Therapy Services for Children, Youth, and Families

Sometimes childhood is interrupted by crisis—feelings and situations too big for children, teens and families to deal with on their own. Often children (especially teens) express their sadness, fear and anger through their behaviors and attitude. This “acting out” is especially challenging to caregivers. Child Saving Institute can help you and your children through this stressful time.

Child Saving Institute’s licensed therapists provide the support, skills, and knowledge necessary to move children and individuals from a place of uncertainty and hopelessness to an improved level of functioning that supports healthy family relationships and reduces the impact of traumatic life events like abuse and neglect, divorce or family violence. Child Saving Institute therapists work with children and families struggling with a variety of issues including:

  • Past trauma
  • Strained family relationships
  • Strained peer relationships
  • Attachment issues
  • Mental Health Disorders such as depression, ADHD, anxiety, and others
  • Behavioral problems such as hitting, yelling, isolating, risk-taking behaviors, and hurting themselves
  • Divorce
  • Grief and loss issues

Attachment and trauma-based therapies

Our approach includes a strong foundation in the best attachment and trauma-based therapies available, including:

  • Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
  • Play Therapy
  • Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
  • Circle of Security - Parenting (COS-P)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Adoption Competent Therapy (TAC)


  • Therapy fees are typically paid by Medicaid and Private Insurance
  • For those who meet specific qualifications, Child Saving Institute may be able to offer therapy services at a reduced rate.
