Marriage and Couples Therapy:
Marriage or couples therapy can be beneficial if you are experiencing stress or conflict, are stuck in the same negative behavior patterns with your partner, lack good communication skills or simply feel stagnant in your relationship
Life can be both challenging and rewarding. Individuals face multiple stressors, both good and bad, throughout their lives that invite opportunities for personal growth.
Through family therapy, families or individuals within a family begin to understand and learn better ways to interact with each other and resolve conflicts. Family therapy typically brings entire families together for therapy sessions. However, family members may also see a therapist individually.
Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for anger and aggression, low academic effort or motivation, conflicts with parents or peers, anxiety and fear, depression, alcohol and drug use, inappropriate sexuality behavior and many other issues facing young people today.
Child therapy consists of a working therapeutic relationship between a therapist and child. Family therapy may also be prescribed by the therapist if s/he feels it will benefit the child.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is considered a psychotherapy approach. When something traumatic happens to you, your mind may continue to hold on to it in a way that includes the original picture, sounds, feelings, sensations, and thoughts.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is widely regarded as the most effective and versatile therapy model in use today to treat psychological disorders. CBT is favored as an “evidence-based” treatment by the health care community as it has been repeatedly proven effective for reducing symptoms quickly as well as preventing relapse in clinical trials.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is the oldest form of modern psychology, based on a complex theory of human interaction and development. It is referred to as depth psychology, meaning that the work is focused on exploring the unconscious and discovering underlying motives for present behavior in order to bring about insight and self-awareness.
While sexual orientation or gender identity is not inherently a source of psychological distress, having a therapist who understands and is experienced in working with the LGBTQIA community and the unique and diverse issues clients face is essential for positive therapeutic results when couple, individual, or family therapy is needed.
Many people form romantic relationships that stray from the societal norm. Polyamory, open relationships, kink-friendly, BDSM, asexual and aromantic relationships as well as many more fall under this umbrella of alternative relationship styles.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy:
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a multi-faceted approach designed to help people who were chronically suicidal and engaging in self harm behavior. Research continues to show it has the best outcomes for those suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder, but it’s also showing promising results for treating substance abuse, eating disorders and Posttraumatic stress disorder.
Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy where a therapist works with multiple clients at the same time. It is often done in conjunction with individual therapy, but it is not considered necessary to do both.
Do you need counseling?:
It is important to know when you may need counseling. If you are currently experiencing feelings or engaging in behaviors that cause distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning, counseling may help you.
