Healing Center @ Hosford: The Healing Center is a specialty clinic that provides psychological services to Black-Identifying clients of all ages. In addition to general stressors and life issues, the Healing Center acknowledges the effects of racial trauma, marginalization, and injustice.

Trauma, Adversity, Resilience, and Prevention Clinic (TARP): Adverse and traumatic experiences influence our physical, mental, and emotional health and shape our neurobiology. As the world faces increasing stress and uncertainty, TARP offers a trauma-informed approach to take into account clients’ experiences, contexts, and cultures, and shift the focus from ‘what is wrong with you?’ to ‘what happened to you?’ Our trauma program focuses on building strengths and resilience, changing patterns and intergenerational cycles, and identifying pathways for healing and recovery.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy Clinic (PCIT): PCIT is an evidence-based treatment backed by over 30 years of research for children ages 2 to 7 who have challenging behaviors. PCIT teaches parents and other caregivers how to enhance their relationship with their child, increase positive behaviors in children, and reduce problem behaviors in home, school, and public places. PCIT therapists work with the caregiver and child together to improve child behavior and reducing parenting stress. PCIT is available for a sliding scale fee.
