adolescent talk therapy
Our Talk Therapy clinicians’ goal is to meet the complex needs of adolescents (ages 13-21) suffering from significant anxieties, resentments, fears and emotional challenges that negatively affect family life, social functioning, peer relationships and academic achievements. It is our mission to foster resilience and self understanding for adolescents at risk of self harm, destructive behaviors, hospitalization and out of home placement.
We believe that when there is persistent emotional and behavioral distress, consistent talk therapy solutions can address the underlying vulnerabilities and consequences of such conditions.
We also believe in partnership with families, child study teams and community based organizations. Talk Therapy will assist the students in focusing on personal growth as well as academic needs .

Our clinical staff consists of Psychiatrists, Nurse Practitioners, Psychologists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, and Behavioral Health Specialists.
Assistance is available in providing referrals for other services, and staff work closely with other agencies, including the schools, to develop a plan that best meets the needs of the child. Parent/guardian participation is expected and welcomed in all aspects of treatment.
During the initial appointment, the assigned clinician takes a history and makes an assessment of the nature of the problem. Children are then assigned for one or more of a variety of treatment modalities: individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, medication evaluation and monitoring. In addition, full psychological evaluations are recommended by to further assess the child's educational and treatment needs.
