The Pediatric Behavioral Health Institute has been in business within the State of Florida since 2006. We have developed a team of outstanding clinicians that have several areas of specialization. Primarily, we diagnose, treat and consult with professionals when there are children who present with chronic or acute mental health issues that are causing a disturbance within the family.


What this means is that if there is a behavior or situation that is bothering or disrupting the families ability to function, we are able to help. 

We know from personal and professional experience how difficult it can be to manage a family with mental health or behavioral issues. Dr. Woller and her husband have two children with special needs. One of their children is living with bipolar disorder and onset at the age of 4. She is currently 17 and leading a very happy and productive life. The other is 20 years old and managing Autism Spectrum. He is living on his own and attending college. Both of our children are doing extremely well and are being prepared daily for independent living.


Dr. Woller and her staff are also forensic dependency specialists. They work with foster children and the professionals that support them all of the State of Florida and Iowa. Dr. Woller and her staff are called to consult on complex child abuse cases, provide therapeutic supervised visitation, provide reunification services, sibling assessments, infant mental health assessments, academic and neurocognitive assessments. They are also considered expert witnesses. 


Having a Ph.D. in Psychology, Dr. Woller has been trained to conduct complex mental health assessments. Because Dr. Woller is also a licensed clinical social worker, her assessments are grounded in the "person in environment theory" of social work. Unlike traditional psychological assessments, Dr. Woller's assessments pinpoint areas of difficulty, explain how this difficulty affects the person "in the real world" and then map out potential solutions to help within this area. 


Our real-life experience melded with our clinical experience is where our innovative treatment methods come into play. We will offer you real solutions to the problems that you are facing, helping you and your family to become the most fabulous that you are capable of being. 

Welcome to our practice and please enjoy the site.
