What Makes Us Unique

      Our strong emphasis on family dynamics and parent coaching while treating the teen or young adult is what makes our program unique. Our focus on the parallel process guides the family towards sustainable health and well being beyond their experience in the program. Therefore, parent (or guardian) involvement is required and considered essential.

      Unlike other programs, our teen and young adult groups meet one evening  and one Saturday per week, allowing for minimal disruption to normal daily routine.

Our Philosophy of Care is Simple

We believe that psychological symptoms and maladaptive behaviors have a high correlation to a rupture in the core attachment between parent and child resulting in poor family functioning.
