Childhood and adolescence are key stages of development. Individuals experience a wide variety of biological, emotional, social, familial and cognitive changes during these formative years. These changes sometimes manifest in rough patches – some longer than others. Sometimes these rough patches can resolve on their own but sometimes additional support is needed for optimal navigation.
Potomac Psychiatry can help ease these stages through psychiatric support and/or through cognitive behavioral individual or family therapy. Potomac Psychiatry can help parents and children handle these rough patches confidently; learn new skills/ insights to manage future issues effectively; gain support and age-appropriate interventions/strategies for issues outside of one’s control (through medication/behavior management); engage guidance counselors/teachers, as needed, for a full understanding of the concerns; and consistently provide high levels of communication and coordination of child psychiatric and therapeutic care.
