Outpatient Mental Health

Center for Family Development (CFD) provides mental health therapy for individuals and families faced with challenges, including but not limited to:

  • child, adolescent and family adjustment
  • difficulty in relationships
  • trauma history
  • life stage changes
  • grief and loss

CFD therapists also work with problems such as:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • impulse control
  • anger management
  • eating disorders and body image
  • low self-esteem
  • difficulty in school
  • sexual behavior problems

Individuals may receive individual, family and/or group therapy. An intake therapist assesses the individual's needs and CFD assigns an appropriate therapist. Individuals typically see therapists weekly or biweekly in our office or, when necessary, in the community. Therapists may refer active clients to CFD's psychiatric department for medication management.

In coordination with therapy at CFD, support services are provided in community settings. Behavioral Support Specialists teach life skills and coping strategies to children and adolescents with severe emotional and behavioral issues. Peer Support Specialists provide emotional support to individuals and families; together, they can informally discuss issues, increase coping skills, identify strengths and talents and envision recovery.
