Board Certified in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Welcome

All children and adolescents deserve to be able to grow and develop to their optimal ability. Often, mental health issues can get in the way of this.

I provide evaluation, diagnosis and medical treatment for the following symptoms:

  • Anxiety disorders including Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Trichotillomania
  • Mood Disorders including Depression, Bipolar Mood Disorder and Dysthymia
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Psychotic Disorders
  • Somatic Disorders
  • Behavior problems

I discuss the benefits and risks of recommended treatment options.

I coordinate care with therapists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, parents and caregivers, as we all share the same goal of returning your child or adolescent to his/her highest level of functioning possible.

I refer psychological testing and therapy to specialized professionals in the community with whom I work closely. I communicate with therapists after each appointment so that we are all working toward a common goal.
