Individual therapy involves meeting one-on-one with a trained professional in a confidential and safe space where you can openly express your feelings, gain a better understanding of yourself and your condition, learn strategies to manage your symptoms and improve your mental health, develop coping skills, and facilitate healthier lifestyle changes.
You and your therapist will determine the frequency and duration of sessions depending upon your individual situation, presenting needs, and preferences. Individual therapy is also referred to as psychotherapy, talk therapy, mental health counseling, or individual counseling.
Infant Mental Health
Infant Mental Health (IMH) refers to the social and emotional development of a child from birth through three. IMH services can include meeting with a trained therapist individually to reflect on the unique challenges of raising a young child, as well as sessions with your child.
IMH utilizes screening and assessment, play-based techniques, reflection, developmental guidance and support, to improve bonding and attachment, enhance parent-child relationship, and support positive mental health.
Couples counseling is a form of psychotherapy where you and your partner meet with a trained therapist to learn how to understand each other better, work through challenges, resolve conflict, improve communication, strengthen connection, and help you feel more secure in your relationship.
You don’t have to be on the verge of divorce or a breakup to seek couples therapy. Couples counseling can help you at any stage of your relationship, regardless of marital status, age, race, faith, or sexual orientation. Couples counseling can also help couples going through a divorce to separate amicably, and learn ways to co-parent together, as well as blended-families.
If your family is experiencing increased arguments or tension at home, sibling conflicts, addiction concerns, adjustment to a recent life change such as a mental health or physical health diagnosis, job loss, birth of a child, adoption, divorce, remarriage, blended family, or death of a loved one, then you would benefit from meeting with one of our therapists trained in family therapy.
Family therapy addresses specific concerns that affect the health and functioning of a family. Through family therapy, you will learn skills to reduce stress, resolve conflict, improve communication, interact with each other in healthier ways, and strengthen relationships, so that your family can function better as a unit.
Parent Management Training
If you are concerned that your child is struggling with oppositional or defiant behavior, aggression, difficulty following directions, or temper tantrums, then you would benefit from meeting with a therapist trained in Parent Management Training (PMT).
Through PMT, you will learn parenting skills such as giving good directions, limit-setting, positive reinforcement, and problem-solving, to improve your child’s behaviors, increase cooperation, promote social skills, healthy child development, and emotional functioning, as well as fostering a positive relationship with your child.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy approach that is effective with treating Trauma or PTSD, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Depression and Bipolar Disorders, Sleep Problems, Eating Disorders, Addiction, Chronic & Acute Pain symptoms, and Complicated Grief.
During EMDR therapy, you share a specific problem or painful memory, and your therapist uses eye movements or rhythmic tapping to change the way that memory is stored in the brain, allowing you to process it so the memory becomes less distressing, and you can reach recovery and healing.
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment model designed to assist children, adolescents, and their families in overcoming the negative effects of a single traumatic event or multiple traumas, such as abuse, neglect, bullying, serious illness or accident, exposure to domestic violence, or loss of a loved one.
TF-CBT helps the child process their trauma, learn how to regulate emotions, and manage symptoms. A TF-CBT trained therapist incorporates individual child and parent sessions, as well as conjoint parent-child sessions using family therapy principles to help the child cope with their trauma, and enhance future safety and healthy development.
