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, and young adults up to age 26 to address emotional and/or behavioral problems. Session frequency can be weekly or bi-weekly, with more or less determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the level or intensity required to stabilize and assist the person to improve their overall quality of life.

During the first session, the therapist will gather detailed information about the current problem to assess your needs. From there, they will work with you to determine the best course of treatment. Each case is treated differently as no two individuals are the same.

Our therapists are skilled at working with a wide range of diagnoses and presenting problems, including: anxiety, depression, coping with daily stress, trauma, grief & loss, parenting strategies, family support, divorce/separation, ADHD, school problems, substance use, relationship issues.
