Our Response To COVID-19
Providing both online and in-person counseling, psyco-educational testing and online Social Skills Groups.
Saftey remains our highest priority and we will continue to assess the sitution and make any necessarry changes.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has been extremely challenging for families, adults and children.
We have all been asked to make enormous sacrifices to our normal routines and paused activities outside of our homes. This new normal has created frustrations, feelings of isolation and challenges as we reimagine our daily-lives and find ways to bring back yesterday’s routines.
As a mental health practice, we too have had to redefine the scope of our practice. We have listened to our clients and watched as the social and emotion needs have drastically changed. Our clients have had to find ways to adapt to a new normal, with lack of autonomy, intense living conditions and overall less freedoms inside and outside the home.
The team at Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley and Associates have been working tirelessly to bring our research-based, social-skills groups to an online platform. We are very encouraged with the positive feedback we have received about our adapted online model that we have been able to provide the same quality of care in an online setting.
As always, at KPLA, any level of care begins with a FREE phone consultation with Marian Curtis, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), who is our Client Care Coordinator. She will listen to you and take time to understand and address your unique concerns. Marian will help you to determine if Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley, and Associates is going to benefit you and your family and direct you to the appropriate KPLA professional best suited to your needs. In the event we are not an appropriate fit, she will make every effort to provide you with a referral source outside of our practice.
Due to the specialized nature of our social/emotional development groups, an initial no-cost evaluation session is offered to parents and students whose presenting issues fall within the treatment range for our unique model. For students whose presenting problems fall outside this range, or for those who present with more significant difficulties, we will offer a more appropriate referral within or outside of our practice.
We specialize in client-centered treatment for preschool aged children through young adults. For 30 years, KPLA has offered socialization/social-skills groups, in addition to providing psycho-educational testing and individual and family/couple counseling, with a focus on:
- Learning Disabilities
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
- Anxiety Disorders
- Educational Support
- Young-Adult Coaching/Therapy
