Who receives our services?
Specializing in trauma-informed therapy, the Center’s therapy staff offer services both to abused children and to their non-offending family members who are dealing with the aftermath of abuse. To improve the likelihood of recovery from abuse, we provide therapy for the whole family for as long as the services are needed to help them rebuild.
Does therapy cost the families money?
No. All services are offered at no cost and are designed to meet the unique needs of each client.
Who conducts the therapy?
Therapy sessions are conducted by master's level licensed and board-certified clinical staff members. As a teaching facility, we also utilize graduate level student interns and interns holding master’s degrees and temporary licenses under the guidance of Board-approved supervisors.

How are referrals obtained?
Referrals for clinical services come directly from partner agencies allowing therapists to intervene at the earliest point of crisis. Therapy staff obtain psychosocial histories for clients and their families to determine the most appropriate intervention. Individual treatment plans are then developed. Referrals to various internal or external resources are assessed to ensure the best possible success for clients.
