Our individual sessions last 50 minutes and will be scheduled based upon the treatment plan and schedule discussed in your initial assessment.

Family Sessions

Throughout their clinical experience our therapists have seen benefits from incorporating family sessions into our teens treatment plan. Family sessions are utilized to help adolescents improve their communication with their parents, particularly when addressing uncomfortable and difficult topics. In addition, it helps parents gain insight into their teens thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while therapists assist parents in gaining additional ways to support and encourage their teen. Please note that these are not “family therapy” sessions. Family sessions will be scheduled based on your treatment plan schedule discussed in initial assessment and are 90 minutes long.

Parent Consultation

Our customized parent consultation and support services are designed to provide parents with the tools, support, and understanding they need to successfully navigate through the various levels of the mental health system. These consultation services will be tailored to fit your needs as a parent and will help guide you through the next steps including assistance with locating and securing appointments with therapists and/or psychiatrists that specialize in areas that best meet your child’s needs, guidance and advocacy with IEP/504 plans including attendance to meetings, and parent coaching and support to assist in the development of skills to effectively parent adolescents/young adults through their symptoms. Whether you need a one-time appointment to gain knowledge or education or you need several consultation appointments to secure more individualized treatment plan for your child, we are available to help and have several packages available.

Cost: Pricing varies per client.

 

Parent Check-In

These short 30 minutes sessions may be scheduled and utilized by parents or the clinician when they feel there are important developments or changes in their teens progress that need to be discussed in more detail than can be done over the phone.

Group Therapy

There is strong supportive evidence from research that shows group therapy can have a significant impact on ones recovery. Group therapy not only allows you to interact with our clinicians but also gain other perspectives and support from your peers. Our clinicians are currently offering the following groups:

Do you have a teen who is stressed? Struggling with the pressures of teen life? Feels anxious, distracted, or overwhelmed?

When inspiring awareness through mindfulness, we transform. Everything changes. Instead of reacting mindlessly or revolting with self-destructive behavior we evolve to respond mindfully. Instead of feeling disconnected or helpless, we find everything we do reflects the connection of our personal lives to all others.

Mindfulness is noticing your thoughts, feelings and physical sensations in the present moment without judgement. The objective of practicing mindfulness is to develop and strengthen one’s ability to pay attention, and to be aware of the consequence of one’s feelings and behavior.

The Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) Program will help teens in 9th-12th grade learn simple yet effective mindfulness practices. Improve Focus, Manage Stress, and Enjoy Life. During the 8-week course, teens will use the techniques of mindfulness to intentionally focus awareness and observations of their own emotions and behaviors from moment to moment. Outside practice will be expected to discuss in sessions.
