Evidence-based Therapy for Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults
Serving La Jolla and San Diego
Our whole family participated in treatment at BrightMind for our 17 year old son's eating disorder. We sincerely appreciated the help we received and consider it a turning point in our son's recovery after trying other treatments that didn't work. He is doing amazing now- he is at healthy weight, has no anxiety around eating and is off to college next year! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
-Father of 17 year old
My 12-year old daughter started seeing Dr. Peck after she started to have anxiety and panic attacks that prevented her from going to school and other activities. She learned so many amazing skills in her sessions that will help her for the rest of her life and she loved coming to sessions.
-Mother of 12 year old
Therapy was a- if not the- primary cause of my newfound health and happiness. Thank you for giving me that.
