Founder's Story

CenterPointe, Inc., opened in 2003 when founder Christine Kildow, Ph.D., recognized a need for a professional clinic focused solely on children and their families, offering a full range of behavioral and mental healthcare services under one roof. Dr. Kildow’s doctoral training in developmental and child psychology inspired her to establish CenterPointe, where children and families receive the highest level of professional care. As clinic director, Dr. Kildow remains actively involved in the day-to-day operations of CenterPointe.
