Therapists Who See Children & Teens: Masters and PhD level

Children, teens and families are seen for individual and family therapy by child and family therapists, usually with Master's Degrees.  Children and teens are seen by Ph.D. level psychologists for testing and evaluation.  Children and teens are seen by psychiatrists for medication evaluation.

Child and Family Therapists are mandatory abuse reporters but are not child abuse investigators.*

Court cases involving custody determination require the input of a PhD level clinician or a child custody evaluator/specialist.
