Dr. Kurse specializes in child and adolescent psychiatry. However she is a board certified adult psychiatrist as well.  Dr. Kurse is specially trained to work with children as young as 3-5 years of age. There are various modalities of treatment that Dr. Kurse is trained in as a psychiatrist.

Individual therapies include psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy for ages 4-adult. For children ages 3-10 there is strong evidence for play therapy which can help restore the child to their developmental stage that they should be in. Also there is strong scientific support for the use of therapy alone or in conjunction with medication management 

for effective treatment of any psychiatric condition.

If you are already in therapy Dr. Kurse will work closely with your therapist to coordinate care. Also she will work closely with family and school as needed to facilitate care. If a patient needs family therapy, Dr. Kurse will refer you to a therapist outside of her practice and will work with them closely or can work with the family as well depending on the needs of the client.
