Psychiatry

With our staff of seven behavioral therapists, a child psychiatrist, two child psychiatry nurse practitioners and a specialist in ADHD training, PHCA has an extraordinarily deep and skilled array of services in the treatment of children's behavioral, psychological, psychiatric, and school related problems.

Please note:  These services are only provided to patients who receive their pediatric care at PHCA.

We welcome transfers of patients under age 18 who wish to receive psychiatric or short term counseling services at PHCA.

We cannot provide these services for all psychiatric and behavioral disorders.
