What We Do

We assist individuals and families who are facing challenges and are ready for new perspectives that honor both individual uniqueness and interpersonal relationships.

Being and intense, sensitive child - or raising one - can be lonely and painful. Mainstream culture is not set up to accept and support gifted and other intense people.

Instead of feeling isolated, kids and their families coming to Cottonwood Center sense that they might meet a friend at any moment. Their interests are respected, celebrated and engaged. There are opportunities to try new, creative activities. The scariness and discomfort of the social-emotional work will give way to an environment that is supportive, understanding and nonjudgmental.

Assessment & Testing
