You are not alone.

A traumatic event or loss can make a child, teen, or young adult feel like they’re surrounded by darkness. Let us help light the way toward hope and healing.


We spend time continuously learning about the individual youth, their circumstances, and their progress throughout treatment.


Each child or teen receives thorough, evidenced-based treatment that is appropriately and effectively tailored to their specific needs and strengths.


We offer training and workshops in a variety of trauma- and grief-related topics for different caregiver audiences.

“After my husband died suddenly, my four children and I felt like we were drowning. Counseling from Dr. Kaplow’s team gave my kids their lives back. I learned that each of them was grieving in a different way, and the therapy was tailored to meet their individual needs. This was the best thing I ever did for my children.”
