About Us:

VPI is committed to providing individualized comprehensive services to children and adolescents who often have experienced complex developmental trauma. Our students, in response to their life experiences, can present them with a constellation of adaptive mechanisms that have become distressing symptoms. These symptoms are often present as self-harm, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, aggression, suicidality, as well as disordered eating. We believe the students who come to us deserve a safe and secure environment where they can find hope and healing.

Our programming affords children and adolescents the opportunity to make connections with others, to grow and discover their gifts, and realize their potential to thrive. We facilitate growth-promoting experiences through secure relationships that increase the student's ability to self-regulate and manage their inner lives to optimize feelings of safety, confidence, and competency.
