Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
We treat a wide variety of diagnosis such as: depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, eating disorders, ODD, IED and ADHD among others.
Not all children progress from infancy to adolescence without some difficulty along the way. In some children, these difficulties may progress to symptoms and disorders that interfere with their ability to function and result in emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, family conflicts, substance abuse, and even suicide. Recent studies have shown that 1 in 5 children and adolescents have a mental health problem. Common conditions seen are ADHD, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, OCD, adjustment disorders due to family, stressors, etc.
If you are concerned about your child, schedule an appointment for an evaluation at our office. We may recommend medication treatment, therapy or both depending on the situation. Many times family education and counseling are all that is needed to clarify and resolve the issues. We will also coordinate the care with therapists and pediatricians.
