Our Mission

Positive Development for Youth & Families is a private practice of licensed psychologist behavioral health providers. We serve children, adolescents (high school and college-aged), and parents to promote positive youth development by providing psychotherapy services. Our mission is to help them understand and use their character strengths when common pediatric mental health problems emerge using cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and strengths-based interventions with the ultimate goal of helping them thrive.
