Treatment Services

We offer a variety of psychiatric, psychological and behavioral therapies. All of our programs are individualized and generally fall into individual, family, parent education, and group treatment. The clinic emphasizes use of short-term, problem-focused, and evidence-based interventions. Treatment with youth involves the active participation of parents, other family members, caregivers, educators, and others, as appropriate. Emphasis is placed on measurable success in attaining clinical goals, as defined through a collaborative process between you and the clinicians.

Please note that an initial in-person appointment is required to gather background information, medical history, current services, educational services, and overall treatment needs. After our meeting, we will determine how services can best be provided to you.

Please read through this list to identify if there are appropriate services for you and your child. Please email [email protected] with the patient's full name, date of birth, and the services you are interested in

  • Psychiatry Services (All ages): Medication Management (in person or telehealth) *WAITLIST CLOSED, NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS*

    • Please note: Psychiatric services consist of consultative medication management services for short term care. Our psychiatric team is available to work with patients and their families until they are psychiatrically and behaviorally stabilized, with the goal of transferring care back to the Pediatrician or Primary Care Provider. This consultative model allows us to continue serving our community and helping patients in need.

  • Parent Education and Support Services (Ages 1-6):  

    • First Steps Telehealth Parent Group: This 10-week group provides information, support, and education for parents of children under seven who have recently been diagnosed with ASD. Parents participate in an expert-led discussion on the most critical topics for families of newly diagnosed children. They learn about autism characteristics, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), accessing services in the community, promoting resilience, and how to begin improving communication and reducing problem behaviors. 
  • Project ImPACT - A Parent-Mediated Early Intervention Service (Ages 2-6): This short-term service is delivered by both our psychologists and speech language pathologist. Services are delivered in person. Telehealth services are available for families from rural communities without access to autism specific services in their area.   *WAITLIST CLOSED, NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS*

    • This treatment is for toddlers and young children with the goal of improving communication, language, play, and engagement. We use a parent education/coaching model grounded in the naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention (NDBI) treatment paradigm called Project ImPACT. Specifically, the intervention utilizes components of Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) and Early Start Denver Model (ESDM).

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT):
    • CBT for children ages 4 to 12 years-old who need targeted care related to:
      1. behavioral flexibility (e.g., difficulty with changes, need to do things a certain way)
      2.  anxiety
    • CBT for ages 13-25 who need targeted care related to difficulties with depression, anxiety, emotion regulation, or specific phobias. 
  • Group Services: (services delivered in person) 

  1. Regulating Together (ages 8 – 18): This group occurs once a week for 10 weeks. RT is a neurobehavioral emotion regulation program, serving youth with developmental disorders who are also experiencing mental health or behavioral concerns. Skills training for children and adolescents includes relaxation, anger management, emotion identification, program solving, social skills and cognitive restructuring techniques. Skills training for parents include crisis management and safety planning techniques, behavior management, and coaching skills to implement the material taught to the children. Coaching will assist in generalizing the skills taught in the program to settings outside of the program and continued use of the material once the program ends.
