Young Man in Therapy

"Enhanced family therapy strengthens bonds, fosters communication, and empowers families to navigate challenges together with resilience and understanding."


  • You will meet with a licensed, master’s level therapist.

  • A diagnostic and family assessment will be done to help with the focus of treatment.
  • A treatment plan will be developed with the family.
  • The therapist will schedule individual and joint sessions. It is crucial to remember that children who have endured trauma or abuse often exhibit behaviors similar to those of children with autism, ADHD, or depression. The therapist facilitates opportunities for each family member to take steps toward reunification. This process can be quick or long and will look different for every family.This may include, but is not limited to, immediate family, attorneys, and other family supports. Not all appointments will include the child identified as the patient.
  • When appropriate, the clinician will make a referral to a psychiatrist and will work with the psychiatrist.
  • When there are concerns about a patient’s safety, the clinician will work with the patient and family to develop a safety plan.
  • Average length of treatment varies but could be up to 3 months or longer.
  • Successful therapy often requires an additional layer of support in addition to court-ordered treatment because there are no standard therapeutic protocols. That means steps are needed to do everything you can to restore your parent-child relationship. Your counselor will help, but the more you understand how alienation works, how narcissism works, how to parent and relate to an alienated child, how to manage your relationship with your former partner or spouse, etc., the more successful reunification will be.
