Founder and director Matthew Russo has a certification in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI). By applying the principles learned in this evidence-based model, we create safe and nurturing environments that promote growth, development, and self-regulation. It also provides the skills to effectively de-escalate a potential crisis, prevent a crisis from occurring, safely and therapeutically manage a crisis and support clients to improve their own coping strategies in stressful and confronting situations. Our clients can be assured that our professional support services are relationship-based, culturally inclusive, support diversity and are designed to enhance healing, development, and wellbeing.
