At Developing Minds we are dedicated to helping you, or your child reach their full potential. New to seeking mental health support? Not a problem. We believe therapy should be a collaborative experience and our staff and providers will walk you through the entire process.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
When it comes to child therapy, we are dedicated to helping your child or adolescent talk about what they are thinking, and learn better ways to effectively manage their feelings.
This can be difficult with children and adolescents. We have multiple therapists who specialize in evidence based treatments like play therapy and movement therapy to connect with your child. Both utilize a variety of techniques to help the child identify and communicate using familiar activities and instruction.
Our Bothell and Bellevue offices are perfectly designed to provide environments that are engaging for both the patient and therapist. They offer a safe space for the patient to better understand him or herself, and develop better tools to help conquer the challenges they are facing in their lives.
We provide psychological counseling to people coming from Kirkland, Totem Lake, Woodinville, Kenmore, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Northbend, Renton, Newcastle and many other areas near Seattle.
We provide multiple forms of supportive therapy made to treat children, adolescents, and adults on an individual basis. Our patients are allowed to work one-on-one with our licensed therapists to identify and address what is preventing them from reaching their goals.
At Developing Minds our therapists specialize in the most effective forms of treatment, and are certified in a variety of modalities, including cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavior ( DBT), psychodynamic, and mindfulness-based therapies. Sessions are most typically 50 minutes, and will occur on a weekly basis in order to fully engage the issues being tackled. However, based on insurance approval, sessions can range to 45 minutes a session. You and your therapist will continue to have an open dialogue to decide on the optimal frequency of your sessions that will deliver the best results.
Medication Management for Children, Adolescents & Adults
We are dedicated to finding a balanced treatment program that is closely monitored and managed by our team members. Our prescribers and therapists work closely together to monitor the ongoing care of patient’s treatment for many conditions including ADHD, anxiety, depression, and behavior issues.
The first thing you will notice on your first visit is that our psychiatrists work hand in hand with our therapists when it comes medication. One of our experienced therapists will provide the initial assessment to better understand and discuss your concerns. At your first appointment with the prescriber, you will both review the intake assessment and discuss possible medication options. Going forward, you will check-in with your provider every 4 weeks to closely monitor the ongoing care of your treatment.
