Our team at Park Nicollet Child and Family Behavioral Health will fully evaluate your child’s strengths and weaknesses. We pay particular attention to the interaction of biological, cognitive, environmental and family system factors. We’re highly skilled at helping children grow, learn and adapt successfully to their environment.

Our specialists are trained to work with children of all ages. We partner with families, primary care doctors and pediatricians to provide patients with comprehensive, personalized care. Whether your child struggles with mood disorders, anxiety, attention disorders, autism spectrum disorder, learning difficulties, communication disorders, or problems with conduct, we can help.

Our team includes a wide range of experts including:

  • Advanced practice nurses
    Advance practiced registered nurses have training to assess, diagnose and treat a variety of mental, emotional and developmental disorders. We treat a wide array of mental and behavioral concerns, prescribe medication and oversee ongoing medication management.
  • Child and adolescent psychiatrists
    Board-certified physicians specialize in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental and emotional disorders in children and adolescents. We carefully consider biological, psychological and social factors in our work with patients and their families. This information guides our formulation of comprehensive treatment plans which may include prescription medications.
  • Developmental and behavioral pediatricians
    Board-certified child development and behavior experts help families understand their children’s unique development or learning style – and how that impacts day-to-day behavior. Our team of pediatricians help children with developmental delays, autism spectrum disorders, attention disorders, learning disorders and disruptive behaviors. These clinicians are involved in individual and team assessments, medication management and ongoing follow-up of patients with developmental disorders.
  • Neuropsychologists
    Licensed professionals and experts in brain-behavior relationships. The neuropsychological evaluation is designed to explore and describe multiple areas of development such as memory, attention, perception, personality, coordination, and language. Understanding a child or adolescent’s neuropsychological profile facilitates the identification and implementation of an effective treatment plan.
  • Psychologists, clinical social workers, family therapists
    Licensed professionals and experts in the assessment and treatment of behavioral, developmental, emotional, learning, and social disorders. We take into account all aspects of child development in our approach to assessment and treatment. Our interventions focus on helping both the child or adolescent and the family.
  • Speech and language pathologists
    Trained professionals with expertise in the assessment and treatment of speech, language and social communication disorders. Our speech and language pathologists participate in individual and team assessments of patients.
