Mental Health Services
Trained therapists offer individual, family and group therapy through Sierra’s Therapeutic Support Services (TSS) program. These therapists provide comprehensive mental health services with a specialty focus on trauma, grief and loss, attachment and permanency issues with the goal of creating a stronger family unit. Mental health services are provided to Sierra families in Sacramento, Placer and Nevada counties. Other mental health services are also provided by our post-adoption services in Colusa, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Siskiyou, Sierra, Sutter, and Yuba Counties.
Our mental health services include:
- Family Therapy and Support provides assistance regarding bonding between child and family, and offers parenting skills training.
- Individual Therapy addresses children’s issues related to grief and loss, trauma, identity and attachment. Through therapy, children are helped to overcome behaviors driven by their loss.
- Community Resources provides educational, social, and medical resources and supports.
- Consultations with staff at the child’s school helps us develop a better understanding of the child’s functioning and the opportunity to work collaboratively toward the child’s treatment plan.
- Skills Training and coaching assist in restoring, maintaining or building new skills.
In addition, monthly support groups are offered in a variety of locations. For more information regarding our Post Adoption Service please contact your local office:
