As your child's primary healthcare provider we want to ensure that we are caring for the whole child, including their mental health. Please always discuss any concerns you have about your child's emotional, behavioral, or developmental health with us at every visit. If your child is seeing a therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist please ask them to share their treatment plan with Kiwi Pediatrics.

If you are trying to find a mental health provider for your child, you do not need a referral from Kiwi Pediatrics. You can contact your insurance directly to locate preferred providers within your insurance plan.
