Philosophy of Care
I work with children, teenagers and their families and caregivers to try to understand and help with a variety of problems including attention problems, mood and anxiety problems, and behavioral problems.
I believe there are many different tools for helping with these problems, including therapy and medications. My goal is to help patients and their families find the tools they need to understand and cope with the problems that are bothering them.
Dr. Youngdale is a child and adolescent psychiatrist who offers care for problems such as ADHD, mood problems and anxiety problems. He works in the CAPS clinic, a Sacramento County operated clinic that provides care for patients who do not have private insurance.
