Child Therapist Orange County CA
Youth therapy is now more critical with the rise in delinquent behavior in the U.S. We recognized this trend, so we decided to play a key role in youth therapy in Southern California. Enter the OC Teen Center
The OC Teen Center is a leader in providing pediatric mental health services in Orange County. We are experts at treating young adolescents (aged 12-19) who are battling depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem and body image disorders, and a range of other mental health and developmental disorders.
Meet our team of child therapists:
Dr. Sayeh Beheshti
Doctor Beheshti is a medical doctor and psychiatrist who has worked at the UCI Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Center. As one of the leading adolescent psychiatrists in SoCal, her philosophy is to treat each patient as an individual with unique needs and circumstances. This is because she firmly believes that the best way to treat adolescents is through establishing a solid therapeutic relationship with them and their parents. Once the doctor can understand their needs within the context of their biological, psychological, environmental, social, and spiritual makeup, it becomes easy to arrive at a treatment that works for them.
Dr. Beheshti is the owner and director of OC Teen Center.
