Yes, all psychological services are strictly confidential. This means that anything that our client(s) share within our sessions is both private and protected. We can only communicate your information to third parties with your written permission. By law, we will have to break confidentiality in some specific circumstances.
As we are not medical professionals, we can not prescribe medication. However, should medication be of interest, we work closely with Kindercare Pediatrics and other physicians in the community.

Every client's mental health circumstance is unique and requires a tailored and thoughtful care plan. Typically, non-pharmaceutical approaches to mental health challenges (e.g. therapy) are used prior to considering medication. Sometimes, however, medications are helpful to enhance and support recovery. The decision to treat a mental health concern with medication is ultimately made by the client/family after extensive discussion with his/her therapist and consultation with a physician.
