Profile Picture of Kelsey Stevens, MD

Kelsey Stevens, MD

“I am both an adult and child trained psychiatrist, with specialized training in children and adolescents due to my passion for this age group. Our generation of youth has been faced with unimaginable stressors over the last decade and as a result has had some struggles in dealing with some of these challenges. My approach is to utilize my strong foundation in child development and then take the time to understand the unique nature of your child, appreciating their strengths and identifying the areas that have lead to their distress, in order to help them overcome this challenging time. By utilizing a team approach, engaging both the child and the family, and implementing therapeutic and/or pharmacological intervention, I strive to help your child in becoming the best version of themselves.


I have a diverse training background that has provided me with a specialized skill set. I was born and raised in San Diego County and began my training at California State University Long Beach where I obtained degrees in both psychology and chemistry. Appreciating the intricacies of the brain, I expanded my knowledge of medicine and pharmacological treatment by attending AUC School of Medicine, which facilitated unique opportunities for exposure to different cultures and medical systems. I then completed my adult psychiatry residency at VCU Health Systems in Richmond, Virginia and returned back to San Diego where I completed my fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego. This background has provided me the tools to be able help your child with whatever challenges they may be struggling with in order to set them up for success as they journey through life.”
