Counselor's in this program are licensed mental health professionals who have received extensive training in the EAGALA Model; which is a solution-focused, team approach that is based on the belief that families have the best ideas about solutions that work for them and their families.  Rather than the counselor instructing or directing solutions; the individual and/or their family are allowed to experiment, problem-solve, take risks, employ creativity,and find the solutions that works best for them.
