Our unique model develops integrated treatment plans, uniting multiple professionals under one roof. By collecting highly skilled professionals in various fields and offering them all in one location, we greatly improve the overall quality of care of each client, while significantly reducing the stress and anxiety on the individual and family. Our approach isn’t just to make logistics more convenient, but also to promote cross-disciplinary communication in order to really understand the challenges of the client and effectively intervene. Our framework is from the lens of Interpersonal Neurobiology, where we focus on regulation and relationships, rather than behavioral compliance, and on building skills with the brain’s plasticity in mind.
