How We’ll Work Together

Our team works alongside you to understand your needs, connect you to the right provider, address insurance issues, and navigate the care journey. Throughout that journey, you may receive support from licensed social workers, pediatric therapists, child psychologists, or child psychiatrists who are trained to address a wide range of behavioral health concerns. We encourage open communication and collaboration with your family, pediatrician, and school; if needed.

Together, we can keep children healthy, happy, and thriving.

Questions before you get started?

If you or a family member needs behavioral and mental care support, but have questions about where to get started, please call us at 516-738-5600 or email us. We are available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm to answer your questions.

How it works: a 3-step process

1. Schedule

Schedule a virtual introductory appointment with a team member. You’ll be asked for credit card information when you book, but won’t be charged until your visit.

2. Share

Fill out a behavioral health appointment form to help help us better get to know you and your child.

3. Meet & Treat

We’ll talk about you and your child’s needs, come up with a personalized treatment plan, and connect you with a provider who can best meet you/your family’s needs.
