Youth-Focused Family Counseling

Addressing concerns early to prevent them from growing larger in the future.

Counseling services are intended to help young people who are struggling with challenges in their lives.

Parents and caregivers are also involved in counseling sessions and receive support and encouragement along the way.

During sessions youth and families will develop strategies to resolve immediate problems and prevent future ones. To do this, we build on individual and family strengths and help coordinate services with others.

We are now offering telehealth services in addition to in-person services to better meet the needs of our clients.

  • Our therapy staff are all mental health professionals.
  • Our clients range from 4 – 25 years of age.
  • Our services are affordable and confidential.
  • YSB accepts most insurance. We are happy to help determine your coverage.
  • We have a sliding fee scale available and can accept many insurance policies.
  • We strive not to deny service due to a family’s financial situation. Please contact our offices if you have any questions.
