Our passion is to help children and families. Whenever one part of the family unit is in disarray, the entire family can be affected. We can help children, adults, and families gain a balance in their lives and help them brighten their futures.

We provide counseling services to children, adults and families in and around the Houma/Thibodaux area. We have always worked in the helping field and have diverse social work backgrounds.

Child-Parent Psychotherapy is an evidence-based model for children aged 0-6 and their caregivers. The model is a relationship-based intervention that focuses on the child-parent interaction and on each partner's perception of the other. The model can also be used with some children over age 6 who have Autism or are Developmentally Delayed. The model can be used with pregnant women who are experiencing a life stressor.

Child-Parent Psychotherapy can be used in any situation in which the relationship between a young child and the parent is negatively affected by the family's difficult circumstances including:

- Parental Depression
- Parental Mental Illness
- Bereavement
- Chronic Stress
- Problems with Attachment
- Trauma

Interventions include:

- Promoting developmental progress through play, physical contact and language
- Offering Unstructured reflective developmental guidance
- Modeling appropriate protective behavior
- Interpreting feelings and actions
- Providing emotional support and empathetic communication
- Offering crisis intervention, case management, and concrete assistance with problems of living
