Working to improve the mental health and
wellbeing of children and families
Welcome to Central Ohio Pediatric
Our Mission is to improve mental health and wellbeing by empowering children and families to be the best versions of themselves.
Empower the individual
We focus on helping people to be agents in their own lives, to take responsibility for their own well-being and those most important to them.
Capitalize on collective knowledge
Simply put, we are better together. Parents and children are a wealth of knowledge about their own experience, hopes, and aspirations. We all bring something to the table when working as a team.
Treatment plans are informed by research, clinical expertise, and a thorough discussion of family and patient goals. Treatment planning is a continuous and ongoing discussion throughout our work together and everyone has a seat at the table.
Believe in the power of resilience
Resilience is our ability to respond to challenges and roadblocks put before us. Human beings have the capacity for resilience by nature. However, there are tools and skills that we can learn and practice to improve our resilience.
See the whole system
Individuals are part of a complicated system around them. By focusing on the environments which are important to patients, we can make more significant improvements in their lives.
Foster happiness in others
In the end, our goal is to help people find happiness, joy, and satisfaction in life. We want people to live life to their fullest potential and will actively work to that goal.
