Counselors assist youth and families with day-to-day troubles and serious concerns with the infusion of a solution-focused, strengths-based approach that is guided by the clients themselves and always considers the family's strengths. Individual and family counseling is provided to school-aged youth (any age/grade level) identified with "at risk" concerns, including imminent risk of school drop-out. All counselors are NYS Licensed Social Workers who have extensive training and experience in family treatment and Child and Adolescent Trauma. Counselors work closely with school personnel regarding school-related concerns and in strengthening the family-school connection.
