Our staff is trained in the contextual family systems model which addresses the particular facts of the individual's situation and history, the interpersonal dynamics in the family, the psychodynamics of each individual, and the balance of fairness and justice in the family system. Therapists are additionally trained in a variety of approaches and techniques which can be tailored to the unique needs of each client and family we serve.
