AHM is proud to offer mental health clinical services to youth and their families. These services are designed to support families in transition, crisis, or normal developmental processes.

Family therapy is available to parents, couples and their family members to nurture change and development within the entire family system.  Family therapy is offered in conjunction with individual therapy.  Individual therapy is available for children & adolescents, to address emotional and/or behavioral problems. Sessions are offered once or multiple times per week based on the level or intensity required to stabilize and assist the person to improve their overall quality of life.

Our mental health assessments are the initial contacts with our clients. This sets the stage for continued services and determines recommended course of treatment. Each case is treated differently as no two individuals are the same.

  • Anxiety
  • Reaching your potential
