Kinship Center offers specialty mental health and counseling services to children and families touched by adoption, foster care, relative caregiving, or legal guardianship. Kinship Center's clinics include a variety of family-based services, including traditional mental health therapies for youth and their families, counseling for adult adoptees, parents, and siblings and birth families. Kinship Center is particularly noted for its in-depth education and support for parents and caregivers. Some common problems that are addressed at the clinics include adjustment to adoption or other forms of permanent placement, adjustment to being raised by relatives, attachment issues, depression and grief, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, behavioral difficulties, anger management and family conflict. The clinics are staffed by experienced therapists who provide individual, family, and group counseling to children 0-21 years of age and their families. Other services available are psychological testing, medication support, in-home therapeutic behavioral services, occupational therapy evaluations, and parent education. The staff has knowledge of infant, child, and adolescent mental health that is utilized in a family strengths-based approach.
