An Integrated Approach to Young Adult Mental Health Rehab

Adam Furtado, LMFT

Clinical Director of Admissions

A key member of the Newport team since 2004, Adam Furtado provides comprehensive support around case conceptualization, treatment planning, and implementation of treatment interventions. He has worked in the mental healthcare field for more than two decades, primarily in clinical supervisory roles. Inspired by the work of psychotherapists Carl Rogers and Virginia Satir, who emphasized that each individual and family hold the unique formula to their own healing process, Adam finds it incredibly rewarding to support young people during this critical stage of life when they are defining their identity, building connection with peers and community, and stepping into their emerging adulthood.

Adam specializes in culturally sensitive, trauma-informed care that honors clients’ and family’s stories, while working to resolve the effects of trauma that may be inhibiting healthy living. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach, he advocates for customized care in which each individual’s beliefs, life circumstances, and family history inform their treatment plans and interventions. Adam believes that matching the clinical model, goals, and strategies to each young adult’s specific needs is critical to ensuring successful outcomes and sustainable healing.

Clinical Expertise

Along with his certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Adam is highly experienced in conjoint family therapy and trained in Attachment-Based Family Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. He also has extensive training in serving diverse and minority populations, including the LGBTQ, first-generation immigrant, and Hispanic/Latino communities. A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Adam teaches courses on assessment, treatment planning, and advanced theoretical application for Chapman University’s graduate marriage and family therapy program, where he serves as adjunct faculty. His previous experience includes clinical supervisor positions at The Guidance Center and Genesis Healthcare, both in Long Beach, California, providing oversight and support to other clinicians.
