Counseling Services offer both individual counseling with a strong family involvement component as well as group services. Our agency specializes in serving individuals, children and adults who have experienced trauma and have licensed therapists to provide several evidenced based therapy modalities. We have thoughtfully reviewed all models of therapy that we provide and make a commitment through training, supervision and resources, to ensure that our staff in this program can provide them well.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy, trauma-focused therapy, is a specific approach to therapy that is built on the understanding of how traumatic experiences affect an individual’s mental, emotional and physical well-being. This type of therapy aims to help children, adolescents and adult survivors heal from the effects of trauma. Each person’s experience of their difficult experiences is unique. Staff members and supervisors spend time understanding participants and their unique needs so that they can best support the type of services that will assist in participant’s healing journey. Staff work with an entire community of additional supportive services and can assist with connecting to additional resources if needed.
