Welcome to Bloom Behavioral Therapy!
Therapeutic Services for Children, Adults and Families

We are proud to be the only certified providers of
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) in the Upstate!
Parents who enroll in PCIT get their own personal trainer: a therapist who guides the parent-child interaction through a wireless earpiece. In a typical session, the therapist stays behind a one-way mirror and instructs parents through the earpiece as they play with and learn to discipline their child in an adjacent playroom. The live coaching catches ineffective parenting habits and helps parents practice “superparenting” skills, which combine frequent praise and attention for good behavior with a clear system of ignoring, warnings, and timeouts for bad.
"We are so grateful forour therapist. She helped me develop tools on how to successfully get my kids to listen to me without breaking their spirit. I have different children today than when we first started going to Bloom Behavioral Therapy. If your kids aren't listening to you, have difficulty following instructions, acting out aggressively and any other unpleasant behaviors this is the place for you."
What Our Clients Say
Does Therapy Really Work?
Each visit, caregivers rate their child's behavior using the ECBI. The ECBI score is then put on a graph to track progress and ensure therapeutic interventions are making a measurable, positive impact. Below are a few example graphs of recent PCIT graduates. Disruptive behavior scores typically start out very high (around 200) and gradually decrease throughout the course of therapy, eventually ending up in the average range (below 114/the bold line).
