Multisystemic Therapy is family and community based treatment that has been proven effective for youth and families who are struggling with difficult situations. A licensed therapist will work intensely with you and your child in your own home, in your child’s school, with probation officers, and anyone else in the community that your child interacts with. Our goal is to help you effectively manage your child’s behavior to enable your child to succeed and help your family return to a state of functioning that is acceptable to you.

MST is a time-limited service ranging from 3-5 months. Sessions are held several times a week to enable us to assist your family quickly with hands-on, practical interventions.

Our therapists are available 24/7 to assist families in resolving issues before they become a crisis. Parents are the most powerful resource available to youth and your involvement in the family therapy process is vital! Please let us offer this incredible service to you and your child!
