Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Clinic

Overview

Comprehensive Care That’s All in the Family

Mental health issues don’t just affect a child — they affect his or her family. The experienced clinicians in the Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Clinic at Floating Hospital for Children understand how depression, anxiety, adjustment problems and other conditions can impact a child or teen’s parents and siblings, too.

As a result, we offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment that takes everyone’s concerns into account. Whether your child is coping with a psychiatric problem, a family issue, or both, we’ll help you meet all of these challenges. And we do so in a safe, comfortable environment so you can be confident that therapy will be a positive experience for your whole family.

A Holistic Approach to Mental Health

At the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic, we know that psychiatric problems don’t exist in a vacuum: Depression, anxiety, behavioral disorders and other conditions often occur in conjunction with life changes such as divorce or family loss, issues with school or friends, and more.

We take a holistic approach to care that treats kids as extraordinary, multifaceted people — not just patients. Led by John Sargent, MD, and Elina Cymerman, PhD, we offer a wide range of evidence-based options including therapy and medications. Our multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists and psychologists review cases with each other—and with you—regularly, so you can be sure that we always have your family’s needs in mind.
