The Home-based Therapy Services provide a combination of the following services to families and individuals: conflict management, communication skills, anger management, REBT therapy, behavior modification, grief work, and relapse prevention. Therapy is given in the natural home environment of families who need assistance recovering from physical, sexual, emotional abuse, and neglect.
A core specialization that our Therapist are trained in is called Play Therapy. There is a desperate need in our community to address the needs of children who have endured trauma in the form of physical, sexual, emotional abuse, and multiple levels of neglect. Play therapy is a valuable tool and can be performed with children of any age thru adulthood. Play is a natural form of communication and allows children and adults alike to express traumatic events that may have occurred pre-verbally. Play therapy uses two methods of interaction directive and non directive play. Play therapy can be used to address a multitude of behaviors including but not limited to aggressive acting out behaviors, withdrawn self-destructive behaviors, grief and loss issues, hearing impairment, difficulties with self-concept and self-esteem, trauma, speech difficulties, autism, aggression and chronic illness.
Therapy services are provided by a qualified master level therapist and include 24/7 crisis intake, intervention, and consultation.
