What is FRDC?

Young people today are faced with many challenges that place great amounts of stress on their emotional health. It is often helpful to have individuals in the community who can support them to successfully move through these emotional challenges. Family Resource and Development Center, LLC was developed in response to such challenges.

The founders of FRDC-Dan Weiner, Marc Lehman, and Geoff Genser have specialized for years in their particular areas of treatment with children, adolescents, and families. Providing these specialties under one roof with more clinical services was the right thing to do.

FRDC offers individual, family, couples, and group therapy services to children, adolescents and adults. The FRDC therapists utilize office and home-based treatment approaches to assist young people and their families in recognizing their difficulties and developing skills that allow them to feel emotionally healthy again. The therapists engage the supports of the family, the school, and the community in addressing emotional and behavioral difficulties that interfere with daily life activities and personal goals.
