Deepa Khushlani, MD Medical Director of the Child & Adolescent ClinicOur clinics provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations and care for children and adolescents through the age of 17. In our clinics, child and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists and fellows offer individualized care to meet the needs of each of our patients.  Our Whole Child Clinic works with the child and family together to optimize care and includes special attention to education, nutrition, lifestyle and cultural factors. We provide integrative services that provide a comprehensive approach to mind-body-spirit health and wellness.

During the first session, it is important that caregivers be present. For two-parent families, both parents are highly encouraged to attend. For single-parent families, another key caregiver is invited to attend (if applicable). After the first appointment, we may request to contact your child’s school and therapist.
