Therapeutic Mentoring (TM)

TM offers structured, one-to-one, strength based services between a therapeutic mentor and a youth for the purpose of addressing daily living, social and communication needs. Services include supporting, coaching, and training the youth in age-appropriate behaviors, interpersonal communications, problem-solving and conflict resolution, and appropriately relating to other children as well as adults, in recreational and social activities pursuant to a behavioral treatment plan developed by provider(s) working with the youth. These services help to ensure the youth's success in navigating various social contexts, learning new skills and making functional progress, while the Therapeutic Mentor offers supervision of these interactions and engages the youth in discussions about strategies for effective handling of peer interactions.

An Outpatient Therapist, In-Home Therapy Provider or Intensive Care Coordinator is required to make this referral.
Services are covered by the following insurances: MBHP, BMC Healthnet, NHP, and Nework Health.

We are also able to provide services to individuals who have private insurance with MassHealth as a secondary insurance, and we can accommodate private pay contracts for schools, state agencies, etc.
