Individual & Family Counseling


The Child Center of NY provides therapy and support to children and families struggling with a range of emotional and social difficulties. Our caring and qualified staff help clients build resilience, develop social-emotional skills, work through trauma, improve self-esteem, succeed in school, and develop coping skills that will help them handle challenges now and in the future.

We offer culturally sensitive assessment and treatment/counseling services, including medication management and psychiatric evaluations (when applicable), by licensed social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, and nurse practitioners. Medicaid and many third-party insurance plans are accepted. Fees for individuals without insurance are determined based on family income.

The Child Center also offers individual and family counseling through the Asian Outreach Program, which was developed in response to the unique needs of the Asian community. Our highly trained bilingual and bicultural therapists understand firsthand the hardships of immigration and are able to break through the language and cultural barriers that often keep Asian children and families from getting the help they need and deserve.
