College Students

The transition to college, like any milestone, involves both gains and losses. While there are many new and exciting academic, recreational, and social opportunities, it is also common for students to experience some feelings of anxiety, loneliness, homesickness, or difficulty finding their place. When transient, these feelings can be normal. When persistent, especially if there is interference with academic and social enjoyment and success, an evaluation can help determine the source of difficulty and what might help. Sometimes a brief treatment or targeted intervention may be all that is needed. Other times, symptoms on the surface are part of longer-term patterns that would be best addressed by deeper and more intensive treatment. College can be an excellent time to engage in such treatment.

Are you already working with a therapist or psychiatrist and looking to directly transition your care?

Don't wait until move-in day!

Reaching out over the summer will allow for:

  • A free 20-minute phone or Zoom conversation for us to meet

  • Direct communication between myself and your current therapist/psychiatrist prior to your arrival on campus

A Note to Parents

It can be a challenge to balance dependence and independence in your relationship with your college-aged child. This balance may feel especially hard to find when your child has struggled with their mental health in the past. Choosing a child & adolescent psychiatrist is a way to ensure that your child is cared for by someone with expertise in development and parent-child relationships - someone who can help you both navigate this change in your relationship. While I recommend that your child be the one who reaches out to inquire about treatment, I will also listen to your concerns and perspective as well as provide recommendations regarding the nature of your involvement in your child's care.
