Our providers are highly collaborative and work with each individual client and their treatment team (if needed) to assess symptoms and then create and implement an individualized plan toward recovery and health. This may involve varying levels of care from individual therapy, to intensive outpatient programs, to a combination of services designed to best address the needs of the client.

Intensive Outpatient Programs

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are a group-based, more intensive form of treatment for those experiencing moderate to severe mental health symptoms. An IOP level of care is designed to meet the needs of individuals who need more support than weekly therapy sessions but are not in need of inpatient care. Participants will receive psychoeducation and skills teaching including: mindfulness, crisis management, cognitive challenging (CBT), energy regulation strategies, boundaries, communication and emotional expression or containment skills. In addition, each program has a daily support/process group as well as additional groups addressing the role of nutrition, spirituality and movement in the healing process.
