Behavioral Pediatrics in Lake Oswego, Oregon
Children all struggle with behavioral problems at times, and this is a normal part of development. However, if these challenges are getting in the way of daily routines, school work, or relationships with family or friends, we are here to help! We use evidence-based treatment techniques to help parents and children learn coping skills quickly to experience relief! By collaborating with your child’s pediatrician, we can help rule out any medical causes that may contribute to these behaviors.
Treatment in Typically Developing Children Helps with:
Coping with Chronic Diseases
Anxiety with transitions
Childhood Fears and Phobias
Mealtime Behavior Problems

Tics and other habit disorders (using CBIT*)
*Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT)
CBIT is an evidence-based form of treatment for children with tics and Tourette Syndrome. We offer CBIT services upon referral from your child’s pediatrician. CBIT takes dedication and practice, but it is an effective form of intervention to reduce tic frequency and intensity.
