KVC provides two types of in-home services: Medically-Necessary Services and Socially-Necessary Services. There is a great deal of research showing the positive impact of conducting therapy in the home as opposed to an office setting. The family home is where challenges exist and where change must occur!
KVC provides Medically Necessary services to children and adults who have Medicaid and meet APS Healthcare and Medicaid criteria for medical necessity.
KVC licensed therapists provide quality mental healthcare by developing trust and treating the whole person. Our mental health professionals offer individual and family therapies in the privacy of your home or at our offices. Services are child-centered, family-driven and strength-based. Our therapists are trained in the latest evidence-based treatment approaches, including Trauma Systems Therapy. We work to meet the needs of children, adolescents and adults so they can meet their full potential at home, school and work.
We offer both individual and family therapy. Contact your local KVC office to check therapist availability in your area!
We serve clients equally, without regard to race, color or national origin.
