Mental Health Services

We offer supportive counseling to adults, children, and families in any phase of life to better handle their challenges. We help individuals and families deal effectively with mental illness and support recovery.

Adult Mental Health: Our holistic approach helps adults build on individual strengths and capacity for change, and live productively and independently in the community. When needed, we provide psychiatric evaluation and medication monitoring to keep care on track. Specialized support is available for veterans and domestic violence survivors.

Children and Adolescent Mental Health: We help kids be kids with the normal ups and downs of growing up. Our services help children and adolescents with emotional difficulties recover, strengthen family relationships, and succeed in school. We stabilize crisis situations and help keep children out of hospitals and other restrictive treatment environments.

Senior Counseling: Our services are designed to help families meet the challenges and opportunities of later years. We offer counseling, in-home respite, adult protective services, and support for caregivers, homeowners, and grandparents raising grandchildren.
