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.
