The symptoms of childhood mental disorders can appear differently than those in adults.
Undiagnosed mental disorders in children can affect the success of their academic performance and interpersonal relationships.
A child's living environment plays a significant role in their overall mental wellness.
The mental health of primary care givers, and their ability to appropriately manage their own stress, has a direct effect on children.
Children are resilient. As the affected primary care giver improves with proper treatment, children are likewise positively impacted.
Because childhood is a vulnerable period of development that often shapes who and how we will likely become as adults, children who measure their self-worth based on their identity in Christ Jesus are more likely to enjoy a stable adolescence and adulthood.
Dr. Fortuchang carefully assesses whether a child's mental, emotional and/or behavioral problems stem from biological, environmental (situational) and/or spiritual causes when she conducts pediatric psychiatric evaluations.
Dr. Fortuchang's unique treatment approach is a highly effective balance between proven evidence-based psychotherapeutic techniques and medication management (when appropriate),
enriched with a Christian framework and a Biblical perspective.
She believes in the importance of focusing on the mental wellness of her pediatric patients in entirety (mind, body, soul and spirit), in order to fully identify and address problems from the root.
