Hello!
Welcome to HopePoint!

This page is to learn a little bit about who we are and what it is like to come to HopePoint!

The outside sign looks like this. You might be nervous the first time you come here and that's okay. Sometimes adults are worried the first time too!

Here are some things you might see when you are at HopePoint.

What is HopePoint?

HopePoint is a place where Helpers (we have therapists and a psychologist), help kids, teens, and adults figure out how they feel or think about situations or experiences. Sometimes coming here is about finding different ways to be mad or figuring out how to feel safe.  Usually, it takes both kids and adults doing things in a different way to make life better! We are here to help!

Sarah has a special job and usually only gets to see kids 3 or 4 times. She has kids do games and some pencil and paper work to figure out how awesome they are at different tasks and what can help them when work is difficult. You might want to know how many Snoopys are in Sarah’s office, but you will have to count them for yourself!

Have Questions?

We Love Questions and we ask them all the time!

What will I do when I'm at HopePoint?

What do I call the therapist/helper?

Will my parent/adult be with me?

It depends on the reasons you are coming and how old you are. Most of the therapists have drawing or art projects, games, and other toys that might be used.

You can ask your therapist/helper what they want to be called, but most of us go by our first name with "Miss" before it.

Parents might be in the room for a little bit of the meeting time, sometimes for the whole time.

Will the therapist tell my parent/adult what I say?

Your therapist/helper has rules that they have to follow. One of those rules is that they can't tell others what you say except for a few situations. You and your therapist can discuss it when you meet.

Do I have to get any shots at your office?

Will the therapist be mad if make a mistake?

Wait, I have other questions!

Absolutely Not! We leave that important job to the medical doctors and nurses.

Nope! We are all always learning how to make better choices.

Awesome! You can ask us questions anytime.
