Whether you need a full evaluation, ongoing treatment, or help with balancing medications and therapies, we can help.
Evaluation and diagnosis
Your child will receive a full evaluation that includes expert analysis from a neurologist, psychologist, and nurse practitioner. This collaborative approach ensures that your child will receive the best possible treatment for his or her unique needs.
Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT)
CBIT is a psychotherapeutic treatment that helps your child understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. CBIT is an effective form of therapy for treating a wide range of disorders, including phobias, addiction, depression, and anxiety.
