Overview of What I do as a Psychiatrist In Wisconsin
I am a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist who treats psychiatric disorders with a family-centered, evidence-based treatment approach. I evaluate, diagnose and treat children of all ages, adolescents and adults. I provide individual therapy, family therapy, psychoeducation and medication management. I collaborate with other care providers to obtain information to make the best possible diagnosis, and to develop individualized treatment. I also utilize standardized checklists and instruments for diagnosis and treatment. I work hard to advocate in the best interests of my patients and for others who need mental health services. My efforts include grassroots lobbying, development of legislation and leadership roles with the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP).
An Introduction to Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Consulting, LLC (CAPC)
Families who come to Child And Adolescent Psychiatry Consulting are often pleasantly surprised by its location. We have renovated a tan pole barn and within it, Dr. Jenna sees patients in a cozy room, with heated floors, French doors overlooking a pond, and a soothing, earth-friendly paint on the walls. While driving to the address, and parking in front of the building, you may see our Boer goats, our donkey, and several of our horses. When you park your vehicle, you may see our barn cats, and you may even be greeted by our barn dog. We have a fully functioning farm, so if you can avoid wearing your best clothing here, you will be more comfortable.
Most children enjoy coming to the farm more than seeing doctors in a clinic, and it gives Dr. Jenna an opportunity to see children in a less anxious state—though sometimes the kids are more excited! This provides Dr. Jenna with a more natural, less clinical setting to assess child development .
Some parents have asked “why do you see patients in this setting?” During the last several years in clinical practice, I have been frustrated by the limitations of the most common treatment interventions that we have to offer. (more)
