Roots is an interdisciplinary specialty clinic which provides “bottom-up” therapy and treatment. We believe that in order to find healing and maximize growth and development, the root of any issue must be identified and resolved – while many clinics and treatment approaches can offer “band-aid” therapy by treating symptoms and what is evident on the surface, we believe that getting to the core issue is what brings about lasting healing and change.
Addressing Core Issues
Anxiety, behavioral outbursts, communication challenges, difficulties with sleep, impulsivity, poor social engagement – these are all often symptoms of a deeper core issue (trauma, sensory system needs, speech delay, emotional dysregulation, autism, attachment issues). We will work with you, your child, or your family to meet the underlying need. You will find that symptoms will naturally alleviate when the core issues are addressed and unmet needs are recognized and satisfied.
Building A Firm Foundation
When a tree is provided a firm foundation with deeply planted roots, we see its leaves and flowers naturally blossom. Likewise, when a person is afforded a secure base from which to grow and develop, we see their potential flourish. A person can choose to try to mend and repair broken or damaged flowers and fruits on a tree, can even paint the leaves to make them appear healthy and whole, or he can nourish and water the roots and watch the tree mature and thrive!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do we need a referral or diagnosis to begin therapy?
Do you work with children and adults?
Yes! We provide treatment to individuals, couples, and families! We see people of all ages for treatment, so please inquire if you are interested in services, or have questions about your specific circumstances and needs. We would love to work with you.
At what age can my child start therapy?
Any age! We are passionate about early childhood intervention and meeting needs before they develop into bigger issues – we see many toddlers, parent-infant dyads, and young kiddos for treatment, and would be more than happy to work with your child as well! Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have regarding early childhood intervention.
Do you work with insurance?
Roots is committed to providing each patient with high-quality personalized care that isn’t limited by insurance constraints, which is why our services are self-pay only. Patients do have the option to use HSA funds to cover the cost of treatment, or request treatment notes or invoices to submit charges to their insurance company for reimbursement according to policy guidelines.
Do you offer in-person or virtual services?
Both! We offer in-person outpatient, home-based, and community-based services and supports, as well as some virtual therapy services. We will work with you in determining the best course of action for your or your child’s treatment based on your level of health and comfort and treatment needs and goals to ensure that your family’s needs are met in the best way possible.
How long does treatment last?
This is something that you and your provider will determine together. As needs are different for everyone, it can be hard to put a specific timeframe to how long treatment will last for any particular individual. However, we typically re-assess needs, progress, growth, and ongoing goals every 12 sessions to determine appropriate next steps in treatment.
