We accept clients of all ages and practice a variety of clinical techniques such as: Animal Supported Therapy, Play Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Psychodynamic Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Experiential Therapy. Many of our clients have been victims of abuse, neglect, or trauma, and are struggling with mental illness, addiction, PTSD,poverty, autism, or other learning disabilities. Each of our therapists has different strengths and we work to match you with a practitioner who will best meet your specific needs.
In our “Rescues, Rescue” program, we work with local animal shelters and organizations to adopt homeless dogs and train them to become therapy or emotional support pets for children and families who struggle with trauma, divorce, autism, and emotional disabilities. We also partner with other organizations to provide equine and other animal- focused treatments. Our site utilizes “Therapy Chickens” and our girls are eager to meet you!
By operating under a family-centered, strengths-based approach, we are able to partner with caregivers to assess the needs of the entire family, set goals, and work collaboratively to create and implement an action plan and specific goals. Communicating with family members in an open, honest way facilitates a culture of long-term support and mutual cooperation. In this model, we provide direct case management services and strive to meet the individual needs of each family member. It is important that all voices be heard. We offer clients family sessions in conjunction with private, one-on-one sessions with separate therapists within our practice so we are able to simultaneously address individual and group needs.
Coaching, Counseling, & Crisis Intervention
At times birth, foster, adoptive, kinship, or adoptive families may struggle to effectively navigate parenting, behaviors, or environmental stressors in a home. We work to stabilize families suffering with mental, behavioral, physical, emotional, or situational distress and problems by providing necessary immediate or long-term assistance and care. Our personalized assessments help families identify key difficulties, strengthen connectedness, grow relationships; and help clients form appropriate boundaries, structure and routine. We also assist multi generational, blended, divorced, traditional, and non-traditional families facing a variety of intricate issues.
Education & Training
Having frequent access to training, support, information, and credentialing opportunities is critical for parents, potential foster or adoptive parents, social workers, educators, and professionals. Our experts provide direct service and partner with other groups and agencies to increase opportunities for learning and professional development. We have traveled nationally and internationally with our work and experiences.
We also serve individual students of all ages to help them achieve their academic goals. For younger students who are unable to thrive in a traditional academic setting, we offer an intimate Therapeutic Learning Center day program that addresses the complex and unique social emotional needs of these youth.
