Any person receiving Children’s Mental Health services will complete an initial behavioral health assessment. During this time a Master’s level therapist will gather information about your child and family’s strengths, challenges and needs. The assessment will include many questions about your child, your family and your current situation so that we can begin to understand what behaviors are troubling. This process ends with a discussion about what new skills and new behaviors the family would like to learn and what services could be helpful in achieving those goals.
We also offer psychiatric services which can include testing and medical consultation and medication management.
For individuals ages 18 years and older, who experience mental, emotional, or addiction disorders, or any combination of these, we can provide clinical and case management services.
Individual, Family, and Group Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy involves participating in individual, family or group sessions with a mental health therapist. Psychotherapy techniques and interventions vary depending on the therapist and the goals you identify. While each therapist in our program has a different approach, we all strive to provide services that are individualized, culturally sensitive, respectful, responsive to family-identified needs, and based on family strengths.
All therapists employed in our program hold a Master’s degree in a mental health profession such as Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, or Social Work. Each therapist is licensed or obtaining licensure in the State of Alaska. You are also welcome to ask specific questions about your therapist’s background and experience.
