Dorothy Stubbe, MD, is a psychiatrist who treats patients with autism, anxiety, acute stress disorder, depression, and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) at the Yale Child Study Center. 

“Each person I meet has a spark of uniqueness, hope, and potential,” Dr. Stubbe says. “I find joy in identifying that aspect and helping my patients see this spark in themselves as well.”

 During difficult conversations with patients and their families, Dr. Stubbe says she takes time to validate their feelings. “Empathic attunement includes active and compassionate listening, as well as providing the facts and evidence-base regarding the disorder and recommended treatments,” she says.

Dr. Stubbe chose to specialize child and adolescent psychiatry to improve patients’ social–emotional health so they can live happy, healthy, and productive lives.

“Helping individuals, even from an early age, gain skills to manage life's stresses and improve self-esteem is immensely gratifying,” she says.

In addition to her patient care, Dr. Stubbe is the medical director of the Yale Hub of ACCESS Mental Health CT, a free, state-funded consultation service to primary care physicians across the state who need help treating children with behavioral health issues.

Dr. Stubbe is the program director for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship program and the Yale Integrated psychiatry/child and adolescent psychiatry/research training track. Her research focuses on medical education, doctor–patient communication, ADHD, social media and youth, and working in school settings to improve the mental health of students.
