Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The Child and Family Counseling Center (CFCC) provides empirically based behavioral health therapies to children/adolescents and their families.
We work closely with community pediatricians, medical specialties, schools, and families to provide family-centered behavioral treatments, teaching children and families skills to minimize distress and maximize wellness.
Treatment begins with meeting one of our Behavioral Health therapists for an evaluation that will result in recommendations about ongoing treatment. Patients who are best served by our providers will be referred to psychiatry as appropriate.
As part of UPMC, we collaborate with specialists from Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (WPIC) to assist our patients with medication issues and complex diagnoses as needed.
CFCC staff members have experience providing cognitive-behavioral individual or family-focused therapies for:
When behavioral therapies do not reduce symptoms, we work closely with psychiatrists from WPIC to determine whether medications or other therapies might be helpful.
To begin therapy services, no referral is needed from your primary care physician. Simply call our intake staff at 724-933-3910 or toll free at 1-877-933-3910 to schedule an appointment.
The CFCC clinicians are credentialed by most insurance companies. Authorization from your insurance company may be required. Please call our intake staff at 724-933-3910 for more information.
