My Approach to Helping
As a pediatric psychologist, Dr. Garrison examines how biological, social and psychological factors influence health and illness. His primary area of focus is the treatment of children and adolescents with behavioral, emotional, and social difficulties. Additionally, because of his background in health psychology and behavioral medicine he brings expertise to the understanding and treatment of psychological and behavioral problems that arise from challenges with physical health issues. It is common for children and adolescents with challenging health conditions to experience anxiety, depression, behavioral problems and a variety of challenges arising from the interaction of their health condition and their unique situational and personality characteristics.
