Who We Serve
Sessions that include the family are often part of the treatment plan for helping individual clients including children, teens, and adults. Our goal is to help create cohesion within the family and to help build a strong and supportive family unit. This is done by ensuring that each member feels included, respected, and loved by other members of their family.
Adventure Based Counseling (ABC) involves activities for the entire family or certain family members such as a parent and child. After an initial consultation session, a treatment plan will be designed utilizing activities ranging from therapeutic games to outdoor adventures such as hiking, biking or paddle sports. ABC builds trust and cooperation between family members while improving skills in communication, conflict resolution, and decision-making.
This activity is not covered by insurance.

Mindfulness is being more attentive and aware of the present moment, which is a simple task, but can be difficult to attain and sustain. Research continues to show that being more mindful promotes physical and mental well-being.
This eight-week group offers a safe and supportive learning environment to cultivate mindfulness skills. The art and science of mindfulness is highlighted by learning the history and biological affects while practicing the skill through breathing, the five senses and guided imagery. By sharing successes and challenges, group members foster ongoing motivation and the sense of acceptance and belonging. Some of the benefits are a reduction in stress, anxiety and depression and an improvement in attention, clarity and physical health.
This group will meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Maximum of 8 members.
