As a parent or other caregiver, it’s difficult to see your child struggle and not be able to help. Too often the first solution we turn to is medication, but other options like talk therapy, nutrition, and exercise can be just as important in helping your child feel their best.
In many cases, the best approach to care is an integrative one, combining different types of treatment to address your child as a whole person. Their mental, emotional, and physical well-being are all connected, and taking this to heart often means faster, more effective results.
Here are some of the main ways we provide help for your child, adolescent, or teen:
Our psychiatry and therapy team is experienced with the full spectrum of challenges most teens face. Here are some of the many issues we help treat:
Every child is unique in some way, and we center this by creating personalized plans of care. We adjust our approach based on their age, cognitive level, their ability to vocalize their issues, and more. If trauma is involved, we look carefully at all details, including the age the trauma was experienced.
Our initial evaluation will help us determine an appropriate approach to start with, and every aspect of our plan will be transparent, so that we can make sure we’re meeting your child and your family’s needs, goals, and values, and adjusting as necessary.
Most importantly, we’ll create an atmosphere of trust and respect where your child and your family feel safe, free from judgment, and deserving of the best care possible.
“With the internet and social media today, you're not parenting alone. You're parenting with TikTok, you're parenting with Snapchat and a lot of other different forces have become more intrusive in your parenting. It’s confusing because the values at home and the values outside are different.”
— Monica McIntyre, Clinical Psychotherapist
Your teen or adolescent probably has more than one symptom, but it’s also possible there’s more than a single cause beneath the challenges they’re facing. For instance, a nutritional deficiency might result in depression, and difficult life events could cause a range of issues, from anxiety to episodes of anger and acting out.
Looking at your child in all their complexity helps us get to the root of their challenges. And some of our treatment options, like coping skills and communication tools, can help your child throughout their lives — not just today.
