Clinical Psychology

Published On 07/11/2011

Our Clinical Psychologists work together with many pediatric sub-specialties to ensure the most comprehensive care for children in the Mid-South. Clinical psychologists are specially trained to treat the specific needs of children and adolescents. 

Areas of expertise include the diagnosis and treatment of the following:

  • Developmental disabilities
  • Autism and mental disabilities
  • Stress and anxiety disorders
  • Childhood depression
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Illness related emotional disorders
  • Child abuse
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Family counseling

Clinical psychologists provide consultations and testing for children who have difficulties adjusting at home or in the school environment. Because every child is unique, the plan of care is based on his or her individual needs. Referrals to clinical psychologists typically come from the child's pediatrician. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's development, talk with your child's pediatrician.
