In this enlightening and very important episode, I sit down with Dr. Celine Hamilton, a highly regarded child and adolescent psychiatrist, and the medical director of the CATS Behavior Unit Health Unit at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. Dr. Hamilton's extensive training in the Triple Board Residency Program at Mount Sinai Medical Center has uniquely equipped her with a deep understanding of pediatrics, adult psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry. 

Dr. Hamilton's primary mission is to unravel the intricacies of normal child development and the various medical conditions that can impact children. Her focus is pinpointed on identifying, diagnosing, and treating mental health concerns that deviate from the expected developmental trajectory.

As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr. Hamilton places great importance on truly listening to her young patients and their families. She strongly believes in fostering strong working relationships that lead to tangible changes for parents and their families, all of which bring immense satisfaction to her work.
