Read the Story of How Adagio House Began

Our Story

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

At the time, there were some therapy options for individuals with disabilities, but no one was focused on caring for their caregivers. Our Executive Director, April, understood this need from a deeply personal place, which is what led her 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.


Our Philosophy

Adagio House exists to provide high-quality, trauma-informed, attachment-based services to all types of caregivers and their loved ones, regardless of their ability to pay. 

We believe our environment is desirable for all who experience the pain of marginalization and welcome anyone to seek healing here.

We believe healthy relationships are the foundation for a healthy life. In addition to individual therapy, we run various support groups. We are also currently developing other avenues for our community to create and maintain healthy relationships with one another.

Services provided flow out of an intentional work community of sustainable, holistic care for ourselves, each other, and our world. 

Our environment is one of transformational welcome, mutuality, and practical support in which co-workers practice the principles they teach clients.
