Our Mission

To champion the provision of accessible, effective, trauma-informed assessment and treatment of children, teens, and families impacted by experiences of adversity, trauma, and mental health difficulties.

Our Vision

Children, youth, and families resilient in the face of adversity and mental health challenges.

Our Commitment

To provide timely, compassionate, and effective mental health services tailored to individual needs and strengths.

Our Approach

We use a brain-based approach to improving the problems children and youth come in with and increasing their daily functioning. All of our services are grounded in an understanding of child development and how stress and adversity can derail healthy development.

OCFR is continuing to provide services during the COVID-19 outbreak primarily via video or phone sessions.

Assessment services have resumed in-person.

Research has found that therapy conducted in this manner can still be effective and sometimes clients actually feel more comfortable being in their own home. We are confident that together we can find creative solutions to ensure the ongoing support and health of you and your family during this challenging and unusual time. You can discuss your particular situation with a clinician to decide what will work best.
