Seyler – Berkebile offers specifically trained therapists to work with children. This is a unique population and requires specialized training to be able to engage young children and adolescents. Our focus is unique as we utilize a systems approach to include the parents and family in treatment. We believe coordinating with doctors, schools, and any other important people in the child’s life is essential to effective treatment.
We understand parents desire for an alternative to medication. Medication can be very beneficial for some children but is not “one size fits all.” We believe medication should be offered as a last resort , not a first defense, and attempt to treat the child with a non-pharmaceutical approach.
We offer two child focused/family therapy rooms that provide comfortable and safe surroundings for our younger population. When children are comfortable they are more engaged and at ease in therapy which leads to more communication.
