Behavioral Health Counseling
At Pediatric Associates Prof., LLC, we believe that physical and mental health are connected. Therefore, we are utilizing an integrated care model to help provide mental health alongside physical health and better address the needs of our patients through coordinated care. Behavioral Health with Pediatric Associates is often a great starting point for understanding your child’s mental health needs. The initial visit starts with a thorough evaluation using questionnaires and a meeting with one of our licensed Behavioral Health counselors. Typically, by the end of the initial visit, your Behavioral Health counselor will be able to create a plan with you and your child to either continue short-term counseling with that provider or work together to find more appropriate resources or a long-term counseling home.
Our counselors see patients of all ages and with a variety of presenting concerns, which may include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, PTSD, behavior concerns, sleep troubles, etc. Our goal is to make mental health services accessible to as many youths in our community as possible.
Although Pediatric Associates feels that treating the whole person in a wellness team setting is best practice, the good news is that you do not have to be an established patient at our practice to see our counselors. We work to make it as easy as possible to get your child the mental health care they need.
Call us today to schedule an initial evaluation.
