Child and Adolescent Psychological Evaluations are a vital first step in diagnosing a mental or developmental disorder. At Life Bridge Kids, we identify a vast array of psychological conditions that may interfere with mental wellness, including those that manifest during a child’s development. In addition to our mental health screenings, we provide Autism, ADHD, Psychoeducational, Developmental Delay, and Dyslexia evaluations. These evaluations typically take about 2 hours to ensure a correct diagnosis, which is vital in defining a patient’s condition and treatment planning. Additionally, we have the ability to assess children as young as 2 years of age, helping parents set their children up for success as early as possible.
Medication is sometimes necessary for treatment— we at Life Bridge Kids take a conservative approach to medication management, maintaining standards that prioritize a patient’s overall health and wellbeing. Too often patients visit a medical professional and leave with only a prescription. Our clinicians not only help their patients receive the proper dosage, but will monitor their progress closely, adjusting treatment to fit their needs. Our objective is to create a safe space where you can ask any questions about your treatment.

Your genes play a key role in the effectiveness of your medication— a treatment that works well for one person may not for another. At Life Bridge, we keep these factors in mind, and offer genetic testing to identify what medication works best for you. With this method, you can avoid medicine that doesn't work, or has unwanted side effects. Now, a process that used to take months of trial-and-error is streamlined with one simple test.

Forensic psychiatry is a medical subspecialty where psychiatric knowledge is applied to legal issues. Oftentimes, a forensic psychiatrist is an expert witness in civil and criminal cases. This specialty encompasses both research and clinical practices, making their expertise essential in the realm of justice. Our forensic psychologist and psychiatrist address a wealth of concerns, including the validity of the insanity defense, gauging a defendant’s competency to stand trial, issues regarding child custody and visitation, and the complicated matters surrounding malpractice.
