We treat children and adults 10 and older. We commonly engage in treatment of digital media overuse and addictions, substance abuse, mental health challenges, academic and workplace challenges, social recovery, family and interpersonal relationship problems and more.
Family therapy is a critical component of a successful treatment outcome for Digital Media overuse and addiction issues. For our clients who are 18 and younger, and live at home with their parents we require family involvement. Therapists provide support to parents as they are quite aware of parental fatigue and how it impacts the parents’ ability to provide consistent accountability and oversight as it relates to their child’s screen use. We view parents as the expert of their family and collaborate with them to discover what their strengths are as a family and the areas in need of change and improvement.
We support families to develop a family agreement which may support a digital detox period and also the healthy use of digital media in and out of the home. The family agreement is the foundation of our innovative approach, FITSC-IA ™. Our ongoing coaching in between sessions supports stability and the change that is desired.
