Center for Adolescent & Young Adult Health

We are a full-service, free-standing office specializing in the medical and mental health care of adolescents and young adults (ages 10-30).

Dr. Jeffrey Alberts, MD, an adolescent and young adult health care specialist, provides care in a comfortable environment separate from the pediatric clinic.

We provide comprehensive medical, social, and psychological screening and care with every annual physical examination or as indicated for health concern visits and consultations.

We provide sufficient time to meet alone with patients to foster their transition into adulthood where accepting more responsibility and advocating for their own health care needs is ideal for development of independence and maturity.

We provide confidential opportunities for teens and young adults to comfortably seek advice and address all health concerns freely.

Longer appointment times allow for thorough medical and mental health care recognizing that both are components of health and illness.

Dedicated advocacy for family, educational, legal and vocational agencies is provided as needed.

Your busy schedule is appreciated, teens may be seen without requiring the presence of a parent if prior permission is arranged.

* Dr. Alberts has been recommended to us as a transgender knowledgeable and welcoming provider.

Dr. Kathryn S. Castle, Ph.D., LMHC

If you’re considering or going through the process of transitioning, it’s likely that you have plenty to deal with. You may even be required to receive therapy in order to progress through the transitioning process. My therapeutic approach is aimed at lightening the load, rather than just being another base to cover. In my office, you won’t have to withhold information for fear that your words or thoughts will hinder your process.

For you and your family, transitioning brings a whole new realm of ideas and scenarios. Even with the most incredible support system, there’s plenty to learn through the self-exploration offered by therapy that can make the experience better. Transitioning isn’t a new idea for me, and my practice will provide a comfortable place where you can truly embrace your feelings, your new perspective, and any struggles that you face.

Forbes-Jones, Emma (PhD)

My practice includes a significant proportion of gender variant and transgender youth. When someone is contemplating a gender transition it is my approach to work with the whole family as everyone transitions during a gender transition! I have over ten years of experience helping children, teens, young adults and their families navigate a successful gender transition, if needed. I also conduct a play/parent group for gender variant kids (12 and under) and their families.
