What is Supervised Visitation?
Supervised visitation is when counselors monitor, coach and supervise visits between biological parents and children, children and relatives, and adoptive families and children. Visitation can be observation only or can be more in depth and therapeutic. The price varies for the supervision needed and requested. Counselors can provide assistance with reunification, family connection goals or if court ordered. The staff encourages good parenting using proven techniques such as “Love and Logic” and “1-2-3 Magic,” as well as appropriate behavior modification strategies through positive reinforcement and natural consequences to encourage and model effective communication. When necessary, staff can guide parents in the development of safety and behavior plans. Bi-lingual counselors are available as needed.
Where are visits held?
Visits are held at a safe, neutral, and therapeutic setting in the community or in our Chantilly or Woodbridge office locations. Please click on the Find Us page to get detailed directions to our offices. There is a venue fee if the visits are held in our office locations of $55.00/hour plus the supervision fee.
How long do visits last?
Supervised visitation sessions vary in length depending on the needs and wants of the family and the counselor assigned. The counselor will work directly with the family in order to meet their needs and possible time frames and duration of the visit.
