Our board-certified psychiatrists and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) specialize in working with children, adolescents, and young adults. An initial psychiatric evaluation and ongoing assessments and appointments help build an individualized and thorough treatment strategy. We offer group therapy and other psychiatry services to provide comprehensive and up-to-date treatment plans to children, teens, adults and their families.

Mental Health Services for Teens

We continue our care of Northeast Ohio teens through our mental health services for teens with individual mental health counseling and therapy and our FIRST program for individuals who have just experienced the first episode of psychosis.

Mental Health Counseling

Child Guidance & Family Solutions mental health counseling services help children, teens, and their families facing emotional, behavioral and social difficulties in-person or with telehealth sessions to provide individual therapy, individual counseling, or crisis intervention services.
