About Our Center
We have spent the last nine months doing volunteer work with other agencies to help provide services to low-income persons. We use an innovative approach which is client-centered, using elements from DBT, Solution-focused therapy, and Family system's models. We work in tandem with other agencies such as Children and Youth, and Bucks County probation department to help clients who are in "special situations" meet the requirements of their case workers.
