Please join us in welcoming Dr. Whitney Nall, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, to Bethany Children’s Health Center.
Prior to joining Bethany Children’s, Dr. Nall was working in private practice at Willow Youth Mental Health where she specialized in diagnosis and treatment of neurodevelopmental, mood, anxiety, trauma, and psychotic disorders in the pediatric population.
Dr. Nall’s clinical passions include treating trauma-related disorders, patient advocacy and decreasing mental health stigma.
Dr. Nall and her husband, Walter, reside in their loving home with their son, Benny, and puppy, Lucy.
Dr. Nall says, “I enjoy cooking, reading, playing piano, and being with family and friends. If I wasn’t in medicine, I would probably try to open a cafe.”
In light of September’s designation as Suicide Awareness Month, Dr. Nall says, “Since 2012, rates of depression, self-harm, suicide attempts and completed suicide have been on the rise among adolescents. With the support of Bethany Children’s and the amazing team here, I hope to continue working to improve the mental health of children and adolescents, while raising community awareness.”
Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Johnson, says, “We are thrilled to have Dr. Nall join our team! Her expertise and contributions will permit us to provide even more comprehensive behavioral health services, resulting in significant positive benefits for the patients and families we serve.”
We are excited to have Dr. Nall as part of the team at Bethany Children’s!
