For Professionals

The MoveFwd Philosophy

MoveFwd therapists work with young people and their families from a strengths-based perspective and incorporate therapy approaches that support and empower youth. These approaches include utilizing a harm-reduction model and aspects of solution focused, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral and client centered approaches. Our licensed therapists are equipped to facilitate or co-facilitate groups in schools or at our MoveFwd offices, on a wide variety of relevant topics. We provide short-term counseling for youth (ages 12-24) and their families.

Young people and their parents may contact MoveFwd directly. All services are free. No insurance or referrals are needed. We also remove transportation barriers by offering to meet our clients in our MoveFwd offices or at school.

Many MoveFwd clients also find our therapy and case management services through referrals from school staff, local police officers or from their friends.

If you would like to refer a young person to MoveFwd, we welcome your call at 952/988-TEEN (8336).
