The Childplace Outpatient Counseling Program currently employs seven master level therapists and one full time psychiatrist. We offer therapy services and medication management services to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Our clinicians have multiple years of experience working with a number of symptoms, including those related to ADHD, Anxiety, and Depression. We also have experience working with changes in mood, defiance, divorce, drug and alcohol, traumatic experiences and trouble in school.
We believe, in order to provide the best treatment and to help make positive changes, our clients should participate in a combination of therapy services and medication management services. Our clients will first participate in a Clinical Initial Assessment with their therapist. Once the initial assessment is completed, the client will be able to schedule a Medication Initial Assessment. Our philosophy of treatment is focused around our clients participating in therapy services in order to participate in medication management services.

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of training is required of my therapist?
Childplace employs Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. Each of our professionals holds a Masters’ Degree and have passed licensing exams. Our professionals have a wide variety of expertise in areas of assessment, diagnosis of problems and human behavior.
What are the different types of therapy?
Childplace offers a wide variety of therapy. We work with individuals, couples and families. A person might participate in a combination of all three depending on their circumstance. We tailor the therapy being provided to fit the needs of the client.
What is the cost of therapy?
Childplace accepts a wide variety of insurances. If you have private insurance, we will ask that you pay your co-pay at the time of your scheduled session.
What should I expect at my first session?
Prior to your first appointment, we will ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to complete paperwork. The paperwork can be reviewed in your session should you have any questions. The paperwork provides basic background information and various consents.
At your scheduled appointment time, your therapist will come to the waiting room and bring you to their office. The therapist will spend a few minutes introducing themselves and answering any questions. You will then be asked to explain your reason for seeking services. The therapist will complete an initial clinical assessment that contains multiple questions that help the therapist understand more of your situation. You will be asked about your history, current circumstances, and any goals you have for yourself.
How long will I need to attend therapy?
Typically, a person will start off attending therapy weekly. The goal is to decrease the number of sessions as you make lasting improvements. If you are also receiving medication management sessions, you will need to attend therapy at least monthly after completing the first few months of treatment.
How long do the therapy sessions last?
Typically, a session will last around 50 minutes. There may be times where a shorter or longer session could be beneficial. Your therapist will discuss shortening or extending sessions as needed.
Can I just participate in medication management services?
Childplace believes a combination of medication management and therapeutic services provide the greatest chance of success. With this philosophy in mind, you will not be able to just participate in medication management services.
Can I receive services even though I am not a child?
Yes, we work with children, adolescents, and adults.
