The key to working with adolescents and young adults is trust. My approach is to establish a therapeutic relationship based on trust, and to provide compassionate and confidential care to adolescents and young adults in an age-appropriate setting.
Adolescence is a difficult time for many young people. It is not uncommon for the adolescent medicine provider to be the only person to whom an adolescent is willing to speak, despite the presence of a caring family. The ability for me to make a difference in someone's life at such a formative age is very powerful. More than a handful of my former patients have been inspired to pursue a career in pediatrics. I can't think of a better legacy than that.
