    A pediatric/adolescent psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental and emotional conditions in young children and adolescents.
    These specialists study psychopathological disorders and their causes in order to prevent and identify them in their patients. These disorders may be caused by biological, psychosocial, genetic, demographic, or environmental factors, a patient's history, or any combination of these factors.
    Pediatric/adolescent psychiatrists treat patients through a variety of interventions including medical treatment, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, problem solving techniques, family therapy, parent training, psychodynamic therapy, and consultation with the patient's primary care physician or school professionals.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed.

Kelly could not be any better! She is incredibly knowledgeable, saavy, and caring. She is not only able to clearly and accurately identify issues, but just as capable aiding her patients in working through those issues.

Wonderful and caring!

I've been seeing Dr. Phelps for a little over a month, once a week. She is compassionate and understanding. I trust her and she keeps me focused on getting better. I was hesitant to pay $300 a session but she is WONDERFUL and worth more! Just as a tip, she does not take insurance, but you can submit it to your insurance and depending on your insurance, some of the cost may be covered. I did not want to spend the money or the time to see a therapist but now I realize an hour a week has made me a happier, better adjusted person.
