Child and Family Outpatient Services
Child and Family Outpatient services are offered to children, ages 3-18, and their families to address emotional and behavioral needs, including mental health and substance use disorders. These office-based services begin with a comprehensive intake assessment. Clinicians then work with individuals and their families to develop strength-based treatment goals, and may use treatment modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, art or play therapy, or Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Outpatient services may include individual therapy, family therapy, parenting support, group counseling, psycho-education, and Acudetox. Our services are trauma-informed, with a goal of increasing safety and connection so that children, adolescents, and their caregivers can learn new skills to improve functioning and wellness.
Treatment goals and progress are assessed on a quarterly basis. Clinicians will provide an estimate of the timeframe recommended for treatment at the conclusion of the intake assessment. Referrals to additional services may also be offered at this time.
