Ways We Help

  • Family Therapy

    We work to strengthen families of all types by promoting good communication, connection, and problem-solving skills, and working through family trauma. We help families by quickly getting down to the seeds of conflict in their family “trees” and starting to do things differently so that their trees can bear healthy fruit. Our staff assists parents in developing effective parenting strategies for children of all ages.

  • Wraparound/System of Care

    Children who’ve suffered trauma often have complex needs and require creative, customized interventions to recover and realize their potential in life. NorthCare brings expertise and experience to provide specialized services that “wraparound” families to promote children’s healing and support families impacted by trauma.

  • Parenting Classes

    NorthCare offers a variety of parenting classes that focus on all ages, and have two primary goals: Get a teenager to behave better, while at the same time enhancing the relationship.

  • Community/Home-Based Services

    Offers specialized community-based services with a multidisciplinary team for those whose needs are better met in the community than through traditional, office-based services but families are not interested in a comprehensive wraparound program.

  • School-Based Services

    We offer school-based counseling and support for children and teens with emotional or behavioral problems. With offices in select schools across the Oklahoma City School District, our therapists can quickly intervene so children get the help they need to achieve their best at school.

  • Foster Care Stabilization and Family Reunification Services

    Helps children & youths placed in the DHS foster care system to retain successful placement by supporting the entire family system and then following the child or youth to family reunification when possible. A multidisciplinary team assists the family with intense needs.

  • Child Psychiatry

    Our team of highly skilled psychiatrists and nurses support, strengthen, and enhance your mental health. We provide psychiatric assessments and, when needed, the newest and most effective medication is prescribed and provided through our in-house pharmacy.

  • Youth in Transition

    NorthCare helps youth and young adults to develop & utilize independent living skills. As a Certified Community Behavioral Health Agency (CCBHC), we are committed to empowering our clients to live healthier lifestyles to improve both physical and mental well-being.
