Emotional Therapy is Built into Every Activity, Every Minute of the Day
Students participate in weekly individual therapy. Frequency of therapy sessions can vary from student to student. Some of our girls receive individual therapy in one sitting or a course of therapy may occur over multiple short sessions during the week. At Elk Mountain, we utilize highly effective group therapy twice a week, as well as specialty groups such as adoption and addiction. We go beyond just treating the girls who attend, and provide family therapy as well. Family therapy occurs during family visits and on the phone.
Our staff has over 60 years of combined experience in therapy with adolescents. We specialize in dialectic behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, EMDR, reality therapy and trauma therapy.

We also use art therapy to help our student learn to communicate thoughts and deep emotion without the use of words.
Families are encouraged to come and visit after an appropriate number of family therapy phone calls. When you do visit, one of our therapists will participate in family therapy with you and your daughter. Each visit has a set of behavioral goals your student works on during your time together.
