Growing up nowadays is not easy. Today's children face many challenges including:
• Changing family dynamics, like divorce or relocation
• Peer and academic pressures
• Effects on emotion due to hormonal changes
At Chesapeake Mental Health Collaborative (CMHC) we will help your children, along with you, navigate life at home, school, and with their social circles.
Our board-certified therapists have treated many children from a wide variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, income levels and sexual identities. We also welcome children with a variety of behavioral, cognitive and emotional issues across all developmental stages – from early childhood through emerging adulthood.
Clinically sound, research-based, family focused; we collaborate with parents every step of the way. Our therapy process begins with developing a customized treatment plan and goals. When necessary, we engage other programs within the CMHC umbrella, such as Medication Management or Art Therapy to provide the most complete, comprehensive care.
