Board Certified in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Treating children and adolescents from preschool through college, Dr. Fink brings years of experience and expertise to her care for children with a range of challenges including mood disorders, ADHD, anxiety, developmental disabilities, and autism spectrum disorders.
Strength Based Problem Solving
Dr. Fink starts her evaluation by listening to the child and family’s story. Effective problem solving and treatment grow out of respectful dialogue between the doctor and those she cares for. Solutions are most effective when rooted in the strengths that already live in the child, family, and community.
Whole Child Focus
Dr. Fink focuses on the whole child — understanding that the challenges children face are not the whole story. Each child’s unique developmental story — within the framework of their family and community — is central to clarifying the problems and developing strategies to solve those problems.

What happens at a psychiatric evaluation?
A psychiatric evaluation is a chance for Dr. Fink to meet the child and family, to obtain important history and medical information and to get to know the child in a bit more detail. It is usually just talking and playing. Dr. Fink asks the family to fill out some paperwork both before and after the first visit to help her understand the concerns and challenges facing a child and his or her family. If you have submitted other testing or reports Dr. Fink will review those as well.
The evaluation will end with a discussion of Dr. Fink’s observations, assessments and recommendations, as well as answering any questions or concerns that the child or family has raised. Sometimes there will be a need for more meetings before making firm treatment decisions but you will always leave with plan that everyone understands and is comfortable with.
