The In-Home Counseling program provides intensive counseling services to families in the comfort of their own home. These families typically have children between the ages of 5 and 21 who are showing behavioral or emotional concerns.
Families may be referred by professionals such as social workers or teachers, or families themselves may request to participate in the program.
Since we believe that all families have the ability to grow and overcome difficulties, we recognize each family’s individual strengths and work with them as partners to help them achieve their goals.
Commonly addressed issues include:
- Anger Management
- Anxiety and Depression
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse
- Child Discipline Techniques
- Couples Conflicts
- Delinquent behaviors such as violence or gang activity
- Grief and Loss
- School Attendance
- Parent/Child Conflicts
Goals of In-Home Treatment include:
- Improving parent/child interaction and communication
- Supporting parents to be in charge
- Helping parents establish rules, rewards and consequences and learn effective discipline techniques
- Supporting families in a collaborative manner so families can remain together in a healthy way
Counseling sessions may include whatever combination of members the family feels is important to achieve their goals. The length of treatment varies depending on the family’s unique needs. We also encourage collaboration with any other professionals that impact the family’s life to help ensure ongoing success in achieving their goals.
Admission criteria may vary to some degree depending on the source of funding and will be discussed with the contact person prior to admission. In-Home Counseling services are funded through medical assistance, private insurance or other resources. Medical Assistance and private insurance have specific requirements for involvement with the program. Please call us to determine your family’s eligibility.
