We provide comprehensive outpatient behavioral health and psychological services for children up to the age of 18 and their families. Our compassionate team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and professional counselors take a resilience-based approach to treating children and teens from many backgrounds and with a wide variety of conditions. Children may be referred to our services by a parent, pediatrician, school, other community behavioral health providers, or the CT Department of Children and Families.
We also maintain strong working relationships with area agencies, programs, schools, and mental health professionals to offer the most up-to-date treatments and wellness initiatives to the children in our communities.
