We are leaders in helping children, adults and families with trauma and attachment problems
Though there are many similarities in the human experience, we all have unique qualities and problems. You are an important part of the treatment team. We develop a customized program to meet an individual’s and/or couple’s needs through an ongoing blend of assessments and interventions.
The primary goal of treatment is positive change — new choices, perspectives, options, behaviors, coping strategies and relationships. We explore areas such as anger management, conflict resolution, communication skills and improved self-image.
Parents often tell us traditional psychotherapeutic approaches have not been effective with their severely attachment-disordered children, who lack the trust and ability to form a working alliance basic to success in therapy. Our family-systems approach and use of Corrective Attachment Therapy focus on assessing and changing relationship patterns.
