Dr. Aneita High
Dr. High is board certified psychiatrist in child and adult psychiatry. She completed her BS in psychology at Yale university then received her medical degree from Medical University of South Carolina. She completed her adult residency and child fellowship at UCSD.
Dr. High's passion for working with at risk youth and vulnerable populations has resulted in 20 years’ worth of experience in correctional psychiatry, adult and child residential care, day treatment, inpatient psychiatry and school-based and community-based clinics. She started going on mission trips as a teenager and has been on over 20 service trips with faith based and other non-profit organizations. This focus on global citizenship prompted her to complete a master’s in public health at George Washington University with a focus on global mental health.
In addition to practicing psychiatry, Dr. High spends part of her time in Kenya serving along side her husband in Teule Kenya, a registered NGO that serves orphaned and vulnerable children (https://www.teulekenya.org).
