The Hemophilia Program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital provides a wide range of services to patients. A member of the multidisciplinary team is a licensed psychologist, who provides outpatient psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, and their families.
The hemophilia team believes in treating the whole person - which includes treating their mental health needs.
Patients and their families who attend their annual comprehensive clinic at Phoenix Children's will meet with the psychologist as part of the multidisciplinary team.
