At this time, the demand for child therapists is exceptionally high, and many of our child therapists have a waiting list for individual therapy during after-school hours. If your child has the flexibility to attend therapy during regular school hours, we may be able to get you an appointment sooner. If we are not able to get your child scheduled with a therapist right away, we encourage you to add your name to the waitlist, as we do contact potential patients as soon as therapists have availability.
Our child psychiatrists are currently available to conduct diagnostic evaluations, make treatment recommendations, and determine if medication may be an option. We also offer psychoeducational and neuropsychological testing for the assessment of cognitive and intellectual abilities, including ADHD, autism, and developmental disorders. We strongly recommend that you discuss your concerns with your child’s pediatrician, who can be helpful in directing you toward the best form of treatment or assessment for your child.
When you contact us about scheduling and/or getting on our wait list, we can also provide you with referrals to other child therapists in the area, but unfortunately the pandemic has heightened the demand for care across the board and many of our colleagues have waiting lists as well. We encourage you to get on wait lists for multiple practices in order to get seen as soon as possible. If you or your child is in crisis, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
In the meantime, we encourage you to sign up for our newsletter to be notified of upcoming parenting programs, and to view the resources below from our website which are geared to parents.
