Ms. Jennifer Sexton of Virginia Home Based Counseling met with Dr. Amy Gordon, Dr. Margaret Wong, Dr. Maggie Avedisian, Dr.Joseph Novello and Dr. Michael Oberschneider of Ashburn Psychological and Psychiatric Services to discuss ways in which the two groups could work together more closely to support Northern Virginia families in need.

Virginia Home Based Counseling is a State Licensed Intensive In-Home Service program that provides therapeutic intervention to families with children who are at risk for an out of home placement due to the child’s mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder. Intensive in-home services are an effective way to address the situation within the individual’s environment and to produce change. The program provides therapeutic services designed to reduce disruptive, problematic, or risky behavior and seeks to empower parents to develop and lead healthier lives.

The primary goal of this program is to preserve the family unit and prevent the unnecessary placement of children outside of their homes or community.
