In-Home Therapy

At Abelard Psychotherapy & Associates our focus is the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Specializing in treating disorders of behavior, thinking and feeling, our practice provides medication management and psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults in a caring, therapeutic environment for our clients to work through life’s complexities. To most comprehensively serve our youth population at risk of needing a higher level of care, we also offer In-Home Therapy (IHT) services, which includes Therapeutic Training & Support (TT&S), to youth (age 20 and younger) and their families as an intervention measure with the goal of stabilization and keeping the youth in the home.

In-Home Therapy (IHT) connects youth and their families to a licensed clinician with attention to the family’s preferences, culture, and behavioral health support needs. IHT fosters a cohesive, therapeutic relationship to improve the youth’s functioning within the family and the community through a strength-based, proactive treatment plan. By coordinating a collaborating group of formal supports (such as, teachers, therapists, state agencies, etc.) and natural supports (such as, friends, community members, etc.), conducting family therapy, and implementing behavioral techniques and skills, IHT nurtures and improves the youth and family’s wellbeing.

Therapeutic Training & Support (TT&S) working alongside a licensed clinician, the TT&S supports the youth and family as part of the In-Home Therapy experience. TT&S focus their attention on integrating the myriad of supports – natural and formal – and creating treatment plans; while assisting the licensed clinician in ensuring both the youth & family’s needs are met.

We have the language capability of supporting English, Cape Verdean Creole, Spanish and Portuguese speaking clients!
