Dr. Ellika McGuire MD

Services Provided

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychotherapy, and Psychoanalysis

All evaluations begin with an in-depth visit with parents, followed by evaluation session(s) with the child/adolescent. I work closely with parents throughout the treatment of children and adolescents of all ages, with dual goals of helping the child/adolescent understand and overcome barriers to living a fulfilling life, while restoring the parent-child relationship to a healthy, trusting base for both. For some patients and families, more intensive/frequent psychotherapy or psychoanalysis may be recommended.

I prescribe medications when indicated, in the context of thorough discussion with parents and children/adolescents.

I am contracted with Aetna, Premera, Regence, and BCBS. I am an Out of Network Provider for all other plans and I accept Private Pay.

LGBTQIA+ Mental Health

I have several years of experience working with LGBTQ+ youth and adults from a wide variety of backgrounds. Together we will work to understand each individual's journey and mental health challenges. When working with children and adolescents, parent work is central part of every treatment.

Parent Work

I work closely with parents throughout the treatment of children and adolescents of all ages, with dual goals of helping the child/adolescent understand and overcome barriers to living a fulfilling life, and restoring the parent-child relationship to a healthy, trusting base for both.

I also work with parents independently. This model can be an effective way to explore conflicts, and generate change in the parent-relationship.
