For Children & Adolescents
Services begin with a face-to-face evaluation. Your child and one or both parents need to be present during this initial visit. During this time, Dr. Bellota will review the difficulties you are experiencing and will begin to develop a comprehensive treatment plan with you. The plan may include recommendations for psychological or educational testing, referrals to another therapist or physician better suited to your needs, or who provide different modes of treatment, and other individual, group and/or community resources.
Any recommended therapy sessions will last approximately 50 minutes. Medication follow-up visits will last approximately 20-25 minutes and when necessary, up to 50 minutes.
Treatment will be based on your preferences and clinical needs. Recommended treatment will be consistent with evidence based practice guidelines demonstrated to be most effective in overcoming the difficulties you are experiencing.
