About the Practice
Welcome to our practice website! I am a child and adolescent psychiatrist located in Memphis. At CAPA, we strive to provide care that is both comfortable and of the highest quality. We adhere to a basic systemic viewpoint: Whenever a child has a problem it affects and is affected by the rest of the family.
Treatment may be focused on the child, the parents or the entire family with mutual benefits for the child and their basic support system, the family. Call us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
