Psychotherapy and Evaluation Services

Why is my child acting out or shutting down?

Every child's perception and reaction to potential toxic stress is different. Often when we can't explain a child's behavior, it can be due to underlying trauma or stress. At Starr Behavioral Health, our clinicians work with children 0-21 years old to build resilience.
