Areas of Expertise

Here are the kinds of problems that

PBH practitioners have experience with.

If you do not see your situation here, please call and ask.

If we can't help, perhaps we can suggest someone who can. 

 

Psychotherapy

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): In 6 to 10 sessions, PBH clinicians can significantly reduce the symptoms of many common behavioral and psychological issues using CBT.  CBT is a scientifically proven approach that teaches patients how to take control of their symptoms so that they no longer interfere with everyday life.

  • Individual Therapy:  In addition to CBT, PBH clinicians also offer more traditional play therapy for children and individual insight-oriented therapy for adolescents.  These therapies are still solution focused, but are better for some problems that are less focused, such as adjustment to divorce, parental illness,  grief, sexuality issues, and life choices.

  • Family Therapy:  PBH clinicians can help your family discover your patterns of interaction that keep you from being the happy, cohesive unit you would like to be.

  • Group Therapy: Groups provide a supportive setting to address a variety of topics. Visit our group page to learn more! 

Psychiatry
  • Psychiatric Diagnosis:  If you have concerns that your child may be showing signs of depression, anxiety disorders, or other mental health  issues, or if you are not sure quite what is going on, PBH's Child and Adolescent psychiatrists can meet with you and your child, evaluate your child's symptoms and behaviors, and discuss with you the available treatment options, help you understand the likely course of the disease or behavior, and develop a treatment plan with you that is right for your family. 
     

  • Medication Evaluations and Management:  For some issues, a medication may be an important part of a child's treatment.  A Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist can help you understand how medications may help your child, what medications are available, and what the risks of using medications may be.  PBH accepts both second-opinion or one-time consultations and those patients needing ongoing treatment.

Testing

PBH can provide detailed neuropsychological and psychoeducational testing for children and adolescents.  We will tailor assessment packages to specific questions you need answered and provide you with detailed results and specific recommendations in a timely manner.

  • Neuropsychological Evaluations: Consultation with a Neuropsychologist to understand your concerns, customized testing (approximately 6 hours), then a feedback session providing results and recommendations. 
     

  • ADHD Evaluation:  Diagnostic sessions with a PBH clinician using a variety of standardized assessments of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Parent Support &
Educational Advocacy
  • Behavioral Management Training:  Behavioral management techniques are a variety of tools to address difficult child behaviors and to help parents have happier, more satisfying relationships with their children.  PBH's clinicians can teach you these tools and how to use them in a supportive, safe, and nonjudgmental environment.  You can come for weekly sessions for as long or as short as you need.

  • Educational Advocacy:  If you need assistance getting the services that your child requires, PBH's Educational Advocate has the experience and expertise to navigate school systems to help you get what you need.
