Individual/Family Therapy & Counseling Services

What to expect

 

Therapy sessions typically last 45 minutes and usually occur once per week, although some appointments may be more or less frequent as needed.  Because therapy is different for everyone, the duration can vary greatly based on needs and progress. 

 

Types of Therapy

 

Our providers enjoy providing individual, family, and group therapy and look forward to working with you and/or others in your family.  There are many different theoretical orientations and approaches to therapy based on a therapist’s training, beliefs, and preferences.  Some of the most common include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Play Therapy, Art Therapy, and much more.  

 

Our Approach

 

Our providers’ primary orientation is based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which involves understanding the cyclical relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and enacting change where needed to break the negative cycle causing your distress.  CBT has been proven to be a very effective form of therapy for most mental health problems.  However, every individual is unique and presents with different needs and personality characteristics.  Therefore, our providers also draw upon other modalities of therapy when necessary, as we believe that flexibility is essential in order to maximize treatment efficacy.
