“Is it normal for a child to do that?” “Is this something she will grow out of?”  “Does he have our family anxiety?” 

A diagnostic evaluation determines whether a child’s difficulties reflect the basic challenges of normal development or an emerging clinical problem. 

​Dr. Onufrak takes a gentle, conservative approach with young people, looking through a developmental lens first.
