Programs & Services


Early Childhood and Perinatal Mental Health

Provides therapeutic services to children aged 1 to 5 and their families as well as prenatal and postpartum parents experiencing depression and anxiety.

Provides spectrum of clinical services to support parent-child relationships.

Collaborative Mental Health Care provides screening and consultation to professionals who provide services to infants and children 0-5 yrs. The consultation may be limited to a session between the CMHC consultant and the service provider, but it most often involves a joint session with the service provider and the child and parents. The service doesn’t provide direct therapy or case management.

Perinatal Mental Health (24 weeks gestation to 9 months post-partum) offers short term intensive therapy in the home and at our offices for pre and postpartum anxiety and depression. Topics we may work with include but are not limited to; unhelpful thoughts, intrusive thoughts, social support, self-care, self-compassion, and evolving relationships.

Early Childhood Mental Health (children - birth to kindergarten entry) provides consultation and therapeutic interventions for infants, young children and their families. We offer consultation on the child’s overall development and relationships, short term intensive therapy in the home, education and group therapy for parents. The purpose of the program is to improve caregiver-child relationships and increase the social/emotional functioning of the individual child.
