Child & Family Services

Our children are our future is more than just a catch phrase to us. It’s the principle underlying our approach to working with children and families in the communities we serve. We owe it to them and to ourselves to give them the best possible start in life.

This means acting quickly when emotional and mental health issues interfere with family, school, and community relationships, and jeopardize the health, well-being, and academic performance of our children.

Our Child & Family Services will help you find effective solutions to the emotional difficulties families experience when faced with difficult behavioral problems. Counseling and psychotherapy can help to reduce destructive behaviors and patterns of thought, increase impulse control, and cultivate healthy attitudes and healthier behavioral routines.

We’re dedicated to strengthening and empowering families by cultivating the health, wellness, and resilience of all family members. We focus on building the capacity of families to resolve emotional and behavioral problems that arise from organic mental health disorders, circumstances in the home or community, the impact of veterans returning to the home, trauma, and other causes.
