Our Treatment

We are leaders in providing attachment disorder and trauma therapy for families, couples and individual adults

Adult/Couples Therapy

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.

Family Therapy

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.


Dr. Terry Levy offers therapists Life Script: a free tool for starting discussions about family-of-origin issues.

Outpatient Therapy

We are experts in treating substance abuse, trauma, school issues, parenting, problem solving, anxiety, depression and family issues — especially in blended families.

Intensive Outpatient Program

World-recognized psychologists Terry Levy and Michael Orlans originally developed this treatment format to provide help for children and families needing specialized services unavailable where they live. For more than 20 years, families and couples have traveled to Evergreen from every region of the United States and from other countries to receive therapy for attachment-related trauma.

The power of calm

The only effective way to positively influence children is to gain their trust, making them willing to follow your direction. A calm and consistent approach works best with all children. But it is especially critical to remain emotionally balanced with children who have compromised attachment.
The power of calm

Parents need to connect, not control

The ability to form and maintain positive connections is essential for healthy childhood development. This involves taking into account the needs, feelings and opinions of others, and is accomplished by understanding and respecting another person's point of view. The resulting rapport makes it possible for your child to develop trust in you, be open to your influence and seek your guidance.
