Many young children and adolescents experience mental, emotional or behavioral issues.

We work to help children and families understand these issues and develop individualized strategies to:

  • Improve relationships
  • Cope with stress
  • Change habits or other factors that influence well-being

We use an interdisciplinary approach and rely heavily on cognitive-behavioral therapy to help children and adolescents develop better ways to handle daily problems.
