What are we doing?
Each staff member has taken one or more classes on Trauma Informed Care.
We utilize a Trauma Aware Intake form for each client.
We communicate client needs to staff members so your visit needs are consistent.
Clear communication and plans are utilized for a seamless client session.
Music changes, scent avoidance and other accommodations, within our means, will take place to ensure a safe, secure and companionate environment.
These are just a few services we have knowledge about and/or experience with. There are many other facilities and resources available.
Please seek medical attention immediately if you or someone you know is experiencing a manic moment or fear of self harm.
