CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.
Sibling Relationship Problem
This may be the focus of clinical attention or a problem that affects the course or treatment of the individual and family. There is a pattern of interaction between siblings that affects family function, is the cause for significant impairment or contributes to symptoms occurring in one or more siblings. Behaviors or symptoms include: recurring arguments and conflicts resulting distraction or preoccupation from daily life, avoiding contact with the individual who is causing the stress, threats of a sibling running away, a pattern of anger towards a sibling which doesn’t resolve because of a lack of conflict resolution strategies and parenting strategies or excessive jealousy between siblings. Sibling relational problems may occur between full, half, step, foster or adopted siblings.

What We Don’t Treat
We are not an emergency clinic. We are an outpatient provider so we do not have inpatient facilities. We are not a hospital and do not provide detox services for addictions. We do not treat schizophrenia or brain disorders related to advancing age such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. We are not contracted with any court system and do not provide court ordered services related to child custody or other matters.
ADHD affects 11% of school-age children (4-17) and symptoms continue into adulthood in more than 75% of children. Boys are over twice as likely to be diagnosed with ADHD (13.3%) compared to girls (5.6%)
