Who We Are

The Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health Center provides psychotherapy, psychological assessment, school observation, and parent coaching services to families with children, teens, and young adults aged 0–26.

We're proud to say we’re not like most psychologists or therapists:

  • We don’t offer to fix your problems. We teach you the skills you need to find success.

  • We don’t do a lot of individual therapy with children, especially younger children. We work with families, because we know your children need you more than they will ever need us.

  • We don’t do a lot of long-term therapy. Most of our clients are done in ten sessions or fewer.

  • We don’t work from a “mental illness” model. We do provide diagnoses, but “mental illness” isn't a useful way to think about problems in living. Your child is not sick or broken.

Take a look around our website and learn more about us and about what we do. Find our handy resources. Take a look at the services we offer and decide which is best for you and your family.

And—when you’re ready—give us a call. We’re here to help. 

Our Mission

To help families become the environments for everyone’s success by providing compassionate, connected science-based behavioral health solutions.
