Acorn Believes In You
Therapy for all ages!
“For Children, toys are their words and play is their language.”
– Dr Gary Landreth
Children ages 18 months to 12 years benefit from a fully stocked play room and clinicians trained in play therapy. When a child wants to talk about a problem, they approach it with stories, and these stories are told with toys. Using play and play based activities, therapy engages the entire brain and assists clinicians in getting into the world of the child. Providing interventions targeted for your child becomes easier as we understand what their world is like. In complex situations, play therapists help children communicate about their lives without the negatives of talking directly to the judge.
Acorn operates in a private pay model for the utmost in confidentiality and flexibility for our clients. Our play sessions cost $160 to $200 per session with a child and our typical client can expect between 15-18 sessions.
Acorn’s clinicians work with adolescents using a combination of talk, art, activity, and family therapy. With training in complex family transitions, as well as policies and procedures to encourage active engagement with all members of the family, Acorn can help you reconnect with your teen, even as you navigate working with their anxiety, depression or self harm behaviors.
Our private pay model allows us to determine needs for family sessions, parent support, and/or individual counseling. Our adolescent sessions cost $160 to $200 per session and our typical client can expect between 15-18 sessions.
Clients live in a family, and change comes quicker and stays longer when the family is integrally involved in treatment. Acorn’s clinicians dedicate time to learning how to engage the entire family in the process of healing, even if it’s difficult. We can even help those who have lost touch with their loved ones reconnect in powerful ways.
Our family sessions range from 1 hr to 1.5 hours and cost $160 to $200 per session with a family. Our typical family can expect between 10-15 sessions. Our private pay model allows us to group different individuals and timings to fit your family’s unique needs.
