Counseling Services

The Counseling Program at CCFI specializes in working with infants and their caregivers and children and teens, ages 0-17. Our therapeutic philosophy is grounded in the fact that children need healthy relationships with adults to maximize their potential. CCFI’s counseling team addresses trauma and behavioral issues with children and teens and engages parents in support and education services so that they are better equipped to cope with situations at home.  

The majority of children we serve come from foster, adoptive or guardianship families or families who are receiving other services from CCFI. When capacity is limited, priority is given to children with urgent need and infants and young children, ages 0-6.

Our services address the destructive results of significant relational trauma such as:

  • Difficulty attaching and bonding
  • Struggling to keep stable relationships with family and friends
  • Anxiety, fear and avoidance
  • Intense, frequent tantrums
  • Unpredictable crying or outbursts of anger
  • Withdrawal from family and friends
  • Sleep disruption
  • Behavior that looks like hyper-activity
  • Inability to calm or stay calm
  • Problems at school or daycare

The child will likely be referred elsewhere for services if the primary issue is related to substance abuse, eating disorders, sexual abuse, criminal behavior, developmental disability (such as autism) or if the child requires psychotropic medication. Exceptions to these criteria may be considered if there is reason to believe that CCFI is uniquely qualified to provide the services.

Available Services & Therapy Models 

Our counseling team uses a variety of child and family friendly models to design family specific interventions.  We are proud to use the Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) and Theraplay® models as well as methods from Art Therapy, Movement Therapy, Play Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, among others.       

Services include therapeutic play and other individual sessions with children and youth, family therapy sessions, family therapy group and children’s therapy groups.

 

How to Enroll

Supervised Visits and Exchanges

Supervised visit and exchange services provide both children and parents with a safe, conflict-free environment to establish and build positive parent-child interactions and to promote healthy family functioning. Many children do not have the opportunity to have healthy and consistent relationships with their parent(s) due to long-time lapses in contact, parental issues and/or safety issues.  With professional support at a neutral location, a child’s trauma is reduced and parents are less apt to engage in destructive or harmful behaviors in front of their children.

Supervised exchanges reduce contact between parents and allow a child’s transition between homes to be in a conflict-free atmosphere.  Our goal is to make a third party facilitator of exchanges unnecessary by supporting the entire family.  

NOTE: Supervised visits and exchanges are only available if both parties have taken the Children in the Middle (CIM) class and are court ordered to CCFI.  


Mediation

In mediation, a neutral professional assists family members in discussing and resolving family and parenting issues. Parents use the communication and parenting skills they will have learned in taking the “Children in the Middle” class in order to develop unique parenting plans that meet the needs of their children. The “Children in the Middle” program must be complete in order to be eligible. Services are based on a sliding scale fee.

NOTE: This service is only available if you are participating in our supervised visitation/exchange program and are court ordered to CCFI. 


For more information regarding any of our divorce and co-parenting services, please contact Joshua L. Wolfe at 405-364-1420 or jwolfe@ccfinorman.org.


Divorce and Co-Parenting Services are partially funded by:
