Family Counseling, LLC
Our Philosophy Involves:
Respect: All interaction is based upon thoughtful consideration for basic human rights and dignity.
Diversity: Respect for the diverse nature of families is paramount. Support is given without regard for gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, culture, and financial status.
Hope: All services provided are intended to instill hope. Hope is central to the healing process. Service plans are developed and maintained in accordance with the belief that individuals and families will make progress in their goals of healing.
Relationships: Healing occurs within the context of relationships. Individuals and families are able to benefit from services when they are provided with nonjudgmental, genuine, support and empathy.
Ecology: Family and community are central to life experience. Each individual involved in treatment is part of a larger community with established institutions and agencies designated to support and assist these youth as they move toward success. All services are provided in conjunction with this support when possible.
Individualized Treatment: Interventions will be provided based on the individual and collective strengths and needs of each individual or youth and family. Treatment necessary for each client will be determined based on initial and ongoing assessment throughout treatment.
Collaboration: Collaboration among treatment providers, families, schools, social services, courts, etc., can enhance treatment and better promote individual and community safety and wellbeing as it allows people to be connected to family, friends, and community life. When these efforts are made, emotional health can be long lasting.
Community Education: Educating schools, recreational organizations, faith communities, youth, first responders, courts, social service agencies, mental health providers, doctors, and any other providers of services to individuals and families about dynamics of trauma and emotional health is an important step toward achieving outcomes that will provide for long-term positive change.
Healing: Healing is the ability to embrace and celebrate life through attention to physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs. Service provision is guided by the belief that individuals and families can heal from the pain that influenced the need for services. Healing is the basis for leading productive and fulfilling lives by learning to manage pain in ways that do not cause harm to self or others.
Successful Outcomes: We base all services on extensive research. Desired outcomes are established for all services and continual assessment guides progress towards such goals. Parkside Family Counseling, LLC is responsible for providing highly effective services most suitable for meeting the unique needs of each family for whom services are provided.
Efficiency: All services are designed and delivered in the most cost-efficient manner. Efficiency is measured through the relationship of cost to outcomes. Successful outcomes are achieved through efficient utilization of resources.
