Complex Family Systems Program

What Is CFS? 

The Complex Family Systems (CFS) program serves families who are involved in family court and need high-conflict coparenting, court-ordered, and/or resist/refuse therapy (sometimes called reunification therapy, reintegration therapy, or parent-child contact therapy).

Description of Complex Family Systems (CFS) Core Services

To get on the waiting list for services, please fill out the form below. You will receive an email confirming you have been added to the waiting list. If you receive a confirmation email, you are on the waiting list.

We do not anticipate being able to bill insurance for these services. As such, it is most likely these services will need to be paid for out-of-pocket.

When an opening becomes available, you will have 14 days to complete the following, and possibly other, tasks (for both parents):

  • Pay applicable deposit

-For individual CFS therapy (child or parent), coparenting, and family therapy: $2,000 deposit

-For resist/refuse therapy (sometimes called reunification therapy, reintegration therapy, or parent-child contact therapy): approximately $7,500 per parent spread over several payments over 3-6 months (with over half being due up front)

  • Complete the intake process, including the completion of all intake forms and releases of information
  • Provide all requested documentation (including applicable court orders)
  • Agree to an ongoing appointment schedule

If you are not prepared to complete these tasks within 14 days, we will move to the next person on the waiting list. Therefore, it will be important for you to be prepared, and ensure your coparent is prepared, to pay your deposit and complete the intake process in a timely manner. 

Coparenting Services

Coparenting Services are designed to help parents put aside their anger and hurt with one another and move in a forward direction. Rather than being controlled by what has happened in the past, coparents are able to find a balance in their lives while remaining the best parents that they can be with a common goal of tending to the well-being of their child(ren). Coparenting Services assist in reducing conflict, improving communication, and implementing helpful parenting strategies.

Resist/Refuse Services

Resist/Refuse Services (sometimes called Reunification Services, Reintegration Services, or Parent-Child Contact Services) work to repair relationships between parents and children when that repair is in a child’s best interests. Resist/Refuse Services are often court ordered. We involve all parents and require that they work together to provide a unified message to their child(ren). Resist/Refuse Services are designed to assist in healing and repairing relationships and increase trust between parent and child(ren) and support healthy communication between coparents. Families participate in a screening process before starting Resist/Refuse Services to assess the safety of the intervention for all family members and the readiness of the family to participate constructively.
