Counseling, Consultation and Family Therapy

Our staff offers counseling to families and children who have experienced post traumatic effects from injury and/or chronic illness. This includes the adjustment to loss during the grieving process. A particular focus on coping strategies is provided in order to insure positive outcomes and healthy development. Play therapy as well as individual counseling is provided in the inpatient and outpatient settings.

In addition to the Children's Neurosciences program support, we offer family-centered care and support throughout our facilities—age appropriate play, toys and psychosocial support are available for the entire family.
