Pediatric Mental Health

Recognizing the symptoms and seeking early and effective help can be difficult for children. We treat patients 6 years and older in an outpatient, medical setting. We specialize in treating complex mood disorders, anxiety, depression, and ADHD. We believe mental health treatment should be fully integrated with physical health treatment. Our team works closely with your current doctor to fully support a child’s emotional, behavioral and developmental needs. We provide for the well-being of the child and whole family.

Currently our Wait List for Pediatric Mental Health Therapy is closed and we unfortunately are not taking external referrals.
