Therapeutic Education

Therapeutic education and counseling for people who have experienced trauma. Our clinician specializes in trauma, autism, developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and youth in foster care. Using a multi-model approach to meet the youth where they are at emotionally, cognitively, and intellectually, the clinician works youth at their own pace, in their own way.
