At Meghan Barlow and Associates, we pride ourselves in having the flexibility and creativity to meet our patients’ needs. We know that parents often have trouble finding a group that works for their child. If this is the case with you and your child, please contact us – give us a call or e-mail and share a little about your child and what you’re looking for. We’ve been known to pair up a couple of kids looking for the same service or to create a group based on requests from families or professionals in the community.
Our group therapy options are designed to help children and teens to boost skills in dealing with issues such as behavior, anxiety, worry, ADHD, executive functioning challenges and more.
