Walking A Dangerous Path:

Without the proper tools, guidance and resources, youths could face an increased amount of unforeseen challenges. Because of such, schools, professional services, and communities are forced to peer deeper into their lives.

We’ve taken Therapy to a whole NEW level! We understand that youths are often dealing with a greater degree of Social and Emotional challenges in these day and times. As a result of such INTENSE pressures upon them – we’ve discovered that, they are in need of much more ENGAGEMENT – rather than, “over the desk table talk”- which becomes boring and uninteresting. Finding the CORE of the problem is our focus! Through our M.E.E. (Mentoring through Engagement and Education) component, it’s amazing what you’ll discover and the therapeutic progress you can achieve when defenses are down!
