therapeutic family services

Our therapists work with children of all ages and their caregivers to address emotional and behavioral difficulties resulting from trauma. We help families of all types (adoptive, foster, and biological) to connect, heal, and thrive together! We also provide Therapeutic Day Camps and Parenting Workshops throughout the year.

Childhood trauma makes a lasting impact on the brain, hindering a child’s ability to learn, grow, and form healthy attachments with others. Our therapists’ approach is based on the principles of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®), a holistic, attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. Additional therapeutic interventions like mindfulness, Theraplay, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) may also be integrated into treatment.

Caregivers are actively engaged in each therapy session. Both caregivers and children learn the TBRI® principles and skills so they can use them at home and enjoy lasing, positive change in their relationships.

“Naturally, we want to lead our children to security and healing, but too often we discover that we do not know the way there for ourselves. The undeniable reality is that, just as with our children from hard places, our past affects our future, but the good news for us and our children is that the past does not determine our future. We must never forget that we are loved by God who is capable and intent on putting the broken pieces of our lives back together and bringing healing to our deepest wounds.” Dr. Karyn Purvis, Empowered to Connect
