          BEHAVIORAL HEALTH       


Our Mission:

Our program is designed to help people recover from overwhelming and hurtful experiences.  We provide excellent support, healthy coping skills and evidence-based care in a safe and healing environment.

Trauma is a result of overwhelming or terrifying events or situations.  A person may experience an actual event or be a witness to an accident.  The person may become overwhelmed emotionally, physically and mentally.  Exposure to traumatic events can cause feelings of terror, intense fear, helplessness and physical reactions.  These events can often produce lasting changes in your emotions, thoughts, your body's stress response and how your body feels.  The impact of traumatic stress if unaddressed can be long lasting and can have a significant impact on your emotional and physical health.  Children are more vulnerable to the effects of trauma due to their dependence on adults for their care and safety.  Children often find it hard to manage their behavior and calm themselves down.  Some people may develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which will require specialized treatment. 

What Type of Treatment Approach do we use?

All of our providers have extensive training in the recovery of traumatic experiences.  We use a variety of evidence-based and recovery techniques.

  • Psycho-education

  • Traditional Psychotherapy

  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR)

  • Mindfulness

  • Somatic Experiencing


Each person is impacted differently by their experiences with trauma.  Trauma can have a huge impact on a person's ability to control their emotions, , make decisions, and develop plans.  There are wonderful treatments available that have had great results with helping people fully recover from traumatic experiences.  The sooner you can start specialized treatment, the better chances you have at a speedier recovery.
