For All Seasons Announces Changes in Medical Staff


For All Seasons is proud to introduce their new medical team of adult, child and adolescent, and geriatric psychiatrists.  Leading the team is the Medical Director, Brenda C. Scribner, MD.  Dr. Scribner moved her psychiatric practice from Pennsylvania to the Eastern Shore in the late 1990s.  In addition to running the For All Seasons medical department in Easton, she is the only psychiatrist practicing in Caroline County, MD, in the For All Seasons Denton office and in another mental health facility in Federalsburg. She received her medical degree from Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California, and completed her psychiatric residency at Thomas Jefferson University Medical Center in Philadelphia.  Dr. Scribner had been offered the medical directorship at several regional outpatient mental health facilities, but she particularly chose to work for For All Seasons because of its outstanding trauma-certified mental health clinical team, its outreach to the Latino community through its bilingual services, its Rape Crisis Center and Victim Advocacy Program for those subjected to sexual assault and other violent crimes, and because of​ For All Seasons’ commitment to combat human trafficking.
