Benefits of Working With a Pediatric Psychologist

Behavioral health specialists in pediatrics support children, adolescents, and teens as they navigate developmental challenges and the many psychosocial stressors they face at home, at school, and with friends. We treat mental, emotional, social, and behavioral conditions while building towards optimal health and well-being. We support your patients and their families as they manage distress, adjust to illness, and increase resiliency and adaptive coping strategies. We strive to be an integral part of the treatment team, working alongside our physician colleagues to provide holistic care, improve treatment outcomes, and enhance patients’ quality of life.
