These counseling services help improve the social and psychological functioning of children and their families, support the academic achievement of children, and maximize the family’s overall well-being.

Therapy services address trauma, attachment, daily functioning, domestic violence, anger management, parenting, placement stabilization, substance abuse, permanency, and court involvement. Therapists meet with clients at various office and community locations and work a flexible schedule that includes some evening hours.
