Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families of the precious children and educators lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings in Newtown, CT. We encourage parents and caregivers in our community to read the following information from the National Association of School Psychologists to help them and their children deal with this national tragedy. Click here to read the tips and recommendations. Also, more extensive information regarding trauma and violence in school settings is available from SAMHSA.
At the heart of our mission is to provide uninsured and underinsured low-income Texoma families high quality psychological services to help them cope with trauma, tragedy, and turmoil in their lives.
Our hope is to help families create lasting, positive change in their lives. We achieve this through our clinical treatment services and prevention and intervention education programs. Services include individual, family, marriage and group counseling, psychological testing and parenting skills and divorce education programs.
Daily we receive calls for help from overwhelmed parents and guardians of children that have experienced and/or been exposed to domestic violence, sexual abuse, a difficult divorce, or loss of a loved one. Please take a minute to “feel” the impact of our work through the eyes of a child.
Just for a moment imagine that you are Teddy, a soft, cuddly teddy bear which 5 year old Sarah holds onto each week during her play therapy sessions at the Child & Family Guidance Center of Texoma. Sarah holds tight to Teddy for safety and security while she shares with her therapist the overwhelming grief of losing her mother in a car accident. Her tears stream down Teddy's ears and nose. He doesn't mind; he knows they are part of the healing process.
At the Child & Family Guidance Center children, like Sarah are provided a safe place to go and a caring adult to share their deepest hurts and feelings. That mix allows true healing to happen.
