Supporting you in clearing up the mystery of your child’s behavior

Looking for the right treatment?

Are you parenting a child that you love deeply, while finding yourself confused and exasperated by their troubling behavior? 

We can partner with you to unravel the mystery.

Do you have a child that has been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, RAD, PTSD, depression or anxiety?

We can join with you to help identify and navigate your child’s needs moving forward.

Are you a foster or adoptive parent who has made space in your heart and home for a child with big emotions and chaotic behaviors?

You have come to the right place to find peace of mind.

Our primary intervention includes an initial assessment of your child’s attachment patterns. These results are used in tandem with education about attachment, trauma, and child development to create an individualized approach to therapy.
By combining a solid foundation of research in this field with decades of clinical experience, we will support you in making small changes that have a large impact on important relationships. You will come away from this experience knowing yourself and your child in a whole new way, with confidence to understand and meet your child’s needs.

Services we offer

Intensive Therapeutic Intervention  (Our primary service)

This relationship-based therapeutic intervention is intended for parents and caregivers who are raising biologic, adoptive, or foster children who display challenging or confusing behavior. This intervention blends therapy with psychoeducation about child development, trauma, attachment, and emotion regulation. It is an individualized approach based on results from a video-recorded evaluation of child relationship patterns and trauma.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

We offer outpatient therapy for the children (ages 3-18) of caregivers who are participating in our intensive therapeutic intervention. Informed by developmental needs, presenting concerns, and results from the family’s attachment assessment, this service utilizes a variety of age-appropriate approaches. The two Secure Child therapists will work together to form a cohesive approach that is best suited for addressing the specific needs of both the child/adolescent and the caregiver(s).  

Group Attachment Security Course for Caregivers

This is a practical course for caregivers whose children have experienced neglect, abuse, loss, trauma, or other developmental challenges. The course meets weekly for 10 weeks in-person or over video conference. It is designed to be psychoeducational and experiential and is not group psychotherapy. The goal is to help caregivers learn additional ways of meeting children’s emotional and relationship needs through co-regulation, soothing, and emotional partnership.


Individual Caregiver Education

This ten-hour course is for caregivers experiencing mild to moderate stress with their child and is aimed at providing education in the fundamentals of attachment processes, trauma, and child development. It can be broadly applied to the special needs of children with histories of loss, maltreatment and trauma.

Important things to know 

Many of the families we work with have a social worker or case-worker that is a liaison within the community. This person can help you request funding for our service from the local FAPT team. We do not accept insurance (including medicaid), so if you do not yet have a caseworker, we can help you figure out where to start.

Once funding is secured, we will reserve a date for you to visit our office for an initial assessment. This helps us tailor our approach to you and your child’s particular needs. A Secure Child therapist will contact you to set up a plan for meetings, which are generally twice weekly. We provide options to meet through video, in your home, or at our offices.
