The Center for Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health

Behavioral health is an essential component of healthy functioning. When we experience stress to this area of our lives, we see impact on all domains including school functioning, physical health, family dynamics, and social relationships. Our children, adolescents and young adults are not immune to this stress making the behavioral health of our youth an ever-growing concern in our community.

Our Approach

At our Center for Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health we are committed to providing evidence-based, goal-oriented and strength-based services to children, adolescents and young adults.

  • Evidence-Based: The services we provide are based only in the most current and relevant research available.
  • Goal-Oriented: It is our mission to support the goals that are most important to meeting your individual behavioral health needs.

Services We Offer

Comprehensive Evaluations

Our clinicians utilize a tailored approach to determine the needs of each child, adolescent, and young adult we see. Initial evaluations are conducted with every individual. These evaluations typically include a clinical interview with the client and family, completion of behavioral assessments, and discussion of initial recommendations for services.

Psychological Testing

Individualized testing is available by a licensed psychologist for further diagnostic needs. Psychological testing is typically beneficial for those seeking additional understanding of their child or adolescent’s educational functioning such as those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and other learning difficulties.
