Child and Family Outpatient Services
Child and Family Outpatient services provide an array of counseling and support services to families with children and youth who may have emotional and/or behavioral challenges. Compass Health services are designed to promote positive changes in behavior, help the child /youth and family learn appropriate coping skills, improve communication skills including learning to resolve conflict and manage emotions in a healthy manner.
Families seek counseling for a variety of reasons. Sometimes circumstantial life changes can bring about symptoms of depression, anxiety, and mood disorders which impede the child or youth’s everyday life. Youth may have challenges at school, with peers, or in the community. Problems related to traumatic experiences which often impact the child, youth and/or their family often initiates the request for counseling in an effort to relieve painful feelings.
Compass Health services are tailored to meet the developmental needs of the child and youth and we work to involve family members including foster parents and guardians when that will benefit the client. We offer individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy using evidenced-based practices as well as case management services to coordinate with schools, Children’s Administration, juvenile justice and other systems that are involved with the particular client.
This service is available in Snohomish, Skagit, Island, San Juan & Whatcom counties.
