Starting with our lead therapist, Carrie brings over 30 years of clinical experience to working with young children and families.  As a group, our amazingly dedicated professionals, have easily over 100 years of work, passion and joy sharing time with little ones we serve, helping to improve lives, outcomes and functioning of the individual child and the family that surrounds them. 


We work through developing a therapeutic relationship and guide families to better social emotional and behavioral health.  Because children and families are truly unique we conduct comprehensive assessment of a child's psycho social health, developmental functioning and family dynamics and create an individualized treatment plan to improve functioning and to bring joy back to parenting.  

We rely on a balance of psycho therapeutic strategies that are best suited for the particular needs of the child and his family.  However our strategies and modalities of intervention are based in evidenced based practices.  We encourage, teach and counsel parents in developing a healthy balance of nurturance and proactive discipline.
