Our pediatric psychologist at CHKD provide evaluations, behavioral assessments and therapeutic recommendations for children struggling with psychological and behavioral issues.

Our goal is to work with children and their families to best address the psychological well-being of our patients.

We consult with medical teams throughout the hospital to identify and address conditions that require psychology therapies. Our department also provides therapeutic recommendations, particularly regarding behavioral modification. Child and family therapy is available on an in- and out-patient basis, using cognitive behavioral therapy when appropriate.
