East Tennessee Children's Hospital Pediatric Psychology

Pediatric Psychology addresses health and illness issues in children, adolescents and families. Psychology and mental health involves treating your child’s physical, social, emotional and developmental needs. That’s why our experts treat the whole patient with family-centered care.


Roles of Pediatric Psychologists

Children’s Hospital’s pediatric psychologists play different roles for our patients. Depending on your child’s needs, our specialists can support your family as an inpatient, outpatient, or during a visit to one of our clinics.


Our pediatric psychologists work with children during their stay at Children’s Hospital on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes a patient’s care may need psychological support (for example, eating disorders and non-epileptic seizures). In these cases, our experts work with families and patients to make sure your child recovers quickly and fully.


Pediatric Psychology & Mental HealthChildren’s Hospital has several referral-based clinics and programs. Our clinics combine physicians and specialists from different areas to treat a child’s whole health. Pediatric psychology is often included in these clinics, if your child’s primary care provider recommends it. Follow-up with a pediatric psychologist can happen in clinic, at our psychologists’ practice in our Medical Office Building (MOB), or at a community agency.


Patients can be referred to this office from specialists, primary care practices, other therapists or directly from family. They are treated in our psychology office in the Medical Office Building (MOB) on Children’s Hospital’s main campus, or at the Rehab Center off of Westland Drive. Common reasons for referrals include:

  • History with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)
  • Anxiety
  • School avoidance
  • Depression
  • Asperger’s syndrome
  • Tourette’s syndrome
  • Picky eating
