Cognitive Forensic Alliance, PLLC recognize that adulthood is an enormous responsibility and the transition into this part of our lives can be extremely stressful. In working with adolescents we take a multi-faceted approach to our work with adolescents. This approach factors in social support systems, unique experiences and personality, development, and neurobiology in order to develop a treatment plan. Involvement from caregivers provides adolescents the largest advantage, as they work through all the complex challenges presented in this stage of life and therefore we want to include the caregivers as much as possible. Change is challenging, on those directly and indirectly impacted, however you don't have to do it alone.
Couples and Family Counseling
All counseling is a collaboration between a counselor and the client. Cognitive Forensic Alliance believes that together we are able to potentially address a variety of challenges which include but are not limited to: separation, co-parenting, single parenting, parenting concerns, substance abuse, coping with violence, rebuilding relationships following traumatic events, and meeting the difficulties of everyday changes and challenges as a family.
