Client Services

Individual, Family and Group Therapy

Therapy is offered  by Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) trained to provide quality services that are individualized to meet the clients' needs.

  • Individual Therapy:  Individual therapy is one-on-one with your therapist. Individual therapy is appropriate when dealing with issues that need to be discussed without another person. Individual therapy is often the most intense, focusing on areas such as anxiety, depression, guilt, fear, self-doubt, grief, and other negative behaviors that are impacting our day to day life.   
  • Family Therapy: Works with the family system to help with parent-child conflicts, problems between siblings and helps to move the family towards healing, better communication, and a healthier relationships.
  • Group Therapy: Brings together people with common concerns and needs who can offer support and guidance to each other . Groups offered are Peer Groups, Adolescent groups and Women's groups.

Circles of Support/Person Centered Planning

A circle of support (COS) is a strength based model that builds on the positive qualities of a client and involves a group of people coming together to help formulate, promote and support the goals of a person in need.  The client’s involvement in the circle of support empowers them to take ownership of the decisions in their lives.  A COS is based on the understanding of the importance of relationships in our lives.


Family Group Conferencing

Family group conferencing is very similar to a Circle of Support but involves the family system instead of an individual. It brings parents, extended family, friends and acquaintances into the decision making process in a way usually reserved for professionals. 


The family group conferencing allows the family to be the decision makers. The importance of the family’s involvement in the process is reinforced at every step from the referral, to planning and the meeting itself.  Participation is voluntary.
