Become a part of the
Blackhawk Family Development Center tribe!



We offer treatment that goes beyond symptom relief by building relationships and supporting your entire family system.

In today's world, most nuclear families are self-reliant. There's no extended family nearby to lend a hand or answer the hard questions. 

That's why we've created an office that feels like home, built therapy programs that feel like social play dates, and hired clinicians who are the best at what they do. We've built the foundation for the support system your family needs, and now we're inviting you to be a part of it.

We strongly believe in the importance of having a home-base for healing, growth, and human-connection. We welcome all - regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender-orientation, sexual-orientation, or spiritual beliefs - to join us in our safe space.

We fundamentally believe that each person can achieve happiness, and that happiness can be cultivated through internal resiliency. All of our services are steeped in a family systems, strength-based, solution focused approach.

Whether we are working with a child, adolescent or adult, our therapy and assessment services offer the opportunity to develop the positive self concept that promotes interactions fueled through resilience, innovation, and positive intention. 

You and your family deserve a warm, peaceful, and inviting place to spend time together as you work through the complicated stuff. Our office was designed to make you feel safe and taken care of — and maybe even a little pampered. 

Our Mission: An authentic approach to providing premier strength-based, solution-focused therapy.

Welcome to your village!

Dr. Surina Mazzola — Blackhawk Family Development Center

There’s nothing basic about Blackhawk Family Development Center.

We care deeply about our clients and their experiences, which is why we are available in between sessions to all our patients. If you ever need help, we are just a phone call away. (Or a text or email — we know not everyone likes to talk on the phone.)

Our founder, Dr. Mazzola was honored to be invited to participate in TedX - Emerald Glen Park in early 2019. She describes her roots as a “Grand Central Station of Love”, and how that upbringing inspired her to develop Blackhawk Family Development Center’s mission and philosophy.

Let Blackhawk Family Development Center be the support system you need.

How can we support you right now?

Dr. Surina Mazzola has shown that she is accurately intuitive with her patients and that her genuine sincerity is one of her natural tools she uses in connecting with individuals.
