Our Approach

Expert Care
Close icon

Licensed therapists and psychologists specially trained to work with children and young adults (ages 10-24).

Backed by clinical evidence
Close icon

Our approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Behavioral Parent Training (BPT), two gold-standard treatments that have been clinically proven to work.

Tailored to your child
Close icon

No two children are the same, which means no two care plans are either — the length of treatment varies based on your family’s needs and goals.

Designed to empower

Therapists provide children (and families) with specific tools to empower resilient, fulfilling lives.

Flexible scheduling, zero waitlists

See a therapist in as little as one week. And with sessions offered virtually, you can access care when and where you need it most.

Families love Handspring

“Every aspect has been great so far. The onboarding process was quick and easy - everyone was so professional, responsive, and compassionate. Our child was quickly matched with a therapist with a suitable personality, style, and approach. My child used to dread therapy - now he looks forward to it!Additionally, the parents needs are being addressed as well - the option to have that support is invaluable!”

Handspring Mom, NJ

“My son is slowly warming up to counseling but we are making strides and I am seeing glimmers of progress. It’s been about 2 months and I am very happy with how things have gone so far and looking forward to continued progress as school starts.”

Handspring Mom, FL

“I have seen a huge improvement in the way my daughter communicates, manages her emotions, and behaves since she started her weekly sessions. I am so grateful to see such a positive impact with her and within a short period of time. Tried other solutions and none worked. Thankful for Handspring services helping our family.”
