Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
As a parent, it’s very difficult to see your child struggle and not be able to help. Learn how our Child & Adolescent Psychiatry is different. Too often the first or only solution we turn to is medication, but in some cases, therapy, nutrition, and exercise can be just as vital. For these reasons, we typically prefer to try therapy before prescribing medication whenever possible.
In many cases, medication is only needed for a brief duration, serving as a temporary bridge while other treatments take effect.
Conditions Treated With Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Psychiatric Medicine Made Less Difficult
We know the decision to give your child or teen medication is not an easy one. Our process involves thoughtful discussions with you as a parent or other caregiver, as well as school teachers or counselors when appropriate.
