Parkside Family Counseling, LLC is a small agency serving youth and families in Lenawee County, Michigan. Parkside was established in 1997 when the need arose for community-based services for youth involved with the juvenile justice system. Currently Parkside offers home, school and office based therapeutic services to adults, adolescents and children. We serve families with teens or children who have behavioral and emotional problems or have experienced some type of trauma. In addition to the owner/lead clinician, Parkside has an office manager, eight clinicians and three other service providers meeting the needs of families through our programs.

Access to services can be made through self referral or referral by an agency representative from DHS or Lenawee County Probate Court, Juvenile Division or other agencies contracting with Parkside. Fees are based on services provided. Limited insurance coverage is accepted. A sliding fee scale is available based on income and individual circumstances.

Collaboration with other child serving agencies is always a part of the work we do with families at Parkside. Many of the youth we serve are receiving services through various public and private agencies due to complicating life situations. Good communication and cooperative delivery of services is paramount to the process of helping families. Many of youth we serve are involved in the juvenile justice system through Lenawee County Probate Court, the Department of Human Services (DHS) and some are involved with Lenawee Community Mental Health Authority or other agencies providing mental health services.

Parkside also collaborates in Lenawee County with county-wide efforts such as the Anti-bullying Taskforce, Lenawee Great Start, Strong Families Safe Children Review Committee, Systems of Care Taskforce, and other community efforts over the years.
