" Expressive Therapy Center is a great resource for children and the families in our community. They offer creative ways to reach children with mental health needs through support groups, grief groups and a variety of expressive therapy modalities. We have heard very positive feedback from those families we refer and have had great experiences working as a team when the need arises for children to utilize both of our agencies services. "

" Expressive Therapy Center has been a wonderful experience for our son, Paul. The center provides a warm and caring atmosphere that children of all ages can feel welcome and encouraged. It is a professional and respectful office that as a family, we are proud to be a part of. Paul loved his therapist. She has become like family. Paul adores her and her enthusiasm. She exudes excellence in her field and helps Paul reach his goals in a fun, yet rewarding way, that will help make his future brighter and more successful. We are so grateful for Expressive Therapy Center! "

" We are thrilled that we found Expressive Therapy Center. It has been a great program not only for our son but also as a support mechanism and information resource for us. Our son is 5 1/2 years old and began a social skills group 7 weeks ago. (Clinician) has done a wonderful job of integrating our son into the group, and he looks forward to the “playgroup” every Monday. Each progress report from (Clinician) keeps me informed of what’s going on so I can reinforce things at home. Our daughter has improved tremendously from her experience with your center. We are so happy with this program and recommend it for children who need to develop stronger social skills. "

" Dear Stephanie,
I wanted to write and express my appreciation to you and your staff at the Expressive Therapy Center. I have had the occasion to refer several clients to your center over the years and have been extremely satisfied with the services you have provided. I believe this starts with your prompt return of my initial phone call inquiry and continues with the caring ways you reach out to the prospective client. You offer both flexibility in scheduling and a willingness to work with clients’ insurance and within their ability to pay.
In addition, I have referred to your center because of the array of clinical services you offer. For example, I am unaware of another mental health service that offers such a wide variety of support groups. And, of course, your ability to work in multi-model fashion with children and adolescents greatly enhances the clinical services you provide. Thanks again for the great work that you do. "

" Expressive Therapy Center was a setting for my son to practice cooperation, anger/frustration management, patience, and sharing. His group served him well and it ran its course. He has techniques that he can use to help him with his issues. "
Frances T, parent
" Our son loves coming to group each week. He is always excited to see his friends and can’t wait to see what project they are going to do next. The variety of approaches in your program is a wonderful non-competitive, non-threatening basis for building social skills. He leaves each week with a smile on his face, filled with pride and a sense of accomplishment. I really appreciate the open communication with your staff in order to reinforce things at home. "
