Counseling designed to strengthen and empower individuals in their journey to wholeness and wellness. In addition to general counseling for individuals, couples, and families, our treatment modalities include Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy (for young children), and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.
Child-centered play therapy for children as young as two years old who have witnessed or experienced trauma are given the tools to communicate their inner experiences using toys and play.
PCIT (Parent-Child Interaction Therapy)
PCIT is an evidence-based treatment approach for parents of young children (ages 2-7) who exhibit challenging behaviors. PCIT is conducted through coaching sessions during which a parent and child are together in a playroom while a specially-trained therapist observes through a one-way mirror. Using a wireless earpiece, the therapist provides in-the-moment coaching for the parent as he/she interacts with the child. PCIT duration is typically 16-20 weeks, with progress measured weekly. For more information about PCIT, visit PCIT.org.
Trauma-focused Group Therapy
Our group therapy for women and children provides a trauma-focused approach to healing. The survivors group for mothers and children is a closed group that includes both English and Spanish sessions for adult women and age-appropriate groups for children, all led by experienced therapists. This therapy is appropriate for women who have experienced violence, have left an abusive relationship, and whose children are recovering from witnessing violence. The support group for women only is an open group available to all women currently experiencing or who have experienced intimate partner violence.
Thanks to funding through the Tennessee Office of Criminal Justice Programs and Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), we do not charge any fees for this therapy.
This process allows family members to be active participants in making important decisions regarding custody and visitation issues. Mediation is an informal process that allows Disputing Parties to discuss options and create a parenting plan that will be in the best interest of the children.
Cost: $300 + $50 intake fee per person.
Income-based financial assistance is available.
Domestic Violence Assessment Center (DVAC)
