081007 0028 mosaic closeup EDDuring the COVID-19 pandemic: Most of our therapy services have been creatively adapted to using face-to-face online videoconferencing, using Webex (HIPAA compliant for privacy). Our Business/Tech manager tests the connection for clients in advance of the first session. We are finding that most children, teens, and adults are quite able to have very valuable therapy sessions during the pandemic. We mutually assess this process during the first three or four sessions and make suggestions on how to best allow for the desired healing to happen. During the summer/ early fall we will occasionally have the option of in person/ outside sessions for all ages – using masks and safety guidelines, weather permitting.

THERAPY FOR ALL AGES — BIRTH TO 99

The Family Center offers a range of therapy modalities to meet the individual needs of adults (including couple therapy), teenagers, and children. These modalities include Contextual Family Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Focusing, and Mindfulness Based Play-Family Therapy. We combine theory & practice from these various fields to provide a rich set of resources for healing. Research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology espouses more than just Talk Therapy, and recommends the integration of the modalities we use here at the center.

While our integration of theory and modalities provides help for specific mental health issues and a way to achieve symptom relief, it does so through the healing of the whole person within the context of his or her life history and relational world. Therefore, the healing can be holistic and often deeply transforming for a client of any age. The modalities used depend on the needs of each individual. Go back to the Drop Down List under Counseling for more information for Children, Teens, and Adults for sample lists of some problems that people bring, when they come here for help.

Client pays for each session and is reimbursed directly by their insurance company for a percentage of the cost. (Reimbursement usually ranges from 50-80% depending on the insurance contract for mental health services.) We do not accept HMO plans or medical assistance.
