Every year, CBH partners with families, healthcare professionals, schools and other agencies to promote the overall health and well-being of children and adolescents. Working closely with caregivers, we provide comprehensive treatment services for a variety of behavioral and emotional concerns such as:

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Poor attention or hyperactivity

  • Aggression, anger, and defiant behaviors

  • Body image and eating concerns

  • Stress and coping difficulties

  • Peer relationship and social problems

  • Difficulties with problem solving and decision making

  • School-related difficulties

  • Adjustment to changes in family make-up, bereavement, or health concerns

Family therapy is also provided to help foster relationships and address concerns such as blended/step-family issues, parent-child and family conflict, and communication difficulties. Sessions usually last for an hour and typically include all family members. Working closely with your family therapist, you and your family will learn to communicate more effectively to help foster more harmonious relationships. In this way, family members learn to work together to promote the wellbeing of the family as a whole and its individual members.
