What does the initial consultation look like?

During the initial consultation, we take a brief look at your history to help us identify your reason for attending therapy. We measure your progress by creating tangible goals and tasks. We ask about the reduction of night terrors, vivid memories, panic attacks, and check-in for the reduction of symptoms. Identifying your expectations helps assist us with the overall journey. Sessions are usually once per week. With the collaborative approach and measurable goals we are able to check-in every time we meet.

Which types of therapy are offered?

Individual Therapy
Many of the healthiest and most successful individuals of society have had or have counseling sessions to maintain their mental wellness. Individual therapy sessions help people to become more self-aware and encourage self-growth through the management of emotions and recognition of unhealthy coping strategies with stressors of life. Strong health in mind is often overlooked in comparison to a strong body, but it equally important. “My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don’t know why I wouldn’t seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth.” ―Kerry Washington

Group Therapy
During group therapy, clients identify what they wish to accomplish during the training. From learning how to embrace anger to replacing negative patterns of behavior. Instead of ignoring the signs, clients will understand how to work with their temper.

Although marriage counseling may seem overwhelming at first, it is an important first step to changing unhealthy patterns of a relationship, to break toxic cycles and to highlight the positive in the marriage. Marriage counseling is a therapy that will help intimate couples to resolve issues and work towards common goals as a couple. These sessions will help to empower each partner with healthier communication skills and may address such topics as sexual difficulties, family conflict, substance abuse, anger, and/or infidelity. Marriage counseling sessions may begin with one or both partners.

What types of modality?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sessions, you will learn to manage thoughts and feelings through a structured form of replacement therapy. Those suffering from trauma, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), often find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle of negative or inaccurate thoughts and are unable to stop the feelings that accompany these thoughts. You will learn to overcome inaccurate or negative thinking and replace it with positive and accurate thoughts. CBT also benefits those without mental health conditions. Those seeking to improve their thought life, overcome loss or grief, or better manage emotions, will learn techniques useful to cope with stressful life situations by strengthening the mind.

Solution Focused Therapy
Solution Focused Therapy (Group or Individual) sessions focus on the future and what you plan to accomplish, instead of looking at problems. Oftentimes, reminders of our successes and how we have overcome challenges or obstacles before can be clues to handling problems similar in nature. Solution Focused Therapy can help to manage problems that you may already have the solution for. We will work together and set goals that will enable you to look ahead and not dwell on the past or negative experiences that will prevent you from going forward.

Psychoeducational Therapy
The stigma surrounding depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, eating disorders, etc. can lead to avoidance of seeking treatment. There are also a number of disorders and mental health issues that are misunderstood by family and diagnosed individuals. Psychoeducational therapy will educate individuals and family members to become familiar with the truth about mental illness and how to best treat it bringing order to daily life

Eye-Desensitization Movement Therapy
The aftermath of a disturbing or traumatic event can interrupt the brain’s natural healing process of that memory. When the brain is unable to communicate properly in a way that would allow a natural recovery, PTSD can occur. Eye-Desensitization Movement Therapy sessions can help to weaken the effect of painful memories caused by overwhelming and traumatic events. EDMR activates the brain to resume the natural healing process that was interrupted through taps, sounds, eye movements and sound to help the memories that can still be recalled to be less debilitating.

Collaborative-Language Systems Approach
Collaborative Therapy involves dialogue that allows the individual to tell their story. This is foundational to therapy. We meet the client where they are at and take them through the journey.
