Welcome to Autumn’s Center
When you walk into the doors at Autumn’s Center, our hope is that you feel welcome and safe. You will be greeted with a smile by one of our receptionists where you’ll check in. Then find your way to our waiting area where you’ll find interactive boards, games, and activities for children of all ages to enjoy alongside their parent or caregiver.
When they’re ready for you or your child, your provider will lead you back to one of our 4 pods, each customized to one of the four seasons.
Therapy Services | Autumn – Therapy is provided through evidence-based treatments for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, grief, loss, bullying, or a mental health condition.
Therapy/Play Therapy Services | Summer – Our therapy pod includes a Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) room and Play Therapy room. Play therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy that applies the therapeutic power of play to communicate with and treat children. This is shown to help children towards better social integration, growth, and development, emotional modulation, and trauma resolution.
Psychological Testing Services | Spring – Psychological evaluations assess a child or young adult’s level of functioning in areas of: cognitive skills, developmental progression, and emotional/behavioral functioning. The evaluation is useful for obtaining a clear diagnosis, assessing a disability, coordinating services with schools, and developing treatment plans.
Psychiatry Services | Winter – We offer child and adolescent psychiatric evaluations and medication management for our clients prescribed medication for a mental health condition.
At Autumn’s Center, we offer comprehensive services that provide our children with the support they need. In addition to the above described services, we offer Family Therapy, BHIS (Behavioral Health Intervention Services), Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Services, Juvenile Court Specialty Care Coordination, Functional Family Therapy, Trauma Therapy, and Respite Services.
