A diagnosis of a bleeding disorder, clotting disorder, stroke, or related condition can be unpredictable and adjustment to your diagnosis and treatment plan may be stressful over time. The HTC is proud to house an integrated psychosocial team consisting of two social workers, a health psychologist and a child life specialist. 

As active members of your comprehensive care team, we provide care, services and resources unique to your family and individual needs to assist in illness-related coping across the lifespan. One of our team members will meet with you or your child during their comprehensive clinic visit, while all of us are available at any time as needed.

Meet our incredible team here.
