We reach out to you, where you are
We are here to support you and your child/children (ages 3-18) in a safe and interactive environment. Licensed children’s therapists provide trauma-focused counseling in our counseling offices and school-based programs throughout the River Region. It’s important to know that trauma does not always display the same way in children as it does in adults. Should you notice any of the following in your child, please give us a call to discuss your child and determine the best possible options for help.
Possible Signs of Trauma:
- Loss of self confidence
- Avoidance of people or places that remind them of a traumatic event
- Decrease in school performance
- Sexual behaviors or knowledge that is inappropriate for the child’s age
- Inappropriate sexual contact with other children
- Social withdrawal or extreme attention seeking behaviors
- Bed wetting in children previously potty trained
- Abnormal fears
- Always watchful as if preparing for something bad to happen

All current clients, both residential and non-residential, are also afforded the opportunity to work with our Staff Attorney.

Our Staff Attorney can provide clients representation in a variety of civil matters including, but not limited to, subpoena response, protection from abuse, custody, child support, divorce, eviction, debt collection, public benefits, and health care matters – matters which stem from, or are caused by, the victimization incurred.
