Areas of Interest
Anxiety, depression, transitional/adjustment issues, family changes, academic/school concerns, self-esteem
concerns, trauma and abuse, and many others…call if you have questions.

The Process
The family/parents/guardians are an important part of the therapeutic process and it is vital that we meet with you
at least occasionally as we see your child. In most cases, we require that the initial assessment take place at the clinic for a couple of reasons. 1. To ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed; 2. To meet with you and get your parental/guardian input; 3. To set some initial goals; and 4. To be sure that your child is appropriate for school-based services as well as agree to it. We would then have occasional appointments at the office to be sure that we are all on the same page and maintain contact.

If they are appropriate for the schools, sessions coincide with the periods of the day in the middle and high schools – so they may have an appointment time that is like 9:07-9:52. In the elementary school, we set a time that is best for everyone. We will also rotate times, so they are not missing the same classes.

Payment
We take a variety of insurances including, but not limited to, Security Health Plan, United Health, Anthem, WEA
Trust, WPS, Multi-Plan/Health EOS, Medicaid, and others.

Does My Child Really Need Therapy?
Great Question! Cardinal Care allows you or your family member the opportunity to meet with a therapist for 4
sessions to determine what level of care might be necessary or if there is something that can be worked out in just a few sessions. As these are completed, we will talk about options of therapists in the area if needed or hopefully the client might feel more equipped to move forward without further intervention.

Questions?
If you have questions about how to proceed with any of this, please do not hesitate to call or email and ask. We are happy to try to help.
