Families formed through adoption, kinship and foster care face unique challenges. It is not always obvious that an issue you may be experiencing yourself or with your child may or may not be related to adoption. That’s where we come in. C.A.S.E.’s highly trained adoption-competent therapists work with birth, foster and adoptive families. We have knowledge, clinical skills and experience in treating individuals with a history of trauma including abuse and neglect.
C.A.S.E. is currently providing all counseling services through telehealth. Please visit our “schedule an appointment” page to learn more.
C.A.S.E. also offers a sliding fee program to a limited number of families each year who do not qualify for grants but are unable to afford the full fee for our services. Clients may apply anytime for a sliding fee; all applications will be re-evaluated on an annual basis. View the Sliding Fee Application.
You may be eligible to receive C.A.S.E. services free of charge! If you are in the process of adopting or have adopted through Montgomery County, Maryland Child Welfare Services, Prince George’s County Maryland DSS or other local jurisdictions, you may be eligible for free services.
Schedule your complimentary initial phone consultation today to see if C.A.S.E. is right for you and your family. With convenient locations across the D.C. and Baltimore metro regions, (Note – all services currently are being provided by telehealth only to mitigate the spread of COVID-19), C.A.S.E. is committed to helping your family thrive.
