depression, autism spectrum disorders, and eating disorders.
Dr. Belmonte believes in educating her patients about their medical and psychiatric illnesses, allowing them to connect and collaborate with her on developing the best treatment solution. The overall results promote recovery and, in some cases, a total remission of symptoms.
She has a passion for addressing severely depressed, anxious, or otherwise affected patients that haven’t had success with traditional methods of treatment. She offers transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy and ketamine therapy to help her patients achieve better functionality and recover from the devastating effects of mental illness.
When Dr. Belmonte isn’t taking care of patients, she enjoys being around people and also likes the heartwarming company of her two dogs. Born and raised in the Philippines, she has a passion for traveling and hopes to visit all the places in the world she hasn’t seen yet.
Dr. Belmonte offers the highest level of care for her patients at Serenity Mental Health Centers.
