Child Behavioral Therapists are Here to Get Your Child Back On Track

It can be a difficult decision to decide if and when your child is in need of behavioral therapy.


A lot of a child’s behavior can seem unpredictable, and you may be chalking up uncontrollable actions to a phase that they will grow out of.


Some behaviors, however, are more than just a phase, and they can actually worsen over the years if left unaddressed.


The Family Center provides professionals to assist with child behavior -- aggression, non-compliance, a frightening temper, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders (ADHD).


Whether you have witnessed it at home or teachers are telling you about their actions, it is important to consult with a professional about you and your child’s options.

When working with the child mental health services in Ellicott City, MD & nearby areas, part of what we do is a partner with your child's community.

With your blessing, we involve teachers, coaches, tutors, and more, so your child's progress doesn't stop at our doors.


Behavioral therapy is not forever, and it begins a process between you and your child for forming better behavior for a better, successful life together.

If Your Teen is Suffering from Depression or Anxiety, Our Child Therapist Can Help

How do you tell when your teen or child is suffering from depression or anxiety, vs general mood swings and adolescent stress?

The child therapists we have are dedicated to focusing on your child's specific behavior, and tailoring therapy sessions and solutions that are made solely for them.


We are also here for trauma counseling as part of our child mental health services if your child or teen has faced traumatic events and needs emotional assistance.


LGBTQ teens also have resources at The Family Center, to cope with feeling different, bullying, identification issues, and more - it's part of our promise with our child mental health services here in Ellicott City, MD.

If you are interested in family and marriage counseling, we can help your family handle separations, divorces, and sibling rivalry, as well.
