Please call 911 if there is risk of harm to yourself or others. In addition to 911, you can call Crisis Services 716-834-3131 or the Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) at ECMC 716-898-3465.

Are your therapists qualified?

Our therapists are all fully qualified mental health professionals. That means they have a masters degree and are certified in social work, LCSW, or have a licensed doctorate, PH.D or Psy.D in psychology. They are also supervised by professionally licensed clinical supervisors who have over 50 years of experience combined.

How long will my child need to be in therapy?

Every child and family is different and has different needs. We will have a better understanding after we have a few meetings to discuss your unique situation.

What is a typical session like?

We know that meeting a therapist for the first time can be an anxious situation. Your ET therapist will do all they can to help you feel comfortable. Meeting with the therapist is like meeting anyone you are getting to know. You can ask any questions you have. It starts with a conversation.

How long are the sessions?

Session times can range from thirty minutes to an hour and a half depending on the service being provided. A check-in when things are going well may not need as long a time as a session with multiple family members, for example. Typically sessions are about 45-50 minutes.
