About Mosaic House

Mosaic House is a 15-bed home where students stay a minimum of four months.  During this time, students work on clinical, academic and daily living goals.  Mosaic House is staffed at a ratio of one staff for every eight students. 

The Mosaic House experience includes:

  • Weekly individual or family therapy
  • Weekly individual and parent coaching
  • A choice of academic options designed to meet each student’s unique academic needs
  • Daily living skills
  • Activities tailored to students’ interests

Mosaic House Mission

Mosaic House is a nurturing, home-like environment that provides adolescent girls 14 – 18 years of age with opportunities to practice life skills while refining their executive functioning through real world application.  Mosaic House staff use a DBT coaching model to assist our adolescent girls toward self-sufficiency and early adulthood.

The Mosaic House Philosophy

I do it.   We do it.  You do it.  Mosaic House staff coach students through the process of integrating new skills by first demonstrating, then collaborating and finally coaching the student to use the new skill herself.

Privileges based on Performance – Students are gradually given more privileges as they prove that they can handle privileges appropriately.

Boundaries and Consequences  - It is understood that students will have boundaries and limits and that there will be consequences if boundaries are violated.  Parents are a part of the process of establishing boundaries and applying consequences.

It’s going to get messy – and we will handle it together!  Mosaic House creates a co-parenting team to help the student and the parents navigate through predictable regressions in behavior that occur through the process of generalizing skills to a new environment.
