Child Focus provides crisis intervention in the office to children, adolescents and families when a child is experiencing high levels of stress and is considered to be at risk of harm to self or others. Crisis resolution can be achieved through brief, focal psychotherapy. The crisis therapist will perform a risk assessment and will work with the family to develop a safety plan. Clients in crisis are seen face-to-face within 24 business hours, but are often seen the same day. A therapist is available by phone 24/ 7. Requests for a crisis appointment can be made by calling 513-752-1555.
