Off-Site Counseling Services

Off-site counseling services are available for high-risk children and adolescents with Medicaid Insurance located in Frederick, Washington, and Montgomery Counties. Licensed counselors and social workers provide intensive individual and family therapy in clients’ homes and schools. Unfortunately, private insurances do not cover off-site treatment, but clients with private insurance can be seen in the clinic by appointment. Frequency of off-site therapy sessions is based upon the individual needs of the client and their family; however, clients may be seen multiple times per week if need be.

Providing counseling services in schools allows the therapists to develop ongoing and regular communication with school staff, have access to grades and attendance records, and gives them the ability to attend Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, when appropriate, in order to provide a holistic level of care. Therapists work with school staff to find an appropriate time to meet with clients that will not interfere with their academics and does not require the child to leave school to attend an appointment at a clinic.

Off-site counseling services are ideal for families with transportation issues or multiple children in the home, where taking a child to the clinic weekly for therapy would not be feasible and would impact the effectiveness of treatment.

Therapists may also attend Family Involvement Meetings at the Department of Social Services, or other meetings with community organizations that clients may be involved in to support and advocate for their clients’ needs.
