Youth Service Bureau

Family Innovations provides a licensed mental health therapist offering individualized, clinical-level services for students who may be struggling with personal or family concerns, anxiety, mental health, anger, worry, behavior problems, or trauma. The therapist will see students during the school day so no transportation or scheduling outside of the school day is needed. This service is billed directly through the student's insurance.  For more information, please contact the student's school counselor. 

A counselor from Youth Service Bureau  is available on Tuesdays for chemical health counseling.
