In-Home Counseling Services
Who are we?
- We are a team of licensed mental health professionals and life skills practitioners who provide counseling and skills services in our office, homes, schools and community settings
- Our team members bring a wide array of experience from past and present work in child and family serving agencies
- We work closely with professionals in Community Corrections and Social Services on behalf of families and children.
Who do we serve?
- Families with children at risk for out-of-home placements or in need of transitional services following a placement
- Children on probation or at risk of entering correctional systems
- Children who struggle with emotional and behavioral disorders, including depression and anxiety
- Children who have difficulties in school settings and with truancy
- Families who need community support
- Children with problematic antisocial patterns of behavior
- Children who have experienced abuse, neglect and other forms of trauma.
How do we work?
- Therapy and skills services are provided in least restrictive settings (home and community based)
- Parents and primary care givers are equal partners in treatment planning
- Assessments include a description of strengths and needs in all areas of functioning (i.e. family, school, peer group, community etc.)
- Treatment plans are individualized to meet unique developmental needs of families and children
- Therapists and skills practitioners work to improve relationships between parents/primary care givers and children
- Practitioners coordinate services between formal and informal support systems to meet diverse needs of families and children.
What are the benefits?
- Interventions in natural settings are cost effective and promote long lasting change
- Sessions are scheduled around needs of families (i.e. working parents and children in school)
- Therapists combine solid clinical skill with creativity and compassion to help families in difficult situations
- Studies prove that multisystemic interventions are more effective than traditional methods for families with complex needs. (Dr. Scott Henngeler, Family Services Research Center, University of South Carolina).
Working with a counselor:
- We gather insurance information (usually medical assistance or prepaid medical assistance, PMAP’s) for home based services
- Practitioners are assigned based on individual and family needs
- You have the option to pay cash if you do not wish to go through insurance.
