Let’s Do This Together 

Feeling alone, hopeless and unsure how to move forward is part of the human experience.  For parents, it scan sometimes be hard to know what is “just part of growing up” versus when your child might need extra support and treatment. Learning about the warning sign in your child can be helpful in early intervention. At Sage House, we work with you to understand and manage symptoms in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. No one should suffer alone without the help that is needed. Our goal is to connect back to your authentic, natural self for lasting change and greater wellbeing.
