Good Neighbor provides psychiatric care for adults as well as adolescents. We also use telehealth which is an innovative tool that provides clients with access to high quality psychiatric services regardless of the barriers created by distance, unpredictable circumstances, or the limited number of qualified providers.

Services are provided by licensed and experienced clinicians who are dedicated to understanding your needs and concerns. We also have community based services.

How do parents know if Intensive In-Home counseling is appropriate for their son or daughter?
a. If your son/daughter has met with an Outpatient Therapist. However, the therapy sessions are not successful or if the child is experiencing a mental health breakdown.
b. If the child is “at risk” for out of home placement from his/her family.
c. If the child is experiencing trauma or a downward spiral in his/her mental health. (Examples….Death, Divorce, Loss of relationship)
Is there a step down program for children leaving the intensive in-home counseling program?
Yes, Outpatient Therapy and on-going professional mentoring are often the best step down program from Intensive In-Home Counseling. Moreover, Good Neighbor provides follow up phone calls with families to insure the child is receiving the support he/she needs.
