Pediatric Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health Providers

We are an integrated medical and behavioral health clinic. Just as we monitor the physical development of our patients, we also realize the importance of monitoring their social, emotional, behavioral, and mental health.

Our behavioral health providers work together with patients, families, and pediatricians using a systematic team approach to provide patient-centered care to address the impact mental, emotional, and academic stressors that can result in increased stress (and sometimes self-harm crises) and contribute to negative physical health outcomes.

We not only offer behavioral health related screening and checks during pediatric medical visits, we also provide longer term, scheduled appointments to help address identified concerns. We strongly believe that the sooner a concern is recognized, evaluated, and diagnosed, the sooner treatment and growth can begin.

We currently have 8 Behavioral Health Providers who see patients from birth – 25 years. To better serve a wide variety of patient needs, we provide both evaluations and therapy.

We offer…

Evaluations in the areas of:

  • Cognitive & Intellectual Testing
  • Academic Achievement
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Autism Screening (not ADOS)

Therapy to help support:

  • Emotional and Behavioral Issues
  • Anxiety, Depression, Anger
  • ADHD
  • Poor Social & Interpersonal Skills
  • Relational and Attachment Concerns
  • Academic Related Concerns
  • Parent Training
  • And more

We use a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy among others to meet patient and family needs.

We work with most insurance companies and offer a self-pay option as well.

Ryan W. Briscoe, LPC

Ryan moved to Portland, OR to earn his Master of Arts in Counseling from Western Seminary. Here, he met his wife (also a therapist specializing in children and teens) and they are now raising their own children in this city whose community they feel called to serve. As a parent himself, he knows first-hand how joyful, but also how difficult, these years can be — especially when facing mental health challenges.

Ryan believes that people continue to develop throughout their lives, but the early years are crucial in setting a solid foundation for all that follows. His approach is to work collaboratively with his patients to clarify goals, identify strengths and build resilience through their particular struggles.

When he’s not counseling, Ryan enjoys reading, drawing, and exploring the Oregon coast with his family. “There is no more meaningful work — for parents and helpers — than to invest in the lives of children.
