Mental Health Services

You’ll find mental health practitioners and therapists here who go beyond “what” is happening in a young person’s life to determine “why” it is occurring. We believe in being partners in healing with children experiencing mental health issues. We also believe in including and partnering with the entire family through the healing process.

Our entire staff is trained in trauma informed care and all of our mental health professionals are proficient in delivering trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy.

Our comprehensive mental health programs are individualized and treat children and young people, ages 6 and up, experiencing patterns of behavior that may interrupt their daily function at home, at school or in the community.
