abuse

Without intervention, many child victims of abuse will suffer ongoing or long term consequences that could impact them throughout their lives. Therapy is a unique opportunity for a child to meet with a trained professional who can help him or her process the trauma they experienced during abuse.

learning disorders

Suffering from a learning disorder can cause frustrations for both the child and their caregivers. Our psychologists work with patients on techniques to overcome these disorders and develop plans for success.

anxiety

Anxiety makes someone want to escape the situation — fast. Typical childhood fears change with age. If anxious feelings persist, they can take a toll on a child's sense of well-being and may require additional therapy.

depression

Depression is the most common mental health problem in the United States. When a depressive state, or mood, lingers for a long time — weeks, months, or even longer — and limits a person's ability to function normally, it can be diagnosed as depression.

ADHD

ADHD is a common behavioral disorder that affects about 10 percent of school-age children. Kids with ADHD act without thinking, are hyperactive, and have trouble focusing. They may understand what's expected of them but have trouble following through because they can't sit still, pay attention, or focus on details.
