Behavioral Health Services

About HIP Behavioral Health

Behavioral health, also called mental or emotional health, is an important component of your child and family’s overall wellbeing. HIP offers behavioral health services as a part of your child’s primary care to promote prevention and early intervention of behavioral challenges. In order to access these services, your child needs to be an established patient at HIP so that we can provide coordinated care with your PCP.

We aim to address a wide array of behavioral health concerns by promoting an individual’s strengths and building resilience in the family. As a part of the primary care team, we offer directed behavioral interventions that target specific concerns. Below are examples of the types of challenges we work with families to address. Please call to find out more information about treatment options, including information about concerns not listed below.

 

  • ADHD or executive functioning challenges

  • Adherence to medical interventions including pill swallowing, implementing asthma treatment regimens, and promoting healthy lifestyle choices

  • Anxiety, worries, or obsessive thoughts/behaviors

  • Behavior concerns including tantrums and aggression

  • Body image/self-esteem

  • Depressed mood

  • Developmental delays or differences

  • Eating/feeding difficulties including picky eating, food restriction, and bingeing

  • Enuresis and encopresis

  • Grief or loss

Your child does not need to have an established diagnosis to seek behavioral health support. Our goal is to identify and provide support for behavioral challenges any time they are interfering with your child’s or family’s wellbeing. Research consistently demonstrates early intervention of mental health concerns leads to better outcomes for individuals and communities.

 

 

What to Expect

We offer behavioral interventions that target specific concerns. This include a brief diagnostic period (typically 1-2 visits) followed by visits focused on implementing interventions and assessing their efficacy. Each child and situation is unique, and we will work with your family to determine the recommended length of treatment.

 


Appointments

The Behavioral Health Clinician (BHC) is involved in the following visits:

 

  • First Visit/Consultation- You will meet with your PCP and BHC to identify behavioral health needs and to determine if services at HIP or in the community are more appropriate to meet your family’s needs. Typically 30 to 60 minutes.

 

  • Behavioral Health Visits- You will meet with the BHC to work on specific behaviors identified during the consultation. Typically ~45 minutes.

 

  • Care Coordination/Referrals- The BHC will provide support in connecting to community services that are most appropriate to your family. Typically ~30 minutes

                                                                                                                 

  • Add-on to Well Visits (as available)- The BHC will provide support during Well Visits for any behavioral health needs that arise when available. If not available, your PCP will help develop a follow-up plan to ensure your concerns are addressed.

 

We can provide the majority of these visits in-person or via telehealth. Let us know which modality is best for your family and we will do our best to accommodate.

 

We do not provide long-term outpatient therapy, intensive therapeutic services, substance use treatment, or cognitive/academic psychological evaluations. We are happy to support your family in connecting to these services through our Consultation or Care Coordination options.

Promoting integrated mind-body wellness is one of my passions, so I was excited to find HIP, a pediatric practice with that mission at heart! I love being a part of the medical team to provide integrated behavioral health services to children and their families. I work across the pediatric spectrum of care by providing support in the perinatal/infancy period through adolescence. My clinical focus is on promoting wellbeing throughout childhood, and to do this, I often use mindfulness and yoga as an adjunct to behavioral interventions.

 

I am originally from North Carolina and did the majority of my training on the east coast; I obtained my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia and completed internship at the University of Miami School of Medicine. I found my way to Colorado for postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where I focused on perinatal, infant, and early childhood mental health. I had the wonderful opportunity to work in two primary care clinics at the Children's Hospital Colorado, providing prevention and intervention services to children and families before transitioning to HIP.
