In-HomeTherapy Services

Mental health assessments and interventions for young children are sometimes best provided in the child’s home or school setting. SecurePath is a comprehensive mental health service for young children in Wake County provided at the child’s home or preschool. Our staff offers mental health assessments, interventions, and therapy for children ages birth to five and their parents who need help with their child’s social, emotional, or developmental challenges. Clinicians focus on addressing behavioral concerns and strengthening the parent-child relationship. Early intervention services can also be a valuable resource in helping pre-school children to become Kindergarten-ready.

SecurePath Clinicians Can Help With:

  • Behavior and discipline challenges
  • Impulsivity, inattention, and aggression
  • Fears, anxieties, and behavior rituals
  • Mood problems
  • Social isolation and peer conflicts
  • Reactions to trauma and loss
  • Complications of adoption
  • Arrangements and reactions to divorce
  • Parenting questions, including sleep and toilet training issues
  • Preparing pre-school children to enter Kindergarten ready to learn

No Cost to Families

SecurePath therapy services are provided at no cost to families through the generous support of Wake County Smart Start.

Services are provided in English and Spanish.
