Hours of Operation
Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. when school is in session. We are open for limited hours during school holidays and vacations, and are closed during summer break.
Scope of Services
Services are typically short-term, however there is no specific number of sessions that a student is allowed. We operate from a student-centered perspective, in which the student takes an active role in their treatment. Our therapeutic services are primarily strength-based and solution focused, with emphasis on behavior based problem solving.
Some students experience needs outside the scope of our services, for example: conditions requiring close coordination with psychiatrists or other providers; conditions with persistent symptoms of risk to personal safety; and conditions requiring access to therapists outside of normal business hours. These students are encouraged to consult with us for an assessment of their symptoms (diagnostic evaluation), and assistance with a referral to community mental health providers.
We are staffed by mental health professionals, psychologists and licensed clinical social workers as well as pre-doctoral interns.
