Therapy For Adults
Sasco River Center clinicians are highly skilled in working with adults, as well. We focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship that is the foundation for meaningful change. Together, you and your therapist will identify goals and work towards them in a safe and supportive environment.
Our clinicians help adults manage the following:
- Relationship Issues
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
The process of family therapy entails creating a safe, secure, and therapeutic environment where each family member can express his or her thoughts, feelings, and experiences without fear of criticism or judgment. This is especially true for children and teenagers, who often exhibit some form of resistance in order to avoid any signs of disapproval, disappointment, frustration, or anger from their parents.
Joint family sessions can also assist children, teens, and their parents to collaboratively make decisions about responsibilities, rules, consequences, and rewards. Family therapists typically focus on:
- Improving communication
- Establishing boundaries
- Enhancing family cohesion
The Sasco River Center provides couples therapy to address marital or relationship conflicts. Goals of therapy are discussed with the couple at the start of treatment and emphasis is placed on improving communication between partners and contributing to lasting changes.
AD/HD (ADD) Case Management
Scientific research suggests that the optimal outcomes for children with Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) occur when medical treatment is combined with other outcome-based interventions.
The Sasco River Center team works with families to develop an individualized treatment plan that may include:
- Psychotherapeutic Counseling
- Behavior Modification
- Executive Functions Coaching
- School-Based Supports

- Full Psychiatric Evaluations
