About Me

As a psychiatrist, I specialize in child and adolescent psychiatry. I spend the majority of my clinical time working with children who have been traumatized in some way at The Center for Family Safety and Healing, as well as with children in the THRIVE program. In addition, I've been selected to direct the child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children's Hospital. Prior to working at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University, I was the director of inpatient adolescent psychiatry at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City. While working there I learned to care for all types of children, particularly those that tend to be marginalized and underserved.

I believe that psychiatric care should be given to all people who desire or need it. I wholeheartedly believe that appropriate mental health care can save many lives. It is my job as a psychiatrist to provide education to my patients and the public about the importance of staying both physically and mentally healthy and I’m devoted to training the next generation of competent and caring physicians.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 11/21/2019, Dr. Kerlek has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
