History of Therapeutic Services

Therapeutic Services at RISE emerged to fill gaps in RISE programs and services as they evolved over time. Our services started out as the CCF-Hospital Diversion Program (a brief, intensive version of the CCF Wraparound Model that also included in-home family focused therapy) and Home-Based Therapeutic Services (Working with home-visiting program participants of ECI – the Early Childhood Initiative- providing therapy for caregivers and children up to age 8).

Our team of therapeutic providers at RISE now offer services via a range of avenues to a wide variety of individuals. While each of our providers brings their own unique strengths and clinical interests, our team’s approach is influenced by our origins.

Values and Approach

Teaming and Collaboration

  • We prioritize collaborating with and growing the teams that support our participants.
  • We believe the work of therapy does not happen in a vacuum.

Systems Lens

  • We are attentive to how participants are impacted by the communities and systems they interact with.
  • We use a relational and attachment-informed approach. We work to include caregivers in the treatment of all minors. We work with adult participants to understand their history and their support system.


  • We continually educate ourselves on the impact of trauma on people and communities.
  • We prioritize using treatments that are effective in mitigating the impact of trauma.
  • We include a trauma lens in our assessment.

Strengths-based and Person-centered

  • We trust each participant’s wisdom and expertise regarding their experience and recovery journey.
  • We work to collaboratively identify and build on resources that are already present in our participants’ lives and selves.


  • We meet with participants in their homes and communities. We can also offer office-based or telehealth appointments.
  • We believe that recovery is most sustainable when done in community.

Crises are moments for learning and change

  • We are prepared to collaborate with teams and support networks (both formal and informal) to work toward safety and stability for participants experiencing crisis situations (such as suicidal ideation and safety concerns).
