About

Bio

Elizabeth A. Finley-Belgrad is an Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, and specializes in a comprehensive holistic approach to evaluation and treatment of children. She is board certified in child and adolescent as well as adult Psychiatry. Dr. Finley-Belgrad completed postgraduate training at Brown University, with an adult residency in psychiatry and Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry with a special emphasis on infancy. Prior to that she obtained her medical degree from Northwestern University in 1987, after completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania with a major in the Biological Basis of Behavior obtaining additionally a Masters Degree in Human Learning and Development at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education in 1983. In 1995 she relocated to Boardman Ohio and has been working in NE Ohio and Western Pennsylvania since that time. She has provided clinical services in a number of treatment and consultation settings with the goal of providing up to date information and integrating emerging knowledge into the optimal treatment for children. She has a special interest in developing ways to provide understanding and intervention for young children who without such are likely to present further on in development with symptoms much more difficult to address. Every family has a unique way of addressing their families needs and the needs of each child. One road map will not work for every child. The range of our biochemical individuality is wide and each child needs to be considered as an individual with potentially unique biochemical, emotional and relational needs. Diet and nutrition are essential cornerstones of each person's health. Some people's systems are considerably more sensitive than others and attention to these unique sensitivities is essential. My goal for parents is to help them understand what is reasonable for them to expect from their child, and how to best facilitate success for them. This entails getting an accurate picture of their ability to process information, often involving further evaluation and specific intervention to address relevant needs. It also entails addressing any biochemical abnormalities. This often includes laboratory evaluations as indicated and potentially dietary changes and or nutritional supplementation and further treatments as necessary.

Specialties
