Family Based Services

Family based services provide family therapy, individual, and group sessions to strengthen family relationships, improve parent-child interactions, heal traumatic experiences, and address mental health substance use issues.  Services are provided by Master’s level, licensed Psychotherapists using evidence based practices including Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and EMDR. Psychiatry care is integrated into therapy services.
