Our Approach

Beautiful Minds uses evidence-based therapeutic modalities that consider the individual. As a youth-guided, family-centered agency, youth and their families are assigned in-home providers with experience relevant to treatment needs.

The Beautiful Minds approach is shaped by the study of neuroscience, Applied Behavior Analysis, and positive psychology.

user Neuroscience

Experiences can alter the functions of the brain. An individual, like his or her brain, can flourish and grow, when nurtured and supported.

compose Applied Behavior Analysis

Understanding an individual’s behaviors can lead to change. When positive behaviors are rewarded, they are repeated.

heart Positive Psychology

An individual’s focus on the positive can foster personal growth. Building upon existing strengths and traits can increase satisfaction and engagement.

Our Team

Our team believes that all minds are beautiful and can be changed by a strong therapeutic relationship and use of evidence-based practices. We are trauma-informed and have developed additional specialties based on our own passions. Each team member is a highly qualified, strength-based professional who promotes the Wraparound process.
