Haven Youth and Family Services

Haven promotes mental health and community wellness to support people leading their best lives.

Individual, Group, Family, & Crisis

Individual Counseling

Individual therapy at Haven is about self exploration through empathy, compassion, acceptance, and accountability. Our counselors work with you to decide how to help you find relief from your biggest feelings.

We can help you:

  • Find relief from depression, anxiety, and panic  

  • Develop healthier relationships (yes, even with your parents)

  • Manage process and substance addiction

  • Navigate life transitions

  • Process, cope with and heal from traumatic experiences

Group Counseling

Groups are where things get messy, and fun, and connections are formed! 

Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we are unable to offer groups at this time. Please check back for upcoming virtual group offerings!

Family Counseling

Family/Relationship Counseling at Haven is about strengthening connection, and improving communication.  Our counselors will work with you to foster a sense of acceptance, understanding, and respect so you can find ways to enjoy each other again. 

We can help you: 

  • Work through family conflict and crisis

  • Navigate divorce or loss within the family

  • Support a family member struggling with self-harm, disordered eating, substance overuse

  • Navigate intimate partnership challenges

  • Manage life-stage transitions

Crisis Counseling
Haven provides same day crisis assessments for individuals experiencing stronger symptoms and bigger feelings. We can help you get started in counseling or link you to a higher level of care. Crisis appointments are available M-F 9:00am-5:00pm. If you have a need after hours, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
