Understanding and supporting the mental health needs of our children and adolescents is critical in helping them to prosper. Mentis Psychiatry offers comprehensive evaluations and treatment plans that integrate with a child’s full support system - inclusive of their family, therapist, pediatrician, and school.
The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has set forth parameters, principles, and clinical practice guidelines for psychiatric clinicians. In order to maintain best practices, I adhere to the treatment recommendations set forth by the AACAP for the assessment and management of children, adolescents, and their families seeking mental health care. It is my objective to stay informed of current literature and advances in the treatment for youth with disruptive behavior disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, and spectrum disorders.
As a seasoned practitioner and a parent of adult children, I bring an intuitive element to each evaluation, identifying the less obvious or insidious features that children are often unable to communicate.
Together we will create a positive and safe environment and begin the journey to better mental health.
