All of our providers are able to help with an evaluation for mental health concerns - whether it be depression, anxiety, ADHD or behavior problems.  Medication prescribing may need to be managed by a physician within the practice, or if necessary, we are able to refer you on to a child/adolescent psychiatrist for further assistance.

We are excited to welcome Kate Barnes, LISW-S to the WSP team in April 2022! Kate is a licensed clinical social worker who will be providing mental and behavioral health services, as well as developmental screening and coaching at WSP. She has been working in community mental health care providing care for children, adolescents and families. She has a special interest in trauma, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and mental health prevention work.
