The innate desire to work with parents, and support them and their children is one the reasons for my passion for child/adolescent psychiatry. It is our mission at Unity Clinics to aid all children and adolescents struggling with emotional, and or behavioral concerns to overcome these challenges, and guide them and their families to a path of recovery, growth and success. When a child struggles, the whole family struggles, but there is support and guidance at Unity Clinics.
