We offer individual psychotherapy services to adolescents, young adults (ages 18 to 30), adults, and seniors. As described on our Home page tab under 'Treatment Approach', we utilize a variety of treatment approaches: supportive, psycho-educational, DBT and CBT, skills building, stress management and relaxation training, psycho-dynamic, family systems, art therapy and sand tray therapy. We also offer evening appointments to meet client needs.
We provide couples therapy (marriage counseling) and family therapy, again using a wide variety of family therapy techniques such as family systems assessment and modification, family education and support, and improving boundaries and communication skills.
Adult Advanced Recovery Groups
We now offer two Advanced Recovery Groups, for those individuals who have:
Successfully completed our Intensive Outpatient Program
Successfully completed the DBT skills training program
Completed inpatient residential treatment at a mental health or substance abuse treatment facility
Made significant progress in either individual psychotherapy or family therapy (at either our facility or with a psychotherapist in the community)
Our morning group meets every Thursday from 10:00 until noon.
Our evening group meets the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Attendance requirements for both of our Advanced Recovery Groups (ARG's) are flexible. Once an individual has been pre-screened by the group and primary needs/issues have been identified with the group therapist, insurance and cost issues will be discussed, and the individual may join one or both groups. Attendance is as needed - it is not required every week. Membership in our ARG's is limited to motivated adults.
The purposes of these Advanced Groups are to:
Maintain treatment gains, including new coping skills and strategies acquired in the earlier phases of treatment
Facilitate continued learning of new coping skills and strategies to improve mood, relationships, academic and career development, and to generally "create a life worth living"
Provide a safe place and supportive relationships for exploring areas needing to be further addressed (i.e. conflicts, dilemmas, relationship and career issues, etc.)
Manage stress more effectively in order to prevent relapse
