Pathways specializes in youth and family services. Our therapists pride themselves on understanding the important developmental stages of youth. Team Pathways utilizes a family system approach to help children work through any trauma or life trouble they may be facing. By using this integrated approach we give the child the best chance of support when working with children and families. We are especially mindful to use the families’ individual strengths to overcome any needs, while always being mindful of the culture of each individual family.
