Children and Youth Services

Families, pediatricians, and school professionals rely on MHC because our approach is effective. Since every child is different, we take the time to get to know you and your child before recommending any care options or strategies. We want to know your concerns and your child's understanding of what is happening. Only then do we customize a treatment plan to meet your family's specific needs.



A therapist provides child and family counseling using trauma-informed, evidence-based models, including CBT, TF-CBT, Play Therapy, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing.
