Pediatric Behavioral Health

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

Our behavioral health providers work together with patients, families, and pediatricians using a systematic team approach to provide patient-centered care to address mental and emotional health, physical health behaviors (as they contribute to chronic medical illnesses), life stressors, school issues including both academic and behavioral, self harm crises, and stress related symptoms.

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 can begin.

We currently have 5 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
  • Rational 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.
