Why did you choose mental health care as a career path?
“As the daughter of a urologist and a psychiatric social worker, I think I was destined to become a psychiatrist. While I grew up intending to become a pediatrician, I decided to have a career as a child & adolescent psychiatrist because I enjoy talking to and listening to patients and helping them find solutions that enable them to live better lives.”
“Dr. Wilkins is the absolute best psychologist I have ever had the privilege of seeing. She is an excellent listener and diagnostician. She is has helped me manage my depression and anxiety so well. She is always available when I need her and is a true professional. I highly recommend her. She has one of the most compassionate, understanding souls.” ~ N.P.
“She makes me laugh and always is on my side about stuff. My dad likes her as well. I just want you and your staff members to say thank you to her” ~ Emily
