Welcome to The Child & Family Institute.

Kisco), Connecticut (Greenwich), and New York City (midtown Manhattan, Park Slope, Brooklyn). We hope you will find our website a valuable resource to learn more about CBT and the wide range of behavioral health treatment and consultation services we provide to children, adolescents, young adults, parents/families, mental health agencies, schools, and clinicians in the community.
