Our Story

Adagio House was created to care for those who care so wholeheartedly for others. 

There are some therapy options for individuals with disabilities, but no one was focused on caring for their caregivers.  Our Executive Director, April, understands this need from a deeply personal place and is working to design a place of unconditional acceptance and practical support. Read more below about April's story and the origins of our organization. 

 

Caregivers often don’t have many people they can rely on to provide care in their absence. So, we offer therapists who think outside the box to provide a safe, therapeutic space for people with disabilities and onsite respite care from experienced providers during caregiver’s therapy sessions.  Caregivers and their loved ones often are un- or under-insured, so we accept most major insurance and respective forms of Medicaid, offer a generous sliding fee scale, and have a Compassion Fund that currently supports free and reduced fee sessions.  

And who doesn’t love a place of unconditional acceptance and practical support?  While our focus continues to be on caregivers and the ones they care for, we have grown to serve a broader client base as the need for mental health services has increased throughout the pandemic.  Unconditional acceptance means we welcome everyone here.

Adagio House is a welcoming
community of healing. 

Our Mission

Our Vision

We are a community of healing that welcomes every beautiful individual, just as they are. 

 

Guided by deep expertise, compassion, lived experiences and a sense of purpose, our team is providing the counseling, care, and space needed to heal those wounded by a lack of belonging.

We are a growing organization, consistently increasing possibilities for our community to access comprehensive care through psychotherapy, holistic wellness, mentoring, sustainable gardening, medical and psychiatric services, psychological testing, and one day a full service inn and retreat center with a farm to table restaurant employing adults with disabilities.

Our Origin Story

"...This brought a renewal of confidence in my parenting, along with an ability to begin to take up space where I hadn’t before.  And as I healed, I began to dream.  I began to think that these things that helped me so much would also help other caregivers, and I started to look for attachment resources for parents of children with disabilities.  It didn’t exist.  And the vision for Adagio House was born..."
