Types of Services
Psychosocial Assessment: A thorough assessment of client concerns and treatment issues completed in the first session. The assessment is used to identify core issues and to collaboratively identify treatment goals.
Individual Therapy: One-on-one sessions focused on your individual treatment needs. Individual therapy goals are identified early in treatment and research-based methods are used to address these goals.
Family Therapy: Therapy focused on improving the communication and overall functioning of the family. Family therapy can be in addition to individual therapy when family issues are identified, or it can be the primary mode of therapy. In family therapy goals are defined to meet the specific needs of the family.
Couples Therapy: Therapy focused on improving marital and non-marital relationships including both heterosexual and gay relationships. The focus is on improving communication, understanding each partner’s expectations and beliefs regarding relationships, knowing the underlying perceptions and meanings associated with each partner’s communications and actions, and producing tolerances for non-offensive quirks or behaviors.
Parent-Focused Treatment: Parenting is incredibly difficult even in the best circumstances. Parents often can use support.Therapy focused on parents helps them identify obstacles to positive parenting and provides education regarding the most effective parenting strategies.
Talk and Walk Therapy: Often a key component to improving mood is to get moving. Talk therapy is taken outside where you have the opportunity to talk and walk through the concerns you have. Research has consistently demonstrated the benefits of exercise on psychological well-being. Talk and walk therapy is a way to incorporate movement into therapy to support both physical and mental health. The focus will remain on the talk, but with the addition of movement. It is not strenuous physical training, but prior permission from your primary care physician may be required.
Consultation: Receiving support and education from a mental health professional may be very beneficial. Consultation is a way to receive support and education without being in treatment. A few examples of when consultation may be needed are when you are struggling to understand a substance abusing family member, when you are dealing with an adult child in your home who is making no strides towards independence, or when you are struggling to understand a mental health diagnoses of a loved one. In these situations you may be looking for the support of a knowledgeable professional who can provide you with information and/or recommendations for dealing with the situation.
