Intensive In-Home Therapy

The Intensive In-Home offers intensive, individualized and family counseling services to children, youth and their families. Services are provided in the home or at community locations best-suited to the client and the family’s needs. Our staff supports and empowers families by identifying their strengths and needs, and by teaching problem solving skills.

Services are aimed at preventing further incidents of behavioral, emotional or social disturbance that may lead to out-of-home placement. We implement evidence-based practices with the family as a means to improve the child or youth’s behavior and provide structure and routine to the home environment.
