About Us

We specialize in the treatment of childhood, adolescent and adult behavioral disorders, mood and depressive disorders, attention deficits, anxiety, anger, school refusal and developmental disorders. Our approach is custom tailored to each and every person. We employ gold standard treatment approaches when providing medication management and adhere to the best treatment practices, backed by strong clinical evidence for safe – effective treatment.

Our approach is distinctively collaborative and will include your primary care provider and/or therapist. We believe that medication can be helpful with certain problems but should not be the only step in treatment. Historical research shows the absolute best treatment outcomes when talk therapy and medication are combined. We help guide medication options and help you choose a seasoned, intuitive, specialized therapist for you or your child.
