As a licensed child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist, I typically treat kids between the ages of four and 19. If that process points toward treating more members of a family, including parents, I’m certified to do so, and I’ll suggest but never insist on it.
Above all, I look for ways to connect with my patients because connection opens the windows to discovery and the doors to change. While education and training honed my skills as an observer, I’m a born seeker. This combination allows me to bring special attention to each patient: When and why does a laugh change pitch? How can we build on improved sibling communication? Every question invites progress.
