The Papillion Center

Company Overview: The Papillion Center is a faith-based, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) counseling/therapeutic center with a sliding fee scale that utilizes specialized techniques to bring about hope and healing to children and families in hard places. Specializing in Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, attachment disorders, and early childhood trauma, we provide services to families and individuals of all ages, but specifically focus on families with children from ages 0-18. One of our foundational principles revolves around an attachment-based, trauma-informed connection known as Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). We believe that effective interventions must focus on the whole child - their behaviors, emotions, thoughts, relationships, ecologies, and physiology. TBRI is a foundational perspective within our organization, allowing us to better meet the critical needs of our valued clients.
