The mission of Dare2Care Pediatrics is to encourage, equip and empower patients and their families to achieve and maintain recovery from distress, mental illness or addiction by compassionately offering research-based interventions with dedicated staff. Through play therapy, musical therapy, or counseling, our team works with your family and trained professionals in order to provide the best mental care for your child. Extensive research has shown that play therapy can assist in behavioral problems, such as anger management, grief and loss, divorce and abandonment, and crisis and trauma and behavioral disorders, such as anxiety, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD), autism or pervasive developmental, academic and social developmental, physical and learning disabilities, and conduct disorders. Play therapy is an effective mental health approach, regardless of age, gender, or the nature of the problem, and works best when a parent, family member, or caretaker is actively involved in the treatment process. We provide resources for parents to provide the best mental health care for their child including:

  • Occupational therapy evaluations
  • Music therapy services
  • Speech therapy evaluations
  • Psychological testing and counseling
  • ADHD treatment and care.
