Behavioral Problems


Hyperactivity, aggressiveness or inattentiveness may be signs of childhood behavioral problems.

Behavioral problems also may result in a child who can't sit still, who hurts others or who has repeated wetting or soiling accidents.

Some children have problems at home, school, with friends, family or even with the police.

We work to determine if a child's behavior is out of the range of normal.

Our child psychologists, clinical social workers can determine if a diagnosis should be made. If so, we offer ideas to help the child and family deal with the behavior.

Counseling directed at the child and family helps most of the time. We offer many evidence-based treatments including:
  • Play therapy
  • Parent-child therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Family therapy
  • Individual therapy

We also consult with schools and agencies. Sometimes medications are used to treat behavioral conditions.

We also offer Specialized Services to children and families experiencing behavior problems.
