The teenage years are a time of transition, a time when children are trying to establish their identity and forge their independence. It is a time when many physical illnesses occur and, for many teenagers, a time when they experience many emotional imbalances for the first time, including anxiety, phobias, depression and behavioural problems.

Not only have we treated our share of young patients with aches, pains, and football injuries, but also we have worked with kids who were struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, insomnia, and stress.”
