What Works

Everyone knows that GROUP COUNSELING is the most effective form of therapy. Youth sharing experiences and perceptions with each other, guided by a trained professional inspires an “I’m not alone” attitude. This is an INTENSIVE Out-Patient Program. That means 9 hours of face to face contact each week resulting in much faster progress. The curriculum is on an 8 week rotation which means you can jump in at any time. We help youth identify and reach goals that THEY SET. Each client receives an assessment to make sure they will receive the help they are looking for. Regular family group sessions unify parents with these powerful practices to use at home.

  • Group Sessions

    Group is set up so you're meeting with people close to your own age.

  • Individual Sessions

    Sometimes you just need some one on one with a counselor.

  • Family Session Groups

    Helping families work together to establish healthy and productive communication.

Group Sessions

Group sessions are a shared experience that involves a trained professional and others who are working through similar barriers. This method inspires an “I’m not alone” attitude and can focus on interpersonal relationships or on particular concerns shared by group members. A full range of emotional issues can be introduced in group sessions, including ineffective behaviors, attachments, anxieties, and forms of depression.

Individual Sessions

The clinicians meet individually with participants and or families to collaborate on addressing limitations or conditions preventing the participant from attaining a full quality of life. These sessions are designed to confront barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being and aim to increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, love, courage, and peace. It is a journey of becoming more self-aware.

Family Group Sessions

Real change is brought about by working together with a team. Family group sessions help bring parents and children together by establishing values, goals, and creating accountability. Parents learn the resiliency tools their children are taught in group, so they are able to use them at home and improve communication. The family, participant and counselor decide when the goals have been reached and when participants are ready to graduate from the group.

Online Resilience Education

Bringing these mental health practices into the home improves communication and culture in your family. While clients learn the Life Launch Centers Resilience Model© in group, family members can learn the principles at home to open healthy discussions about how everyone is working together to strengthen families and strengthen futures.
