Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Family counseling, or family therapy, is a method to develop and maintain healthy and functional family relationships.
The goal is to identify and address problems in the family. These issues could be emotional, psychological, or behavioral. Family counseling is known to help families see things in broader perspective, which can empower then to change dysfunctional points of view and behavior.
Counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection with their spouse, in all stages of their relationship. Online or in-person sessions are held from the safety of your own home or our office with both couples at a time that is convenient for you through our easy scheduling platform.
Group counseling provides an opportunity to improve personal, emotional and behavioral skills, develop increased confidence, overcome blocks to personal effectiveness, and acquire a keener awareness and appreciation of interactions with others. In a group setting, a group of peers and co-facilitators meet to provide feedback and support for self-improvement. Group members are encouraged to explore and express feelings, examine belief systems, reflect on and receive feedback about patterns of behavior, and work toward making healthy changes. For group counseling to be effective, active participation is encouraged. Participation involves regular attendance and respectful, honest communication. Groups may focus on a specific topic or may be general with a particular emphasis. In group therapy, an individual may discover that human beings have more in common, experiences and challenges may be universally similar.
Many psychiatric disorders will require a two-pronged approach for successful treatment: medication combined with therapy or counseling. We partner with a Medical Doctor who can prescribe medication and we have resident experienced Mental Health Nurse Practitioner to help with anything from ADHD, anxiety, depression, Bipolar, Panic, etc. Medication management is a vital part of this equation, as not all medications will be received or tolerated by patients in the same way. That’s why monitoring medications, their side effects, and their possible interactions with other medications is critical. A big part of what psychiatrists do is to provide psychiatric medication management and assessment. This can seem pretty scary, especially if you’ve never taken such medications before or have taken them before but experienced bad side effects. There can certainly be a lot of unknowns; however, understanding how a psychiatrist and other mental health providers can help you and truly knowing what medication management means is key to feeling comfortable and at ease with the recommended treatment plan.
