Child Mental Health Services
After an initial consultation to discuss the issues your child is dealing with, our providers will make a recommendation to either treat your child within our practice or refer him or her to a qualified specialist. As with all specialist referrals, our providers will stay in communication with the specialists to provide for quality coordination of care for your child.
Please call us if you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our providers to evaluate an emotional issue your child is facing.
