An important component of treating children with complex genitourinary conditions is recognizing and treating any associated anxiety and psychological distress.

Connecticut Children’s Division of Urology integrates psychological counseling with Barbara Rzepski, PhD, who has expertise in addressing the issues unique to our patient population. They are supported by Lisa Namerow, MD, a psychiatrist with extensive experience working with children and young adults affected by genitourinary disease.

Using a variety of approaches, our uro-psychology team counsels children and families regarding issues such as disorders of sexual development, preparing for surgery, and the importance of health maintenance for young adults.
