Get to Know Me

Zohal Heidari, PhD is a pediatric psychologist who specializes in treating anxiety and mood disorders, eating and feeding disorders, and interventions for young children with behavioral concerns. She enjoys working with youth 2 to 18 years old and their families. Dr. Heidari aims to help families achieve their individual goals and recognize their strengths. 

Why I Treat Children

I love working with children and teens because they are so eager to learn and grow. Supporting them in meeting their goals is a privilege! Working with children allows me to implement prevention and early intervention strategies with youth and get to support their parents as well.

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about providing prevention and early intervention services. I enjoy helping youth and families understand the mind body connection by building a healthy relationship with food and understanding how their physical and mental health are connected.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to listen to my families, advocate for them and recognize how their individual differences are their strengths.
