Programs

Individual Students

We give students the opportunity to speak openly about their experiences in a confidential and safe environment. Our Master-level therapists implement a trauma-informed approach with all youth, utilizing therapeutic models that have proven to be effective when working with adolescents in a school setting.

Behavioral Interventions

We work closely with school administrators to address behavioral issues using a preventative and restorative approach. Therapists meet with students who have received behavioral referrals from school staff, and utilize diverse approaches to identify and address the roots of the problem behavior. This intervention seeks to reduce future behavior referrals and create a learning environment with fewer barriers and distractions for students.

Groups

Our curriculum emphasize meeting students where they are, both physically and mentally, and affords sufficient flexibility to adapt to the unique needs of the participants. Our programs take into consideration students’ unique backgrounds and previous influences, including gender, language and cultural differences, past trauma, personal experiences and beliefs.

Crisis Support

Our therapists are trained in providing crisis intervention, suicide prevention and counseling services to students experiencing extreme emotional distress. We maintain relationships with community agencies, and connect students to specific support services as needed to facilitate the most effective care to youth in their times of crisis.
