Healing Communities One Family at A Time - Deliberate Application of Current Research - Turning Struggle into Strength - Authenticity and Connection Leads to Resilience
Group sessions are the secret sauce in the recipe. 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 is set up so you're meeting with people close to your own age.
Sometimes you just need some one on one with a counselor.
Family Session Groups
Helping families work together to establish healthy and productive communication.
To strengthen communities by helping adolescents, young adults, and families grow the understanding and tools necessary for healing and successfully navigating life’s challenges and transitions.

Your IOP benefit covers treatment. We do a verification of benefits with your insurance company to minimize any out of pocket costs to you. There are 3 components of counseling in the program
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.
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.

What does a Hijacker do? Basically a hijacker is someone that takes over a vehicle and changes the course of direction to fulfill their own objectives, often at the expense of the passengers on board. You may not realize it, but you’ve most likely experienced this before, maybe not physically, but emotionally. It can be[…]
“Always” Always is a powerful word. Few things in this life are “always.” Many things are “often”, or “almost always,” but truly for something to be “always”, it must be an eternal truth or principle. “Remember” Remember is another incredibly powerful word. It’s the basis for the entire discipline of historical studies. Remembering is the[…]
You can’t escape it. Christmas is everywhere. Seems like it creeps into stores and advertising earlier and earlier every year. This year I noticed on October 30th, big box retailers had already taken down the Halloween products and replaced them with Christmas. Forget Thanksgiving. We’ll just skip over November and go straight to the big[…]
AHHH! The Holidays are here! Man you can just feel the anxiety set in. We experience anxiety around the holidays for a variety of reasons. For some it’s financial stress, others it’s facing family and friends with hard relationships, for some it’s just being expected to eat around others. Maybe you’re feeling all of those,[…]
DAD! Can You Come Help Me? Screams my daughter as she is working on some 8th grade math homework. She is staring hopelessly at the computer screen that displays a typical algebra X-Y axis graph with a triangle drawn on it. I ask her what can I do to help. She looks at me with[…]
It’s Friday night and everyone is looking to have some fun. Someone suggest we watch a movie. Someone suggests we go on a walk. Then I have a crazy idea. How about we play Hide-and Seek? Everyone loves the idea, so we turn out all the lights in the house, dress in the darkest clothes[…]
Last week my family went on a trip to Lake Powell. One of the interesting parts of going to Powell is that there is no cell phone coverage up the lake. You have to totally disconnect from the digital world and just spend a week focusing on face to face relationships and exploring fun in[…]
iGen’ers? What the heck is an iGen’er? Well if you were born between 1995 and 2012 then you’re an iGen’er. I guess it’s a mixture of the word generation and all the popular technology that starts with the letter “i.” You grew up in the world that revolves around personal devices and technology. You follow[…]
I was reading with my son the other day, and I could tell he wasn’t paying very close attention. I asked him a simple question about what was meant by a specific phrase in the text, and he immediately hit the internal “panic button.” I could see he was a little embarrassed that he’d been caught[…]
