Psychiatric Services

  • If your child’s symptoms are in the moderate to severe range, a psychiatric evaluation may be recommended. This is an in-depth, focused examination that examines the role biological, psychological, and social factors may play in emotional and behavioral concerns. Our board certified psychiatrist is specialized in treating children and adolescents. She works with children and families to understand presenting issues, formulate diagnostic impressions, make treatment recommendations, and to provide related services such as medication management, therapy, and working collaboratively with other providers.
