Child Psychiatry

If your child is having problems in school, at home, or with friends, and you think it might be due to a mental or emotional disturbance, it may be time to seek help from a child and adolescent psychiatrist.


Why do parents and families bring their child to a child and adolescent psychiatrist?

Parents and family members often worry when their child seems to have a problem which is related to being sad, lonely, rebellious, inattentive, forgetful/disorganized, easily agitated or frustrated, or involved with the wrong crowd (i.e. peers who use drugs or have conduct problems). They may be concerned about their child’s development, eating or sleeping patterns, and how they are relating with family, friends, and other people at school, church, or other social circles. The Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist is specially qualified to understand the full range of factors related to emotional problems and mental disorders that can negatively impact children and teens.
