  • My child has already been evaluated. Do I need another evaluation?

    Yes. We will review the evaluation that your child has already received as part of our diagnostic evaluation but cannot rely on that report to determine treatment recommendations. Our clinicians need to meet with you and your child directly and make their own assessment. An accurate and thorough diagnostic evaluation is the key to recommending the most effective treatment.
  • How long will my child need treatment?

    Our clinicians are trained in evidence-based treatments, which are specialized forms of therapy that have been proven effective for children, usually over 12-16 sessions. We monitor symptoms to ensure treatment is working. Our goal is to get kids out of treatment and back to their lives.
