Therapy and Counseling Services

You say To-may-to, I say To-mah-to

Therapy and Counseling are names of the same service that are often used interchangeably. Both services are delivered by mental health professionals with at least a Master's Degree and appropriate licensing.  Availability varies from office to office.

HCT (Home Community Treatment) is an in-home service that offers a combination of case management and therapy services to individuals and families provided by bachelor and master's level staff who work closely with the family as a team.

Our Children's Therapy service utilizes a recovery approach that partners with children and families to maximize the likelihood of reaching treatment goals through adherence to research on the factors that make mental health treatment successful. Our approach privileges the client’s voice in treatment to the maximum extent possible, while adhering to professional and ethical standards of practice, and celebrates clients’ strengths and heroic qualities. Uniquely, the approach incorporates regular measurement of client progress by both the child and caretakers, as well as attention to their perception of the treatment process, using simple tools that can be administered in under a minute. These therapy tools are known as the Partners for Change Outcome Management System (PCOMS), and the data these tools provide us are gathered and analyzed through a system known as Better Outcomes Now. The use of PCOMS enables us to make adjustments to the treatment as needed so as to enhance the likelihood of the successful resolution of difficulties as quickly as possible.
