Individual and Family counseling with one of our highly qualified therapists is the most common and effective approach in our General Mental Health Program, although group counseling may be utilized when deemed appropriate.
Our programs are designed not just to treat the child, but to strengthen and support the family unit so that the child’s progress is sustainable. Once an assessment is complete and a child’s needs identified, an appropriate treatment plan is devised.
We use a variety of age appropriate treatment strategies during counseling including traditional “talk” therapy, which allows for discussion and processing of events and emotions to gain a better understanding of behavior and to learn new coping skills.
Play and art therapy are also used frequently with young children, and allow the child to express himself through guided play or artwork, and issues are processed creatively through that medium.
