CHILD + ADOLESCENT
We believe in delivering compassionate care and having the expertise to make a difference.
We are a specialized practice that offers treatment for children, adolescents, young adults and their families. We believe in delivering compassionate care and having the right team of clinicians focused on making a difference. Our practice includes a collaboration of both therapy and medication management. The benefit of coordinated care includes more timely medication appointments because your psychiatrist and therapist are working hand in hand. You can take comfort in knowing that the flow of information between therapist and psychiatrist allows for seamless integration. This integration is paramount in developing a successful treatment plan and ultimately a successful outcome. Additionally, we have thoughtfully created a soothing environment for your sessions to take place to foster a more relaxing therapeutic experience. We understand the challenges your family may be faced with and are confident we can help ease those difficulties.
What We Stand For
The answer is simple, it's the time and effort we spend with each child. We believe taking the time to truly understand each child from the very first visit to yield the best possible results. This approach helps us to develop the right treatment plan for your child. We may recommend therapy only, or a combination of therapy and medication management. It is important to mention that we do not take the prescription of medication lightly. We strive for the least invasive treatment possible.
We also offer therapy services for parents. Throughout the process, you will have the opportunity to identify and address your own feelings around the challenges and difficulties of parenting. You will also learn techniques to help your child overcome anxiety and view the world as a safer, less overwhelming place.
Whether the recommendation is therapy alone or therapy and medication management, we know we can make a positive impact in the lives of our patients and their families.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients/clients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
You can find the list of our private pay rates included under the "Patient Forms" Tab, located in our policies and procedures.
