Notice on COVID-19
Welcome to CCD
We’re now on Nextdoor! Please be sure to visit us and recommend our mental health services to your neighbors!
Raising children and teens can be the most important thing you do but why does it sometimes feel so hard? Most of us are parents, too and we understand the struggles you might be facing in your parenting journey.
Children and teens face many challenges these days often leaving parents struggling with how to help them. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-harm, bullying are issues that we see increasing in children. We hope the problems will get better or go away. Sometimes watching our children struggle makes us feel guilty or powerless.
Perhaps you are dealing with your struggles and don’t have the energy to cope with your child’s struggles. Are you concerned about your teen’s choices? Is your child having tantrums that seem to come out of nowhere? CCD provides mental health services throughout Delaware. In addition to serving in dozens of schools across the state, we are conveniently located in Newark, DE with offices in Wilmington and Claymont. We are also available virtually, providing telemental health on various easy-to-use platforms!
We're here to support you and your child. We not only care about helping children, we care about parents too.
If you're tired of losing sleep, worrying, getting calls from schools, and want better for your family, we are here to help. We have therapists who can help in various stages of development. We work with children ages 2 to 18 years old as well as adults. We provide services in most schools and our offices.
We help teach children how to listen better, control their emotions, feel good about themselves, and increase their self-confidence.
My name is Lisa R. Savage, LCSW. I’m the founder of the Center for Child Development. I founded this agency because I was dissatisfied with the lack of services available to children and their families in the state of Delaware. I wanted to make it easier for families to get help when they most need it. My pledge to you is that you will always be treated with the utmost respect and that our staff will be responsive to your needs. If you ever have a complaint or compliment, reach out to me directly. You will always get a prompt response. We care about your child and family, so your experience with us must be stellar. Healthy and happy families are the goal, and we look forward to being a part of your journey.
Psychotherapy is an investment in yourself and your family. Many of us experience challenges and major decisions that are sometimes best served with the guidance of a professional. Our team is capable and experienced to guide you and your family through difficult situations.
