About The Institute
Situated in a private, comfortable, nurturing setting in Briarcliff Manor, NY, BIRD is a small, private agency of expert clinicians that offer skillful, compassionate care as a team to create change in our client’s life.
So that our techniques can be most effectively harnessed to remove past trauma and facilitate change, we utilize small, intimate therapy groups to better deal with moving emotional, physical and spiritual blocks. Here, group members are carefully selected to mirror and complement each other’s growth so that maximum development will occur.
After a comprehensive evaluation In our individual, couples, family therapy, the clinician with the level of expertise that mirrors your evaluation will be the one you will be working with
(if necessary) along with a team of experienced professionals. Also you will have the option to attend personal retreats and workshops as an adjunct to your work if you wish.
We create a safe and compassionate environment where staff members are available to all family members. Our belief is that families can and will learn to strengthen each other allowing the shift from living, hurting, wounding addictive systems to a reconstructed one of healing
Our therapists incorporate a wide variety of techniques designed to maximize movement in the clinical therapeutic process. This is particularly applicable with our youth groups where we place great emphasis on incorporating a non-traditional model that is teen and young adult oriented. Rather than attempting to force fit these youths into our model, we are able to incorporate a variety of treatments that result in a non-judgmental environment in which caring and compassion become dominant
Long Lasting Recovery
The approach is unique in that our professional staff combines core clinical techniques with additional therapeutic approaches designed to heighten awareness and foster trust. In addition to traditional family systems theory therapy, father-son, mother-daughter and mentoring work, we incorporate meditation workshops, restorative yoga, drumming, retreats, psychodrama, grief and rage reduction work and other approaches that enable the participant to experience the power derived by living in the present. The result invariably is a long lasting recovery in which one achieves greater appreciation and joy of one’s life experience.
