Are you concerned about the mental well-being of your teen? Oftentimes, young adults have not yet been properly diagnosed for either a mild or severe mental health condition and, therefore, they may act out with disturbing or unusual behavior. Dr. Askins can help both parent and child understand when there is an imbalance in the body by doing a thorough and complete diagnostic evaluation.
Once a diagnosis is established, Dr. Askins provides comprehensive psychiatric care for adolescents with various mental health conditions, addictions and behavioral issues.
