Our mental health services promote successful functioning at home, at school and in the community.
We work in partnership with parents and guardians to provide children and adolescents with high quality, comprehensive services in a safe, therapeutic environment. Our team of licensed mental health professionals are specially trained to help process issues related to relaitonships, communication, behavior, and other mental health topics.
Our Methods and Standards
JHCCC therapists are trained in a variety of nationally-renowned therapies approved by the National Alliance on Mental Health.
Depending on a family’s situation and a child’s path to mental wellness, a therapist may suggest one of the following:
- Individual and family counseling
- Group counseling: Treatment in a group setting for peers who share similar issues.
- Parental support: Consultation with a professional about your child’s treatment and other family concerns.
- Home-based services
- School-based services (both individual and group therapy in cooperation with TCSD)
- Social Skills Development: Participatory activities help your child or teen learn safe, age-appropriate ways to relate to peers, manage feelings, and build self-confidence.
- Play therapy: using play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development
- Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT): A short-term, structured, problem-focused approach to the treatment of conduct problems, associations with antisocial peers, early drug use and the accompanying maladaptive family interactions (relations).
