Get to Know Me
Dr. Jason E. Boye is a pediatric psychologist, practicing in two areas — weight management and primary care. He is a member of the Physician informatics Team, and is a clinical assistant professor at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University.
Why I Treat Children
I have always wanted to work with children, teens and families, and was drawn to psychology as a way to promote positive and healthy moods, behaviors and lifestyles. I love looking at the world from a child’s perspective, and am passionate about helping them live the best life possible.
What I'm Passionate About
I am passionate about helping children, teens and families, and providing motivation to live a healthy lifestyle. I try to provide brief, focused treatment to get to the heart of the matter and get kids and teens successfully on their way. I love meeting new people and the families of the children I see.
Make A Difference
I treat each child, teen and family as unique and as individuals. I try to identify potential problems that a child might face at as young an age as possible to help diminish the long-term negative impact. I also pay attention to the positives and strengths of each child or teen and their family members to better understand them all. Whether I am working in the weight management setting or in the primary care office, I make sure that children, teens and families are connected with all of the team members and resources they might need. We all work as a team (with the family and among our own staff) to tackle the goals that are important to the family. I also participate in and am a member of professional psychology organizations, such as the American Psychological Association, Society of Pediatric Psychology and the Delaware Psychological Association.
