We are able to meet most behavioral health needs at our office. In the event that we are not able to meet a behavioral health need, we will provide referrals to other specialists. Local resources are available for individuals and/or family therapy, and referrals will be made as needed.
The initial appointment needs to be scheduled with your regular provider for a complete physical. If you have any paperwork from the school or teachers etc. please make a copy and send that to our office so that we can review it before you come for your appointment. It is also helpful to talk to other family members- grandparents, aunts and uncles- to see if any of your concerns have occurred in any other family members- for example hard time completing school or dropping out, difficulty getting along with others, or struggling in school from an early age, or needing to repeat grades.
Because insurance benefits vary in coverage, we strongly suggest that you contact your insurance carrier for specific behavioral health coverage. Please check on the back of your insurance card- often there is an 800 or mental health number that you may need to call to see what providers are covered and what services are covered.
