School-Based Services

"This was a great experience for me. I have recommended Family Life to many friends and family members."

For over 20 years, we have promoted family and school involvement in services. By working closely with these partners, we aim to establish clear and attainable goals for the client. These unique and individualized set of programs were created to help students address the following concerns: academic struggles, peer relations, social skills, bullying, anger management, depression, anxiety, and other behavioral concerns.


In-School Counseling Services:

Our organization has active partnerships with over 5 different school districts. By providing services during school hours, we are able to assist in addressing the concern of the child, family, and school during a chosen time period and in a safe and private environment. By working directly in the school, we are able to communicate directly with teaching staff and school personnel to address a wide range of concerns. 


Specific School Based Programs:

Mental Health Counseling:

By talking with a licensed professional, individuals are offered a safe and confidential environment to discuss emotional difficulties, life challenges, relational conflicts, or mental health concerns. We are here for you.

The American Psychological Association suggests therapy to individuals who feel that there is something internal that is causes distress and interference with an aspect of life, such as: Thinking about or coping with the issue takes at least an hour each day; The issue causes embarrassment or avoidance of others; Due to the issue, there has been a decrease in the quality of life; Work, school, or relationships have been negatively affected due to the issue; You've made changes in life or new habits to cope with issue.

Life Coaching: 

Also referred to as "Dream Team", our life coaching program aims to assist adults and adolescents in meeting their personal and professionals goals. Regardless of age, education, income, or family size, the "Dream Team" life coaching program recognizes that life circumstances and lack of direction can have lasting negative effects on our mental health and lifestyles. Developed to improve and increase self awareness, this program includes a "hands on" directive that can be utilized to assist someone in finding employment, budgeting, or meeting personal and professional goals. Program topics are shaped around concepts of goal setting, establishing productive coping skills, expressing gratitude, and reflecting on progress. 

Adolescent Substance Use Treatment:

Established in 2018, this adolescent-focused program is designed to meet the client where they are, enhance their levels of self awareness, and engage immediate and long term goals of the youth. This individualized program is designed to educate, equip, and empower the youth and family to adjust negative behaviors. Success of the program is based upon the following factors: negative drug screen results, legal and adjudicated charges, probation violations, school attendance, time spent in detention, school expulsions or suspensions, family function, participation in session, involvement in pro-social activities and process of referral. 

Restorative Practices:

One of the first programs developed, the Restorative Practices Intervention Program continues to work with victims and offenders to overcome conflicts, promote accountability, and produce positive outcomes for the community. By offering victim/offender mediation to repair the harm that has been done to the victim and/or community, the restorative practice program empowers the victim to communicate their needs, as well as holds the offender accountable for their action.  

The program is primarily completed with individuals between the age of 10 and 21 and involves meetings in which people affected by the crime are able to talk about what happened and how to repair the harm that was caused. By allowing the victim to express their grief, face the offender, and ask questions, it is able to provide the victim a sense of closure. For the offender, the restorative practices intervention allows them the opportunity to apologize and explain their actions, as well as feel better about returning to the school or community.
