Making It Better
Kids and teens find a safe space with professionals who "get it" at ASCEND.
Building internal emotional resilience at ASCEND allows children to more confidently and comfortably pursue their interests and dreams. Ideas thrive, motivation is restored, and strengths are discovered. A path of excellence and promise is created. We help children and teens discover themselves and grow through caring and connected relationships.
At ASCEND we often see that individuals and families are already:
Wanting things to feel better
Desiring more control
Seeking to feel closer as a family
Wishing to be less isolated and less conflicted
Wanting to feel successful
Ascend is privileged to work with smart and loving people and their families. ASCEND respects the strengths of each individual and sees the challenges of the culture within which they live. We find that we can help teens and parents apply their energies differently in order to find the results they hope for.
