It’s not easy growing up. Children and adolescents typically face challenges at all ages that are unique to their genetics, individual development, past experiences, and family culture. As we recognize the individual needs of our clients, we offer a variety of services geared to meet each child’s specific needs and encourage healthy development.

Our therapists, case managers, and psychiatrists share a common goal, and work together to provide services for children between birth and 18 years of age. They utilize best practices that focus on the strengths of the child and his/her family, thus promoting strong relationships and healthy futures for each child enrolled in the program.

Services we offer include:

Early Childhood Program

This program offers therapy, consultation, assessments, medication management, and/or referrals to the parents of children from birth to age eight, who have no health insurance or don’t qualify for Medicaid. The cost is based on a sliding scale fee. Day care providers, Headstart, or preschool teachers can also access services when working with children who exhibit problem behaviors.

Children’s Psychiatry

Health Solutions employs a team of board-certified child psychiatrists who have extensive knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of all childhood behavioral health disorders. They work closely with the child’s therapist and case manager to ensure seamless and effective treatment.

Therapy & Case Management

Our masters-level therapists offer child-centered, strengths-focused, evidence-based, and culturally-sensitive therapy to children enrolled in the program. Our case managers are skilled in helping families identify their specific needs and locate the appropriate resources to meet those needs. Wrap-around services are available.

School Based Services

Our therapists can provide focused, short-term treatment to students with emotional and/or behavioral problems. They will also work with school staff, parents, and guardians in coordinating intervention and treatment services for these students.

Schools we provides services to include: East High School, South High School, Central High School, Centennial High School, Risley International Academy of Innovation, Roncalli STEM Academy, Pueblo Academy of Arts, Heroes Academy, Irving Elementary, Liberty Point Elementary, and Vineland Elementary.

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy tries to identify and change negative thinking patterns and pushes for positive behavioral changes.

DBT may be used to treat suicidal and other self-destructive behaviors. It teaches patients skills to cope with, and change, unhealthy behaviors.
