TREATMENT INVOLVES:

In this 90-minute intake, we’ll have time to learn about your teen’s history and current struggles. We’ll look at any records you already have and do our own assessment. If the teen is comfortable, we would ask the parents to join for part of the session. 

We ask parents to give full confidentiality, as long as there are no safety concerns. 

And yes, it can work.

We don't want your child in therapy forever.

We want them to have the work under their belt so they can turn back to their new learning with each new challenge. Our thorough process ensures that teens are set up for the best possible long-term success.

How we help

You can completely alter their future.
Let's make that happen.
