Continuum of Care

Early Childhood Therapy

New Vista staff provide training and consultation families who require nurturing and attachment therapy along with strategies for when very young children are emotional and behaviorally acting out.

Outpatient Clinical Therapy

Our master’s level therapists are trained in evidence-based practices. At New Vista, we make connections immediately with children and caregivers to understand the reasons therapy services are needed. We measure progress at every session to stay on track and help the family reach recovery.

School-Based Therapy

Throughout our 17 county service area in Central Kentucky, New Vista provides therapy services within the school setting. These services can include teachers, counselors, coaches and school staff. We can meet with families at school when possible. This flexibility breaks down the barriers of keeping appointments and prevents unnecessary lengths of time away from the school day.

IMPACT Targeted Case Management

The IMPACT program is for children diagnosed with high-intensity behavioral health needs. IMPACT seeks to empower families by identifying their strengths and creating a plan that includes community resources and support to help the family. If you would like to refer a child to IMPACT please download the referral form or call 1.800.928.8000.

High Fidelity Wraparound Services

Wraparound services are designed for families of children whose serve behavioral health issues have not responded well to other interventions and are causing significant disruptions to the life of the child and family. Services are offered in Clark, Fayette, Madison and Scott counties. Click here for more information on Wraparound.

Psychiatry Services

Individual circumstances may require psychotropic medication assessment and treatment. These services occur in tandem with therapy services and aren’t standalone services. At New Vista, we believe strongly in prescribing medication on a limited basis and only as a part of therapy.

Community Support Services

These services are carried out by trained specialists who provide assistance to therapists and case managers with skill building identified in the treatment plan. Community Support Specialists may teach parenting skills, budgeting, coping skills, how to access transportation, reminders or medications and other skills.

Peer Support Services

Peer support specialists provide emotional support from their own similar life experiences. Peers are in recovery from a behavioral health issue and are trained to work with families by providing socialization, therapeutic activities as well as skill building.


Evidenced-Based Therapy 

Partners for Change Outcome Management System

PCOMS is a practice emphasizing client voice, positive relationship between client and therapist, and feedback about progress being made in treatment. It involves measuring progress and the strength of the therapist-client relationship at every session using scientifically validated measurement tools. This promotes an alliance between client and therapist. Therapy matches the areas the client wants to see changed in their life with data-driven outcomes. PCOMS keeps progress on track or suggest changes in therapy if the desired change isn’t happening.

Motivational Interviewing

MI is an approach to increase the client’s awareness of the potential problems caused, consequences experienced and risks faced as a result of the behavior in question. It seeks to help clients think differently about their behavior and ultimately consider what might be gained through change.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT, including trauma-informed care, is a problem-focused and action-oriented therapy. CBT considers the influence a person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors and develops strategies to reduce symptoms and distress by learning new skills and coping methods.
