The Comprehensive Treatment Your Child Needs, Right at Home
In-Home Therapy for Adolescents & Young Adults
What Is In-Home Therapy?
In-home therapy provides consistent, structured care for children and families at home, school, in the community, or online.
Licensed therapists conduct sessions with both your child and family in a more relaxed setting like a coffee shop, library, or your living room, rather than in a typical office.
In-home therapy can improve your child’s ability to thrive in your community and at home. These services reduce the need for out-of-home treatment, such as hospitalization or residential care. They can also help your child transition back home after an out-of-home program.

How Does Embark In-Home Therapy Work?
Embark offers a support system designed to help preteens, teens, and young adults maintain good mental health as they experience life changes and deal with a variety of behavioral and emotional challenges.
We use a “Family Systems” approach that looks like this:
- Two, licensed clinicians, both with master’s and/or doctorate degrees in the mental health field, work with your family.
- One clinician is assigned as the clinical mentor to work with your child, and one is assigned as a parent coach to work with you, the parents.
- Clinicians partner with the family’s community to reintegrate your child back into their local supports.
In addition to weekly scheduled sessions, your clinicians show up for you in real-time, when you need guidance and support the most. This strong, in-the-moment support leads to lasting, positive change.
What Does Our Concierge, In-Home Therapy Include?
Licensed therapists and clinicians begin with a comprehensive evaluation. Then, an in-home therapy treatment plan is developed with your child and family.
The treatment plan is reviewed regularly to evaluate progress and is updated as needed. Treatment plans typically include:
- Comprehensive assessment and evaluation
- Individualized treatment plans
- Customized, family-based treatment
- 24-hour crisis support and response
- Parental coaching and skills development
