Over 25% of American adults would qualify for a mental disorder in the course of a year. During an individual's lifetime, there is nearly a 50% chance of having a mental disorder. Despite the widespread prevalence of mental illness, individuals continue to be stigmatized and are fearful of seeking treatment. You are not alone. We understand your needs and strive to make your treatment a pleasant and rewarding experience. We provide treatment for a wide range of disorders including:
Psychotherapy, or "talk therapy", is a way to treat people with a mental disorder by helping them understand their illness. It teaches people strategies and gives them tools to deal with stress and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. Psychotherapy helps patients manage their symptoms better and function at their best in everyday life.
Sometimes psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment for a person, depending on the illness and its severity. Other times, psychotherapy is combined with medications. Therapists work with an individual or families to devise an appropriate treatment plan.
Many kinds of psychotherapy exist. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach. In addition, some therapies have been scientifically tested more than others. Some people may have a treatment plan that includes only one type of psychotherapy. Others receive treatment that includes elements of several different types. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on his or her needs.
Every individual is unique and has different goals for treatment. We work with you to find a solution that best suits your needs. We employ a wide range of different psychotherapies, we can utilize behavioral techniques such as biofeedback, conduct assessments, we can work with your psychiatrist / physician or refer you to a qualified medical professional, or teach you techniques such as self-hypnosis. We do not expect you to make such an important decision based on what we say on our website or over the phone. We invite you to speak with a professional in a free, no obligation consultation to have your questions answered and to see if we are the right choice for you.
