Westside Wellness Overview

Westside’s Wellness staff offers specialty mental health and counseling services to children and families. Services are provided by licensed clinical professional counselors in select Westside clinics. Our counselors have knowledge of child and adolescent mental health and understand the complexities of family dynamics. They are trained using evidence-based practices that lead to optimal clinical outcomes. They also treat families and kids like people – respecting preferences and comfort levels, building rapport before asking too much, and making a sincere effort to get to know them. The Westside Wellness program works alongside our other therapy disciplines – Behavioral (ABA), Occupational, Speech, Physical, and Feeding Therapy. All such services happen in the same location. This collaboration in providing comprehensive support to families and kids is what makes our model effective. All of this happens with the special touch of the Westside Way.

What Getting Started Looks Like

The experience begins with a consultation between the parents of the child and the therapist. The goal is simple: to listen and understand needs. This informs the therapists on whether or not therapy will be effective. If it is agreed that therapy will be beneficial, this meeting becomes the starting point for developing an individualized treatment plan.
