& Family Services
AT OCFS, we have several options to be better equipped to serve our population: OCFS specializes in children ages 3-13 yo.
Therapy is done in the home and/or in the school setting (including daycare). This affords our families the flexibility to receive help in a time-frame that is more conductive to their schedules. This is also an golden opportunity for the clinician to get a "real life feel" of the dynamics in the home/school that could also be contributing to any issues between the parent/child. Please review service areas listed on the contact page.
Want to meet in my office? No worries! OCFS has office hours on Mondays only. My office is located at 7701 N. Lamar Suite 328, Austin Texas.
With the advent of the internet and technological advances--its entirely possible to conduct online based counseling sessions now. This tool can be very useful in the event a traditional face to face session cannot be conducted for any reason [for ages 12 and up and for established clients only]. OCFS uses a secure and HIPPA compliant service [ZOOM]. The client can download the platform at www.zoom.com. This will enable face to face online sessions.
The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) Comprehensive Assessment is a multi-purpose tool developed to support care planning and level of care decision-making, to facilitate quality improvement initiatives, and to allow for the monitoring of outcomes of services. Child must be in foster care to qualify. CPS referrals only.
OCFS partners with various school districts in order to provide training/presentations on neurological & mental health issues. These challenges affect students in the school environment. OCFS strives to empower educators with baseline knowledge and interventions to utilize on a daily basis.
