Counseling services are offered in schools, client homes, and at the counseling center site.

Standard of Practice

Training and supervision are provided to therapists in proven standard of practice for the individual, family and group therapies.  Comprehensive assessments with the child, youth, and primary caregiver are completed in the individual's native tongue and at the pace most comfortable for the child, youth, and the family.  If possible, we take into consideration issues of acculturation, literacy, cultural norms, and the development of trust.  Assessments create the foundation for child, youth, and family involvement in treatment planning.  Treatment Plans are living documents; reviewed and updated as treatment goals are met.
