Care Provided

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
    ADHD may cause your child to be inattentive, impulsive and perform below their intellectual level in school. If untreated ADHD can result in academic failure, disrupt family relationships, and may increase the likelihood of depression and conduct problems. Comprehensive psychiatric and psychological assessment and treatment are the keys to helping these children and teens become healthy and successful adults. We employ a combination of medication and behavioral interventions and specialize in explaining to you how they affect your child.
  • Anxiety/Depression
    If your child or teen is sad or irritable much of the time, this could be more than just the normal “blues.” Our clinicians employ a combined treatment package of medication and psychotherapy approaches tailored specifically to assist your child or teen and family with managing emotions, thoughts and behaviors.
  • Bipolar Disorder (Manic-Depressive Disorder)
    • Does your child or teen go into unexplained rages or anger outbursts?

    • Does your child or teen have excessive energy or use very poor judgment all the time?

    • Does your child have ADHD that has not responded to the usual medication?

    Your child or teen might have bipolar disorder and our doctors are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating this disorder. The Department of Psychiatry is a National Institute of Mental Health Center for the study of Bipolar Disorder. New treatments for mania and depression are available through the Center and the Department’s Mood Division.

  • Learning Problems and Developmental Delay
    According to the National Institutes of Health, one in seven Americans have some type of learning problem and parents are often the first to recognize that their child learns differently from others. While children and teens with learning problems are often as smart as their peers, they can have unexpected difficulty with basic academic tasks such as reading, writing and math and difficulties with memory and understanding visually presented information. They may also have trouble with processing visual and auditory information despite normal visual and auditory acuity. Problems with attention and depression are often also present.
