All children have the potential to excel in life when given the right tools and support to do so. When working with children family involvement is the key to long-term success and positive change! We have supported families as they explore challenges related to mental health, including:



Trauma (see Trauma Services)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD & ADHD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

Attachment Disorders

Families in transition


Relationship challenges

Self harm

Internet Child Exploitation (ICE)

 In our work with children and families, we work to create goals that are meaningful and supportive to create positive changes and strive to engage all clients by utilizing evidence based interventions while incorporating art and/or play to support this, at times, difficult process.
