At the Therapeutic Center for Children and Families we offer a broad spectrum of mental health treatments to help individuals, adults, and children, as well as families and couples. Our goal is to help people of all ages live more fulfilling lives by providing treatment for many symptoms and diagnoses.

While many mental health issues can be successfully addressed on an individual basis, we recognize that including family members in treatment can often be beneficial, especially when working with children. Our team of multi-disciplinary clinicians (physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, and social workers) work together closely, when appropriate, to integrate the individual, family, and group therapies that may be recommended to help people suffering from a loss of function in one or more of the following areas: family and social relationships, academic or employment performance, and/or health and sense of well-being.
