Children

Working with Your Child

Our methodology involves working with the patient in an integrated and personalized way so that we can design a treatment plan that incorporates not just therapy and medication, but also a roadmap for healthy habits for overall well-being.  Research tells us that experiences in the formative years of childhood contribute to the foundation for a person’s mental health, because they shape the child’s developing brain. Childhood is a complex and vulnerable time, wherein many factors can influence emotional well-being and behavior, including genetics, neurodiversity, family situation, school, personal relationships, and trauma. In our practice, we look at family dynamics, history, genetics, habits, diet, medical diagnoses, brain differences, and overall health in helping determine the best treatment options for your child. We emphasize strengths, growth mindset, and self-compassion, as we seek to empower children. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care and support for your family, and to give you the skills and tools to confidently move through this stage of life.

Some diagnoses & behaviors we work with:

  • Autism

  • ADHD

  • Tic disorders

  • Phobias

We encourage you to request a consultation so we can collaborate with you in designing a treatment plan that offers an affirming, human perspective, and recognizes that psychological and medical treatments are just a couple ingredients in overall health. We will help you to integrate habits, behaviors, strength, knowledge, acceptance, compassion, and science to create a personalized path towards well-being.
