Cherry Creek Family Services’ mission is to provide direct services to parents and family members of young, adolescent and adult children who are struggling with mental health challenges.  It is our hope that by providing, support, education and skill development programming we can have a positive impact and greatly enhance the opportunities for successful outcomes for all family members.

Our Proven Integrative Approach

Through years of providing direct services to our clients it has become clear to us, and proven out in evidence-based research, that outcomes for both clients, parents and immediate family members are greatly improved when all parties are actively involved in the therapeutic process.  With this in mind, Cherry Creek Family Services encourages clients and family members to jointly participate in the therapeutic process. We work closely with parents, providing support through individual, couples, and family counseling during stressful times. Parents and family members are encouraged to attend psycho-educational group classes to facilitate communication among family members and to foster a better understanding of how they can support and promote their children’s social-emotional well-being while on their journey towards health and personal growth.

In the same vein, we often serve in the role of advocate, interfacing with schools and employers to ensure the client is receiving appropriate academic, behavioral, and social-emotional support services along with ongoing accommodations and adjustments. It is through the above-outlined systems approach, that Cherry Creek Family Services, endeavors to create a coordinated strategy to support the health and well-being of our clients and their families.

Welcome the present moment as if you had invited it. It is all we ever have so we might as well work with it. Rather than struggling against it, we might as well make it a friend and a teacher rather than an enemy.
