Outpatient Counseling Services

Our focus is to provide a wide variety of community-based mental health counseling services. Family and Adolescent Services provides therapeutic services to individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages. Our therapists are trained to utilize evidence-based, best practice interventions. The staff is comprised of licensed and licensed-eligible professionals with several years of experience.
They are clinically trained to assist individuals with daily stressors: Depression, anxiety, trauma survivors, anger management, domestic violence, substance abuse, marital conflict, and issues of abuse & neglect. In addition, our clinicians provide therapy for foster care children; individuals moving towards independent living; and those participating in Employee Assistance Programs.

Our therapy is conducted in a safe, secure, and family-like environment that helps to encourage individual and family involvement. This helps to ensure a more accurate diagnosis that will facilitate a more structured treatment plan that helps individuals to overcome emotional, social, and educational challenges.

How it Works:
The perspective referral source contacts Family and Adolescent Services to make an initial verbal or written referral for Outpatient Counseling to the Clinical Director or designee. Referrals are accepted from physicians, courts, parole and probation, any other professional agency, or parent(s)/guardian(s).
The Clinical Director will conduct an assessment to determine the prospective client’s diagnosis and an individualized service plan.  The client will receive twenty-six sessions in the first year of treatment and an additional authorization is required for additional service. The client will be discharged when the goals of the service plan have been met.
