For every teen and family we treat, we provide an initial assessment with a licensed therapist, as well as psychiatric services with our program psychiatrist for mental health evaluations and medications if necessary.


According to the National Institute on Mental Health, Depression affects  13% of 12 to 17-year-olds teens.

Adolescence brings new schools and schedules, new fears, loss of friendships, new pressures, more responsibility, and changing bodies and emotions. First presentations of mental health issues often occur during times of transition.

32% of 12 to 17-year-olds suffer from Anxiety (NIMH).

Amongst mental health symptoms and periods of change, teens and their parents may experience breakdowns in communication and functioning, leading families to feel frustrated and lost.


9% of 12 to 17-year-olds experience ADHD (NIMH).

ADHD affects attention,  organization, impulsivity, hyperactivity, emotions,  executive functions and motivation. What looks like oppositional behavior or teens purposefully being “bad” may actually be undiagnosed ADHD.

Teenagers tend to fluctuate between independence and insecurity after a distressing or traumatic event. Moreover, teens who are deeply upset by a traumatic event may not share their feelings with their parents. We provide teens experiencing trauma with support and coping skills to help them restore their previous healthy level of functioning.
