Pediatric Therapy Services

Mental Health is Part of Healthcare

Did you know that pediatricians receive an additional two years of medical training after becoming a physician? Kids’ bodies, minds and growth mean they don’t simply have smaller versions of adult bodies.

Because kids are also on a lightning-fast developmental trajectory, they need a physician who understands what to look for, when to intervene, and when to wait. It’s all part of helping kids grow up healthy, happy, and strong.

Classes & Group Therapy

Individualized therapy and counseling is just one of an array of tools for helping kids and teens. Group classes are valuable for helping kids, tweens, and teens learn from one another’s experiences and feel less alone in their challenges.

Parent Feedback

I was able to take my daughter here at 11:00 PM for a high fever. They were able to diagnose her and get her medication sent to our pharmacy. I love that they are available on the weekends and late night hours. The care provider and staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

More Than Counseling

Not only do we offer in-house counseling resources, we can help manage and monitor your child’s medications more closely than when counseling and medical care happen in isolation.

Our counselors work with in-house Pediatricians and Mental Health Nurse Practitioners to offer integrated care that produces healthier, happier kids and parents.
