Individual & Group Counseling

Counseling is available for both men and women to address their use of power, intimidation, and violence in domestic relationships.  The goal of counseling is to educate through a structured curriculum and to teach the skills necessary to engage with partners and children in positive ways.  Counseling is intended to be short-term (usually 4-10 months), rather than crisis-oriented or for long-term/ongoing needs.

Specialized Counseling

This is appropriate for victims who have used force, for those in same-sex or LGBTQ+ relationships, or for those with special needs.

Risk of Harm Evaluations

These are formal clinical evaluations for high conflict custody cases or when required under § 5329 and 5330 of the PA Domestic Relations law.  It is not a full custody evaluation, but a specific assessment to be considered by a judge or custody evaluator.  Assessments are conducted with the utmost care and sensitivity for the impact these evaluations can have on the course of intimate partner relationships and parent-child relationships.
