Our services include individual, group and family counseling utilizing recognized, proven, evidence-based practice models that are offered in our agency, at schools and at our clients’ homes. Many of these services are offered for bilingual Spanish-speaking families.

We accept Medicaid, private pay, and insurance-a sliding fee scale is also available. If you have questions please call us today at 253-939-2202.
