With young children, we utilize research-based play therapy techniques to help them learn to communicate their emotions and build coping skills, communication skills, and skills for emotional processing and regulation. A big part of therapy with young children is the coaching of parents/caregivers on making and sustainable change at home - setting expectations, learning about appropriate developmental capacities and capabilities, and learning and using appropriate proactive and reactive discipline techniques.
Psychological testing can play an important role in mental health care. This type of testing determines if an individual meets the criteria for a mental health disorder or exhibits abnormal mental and/or behavioral health. Psychological testing can guide diagnoses, such as ADHD, anxiety, OCD, depression, personality disorders, etc. The evaluation process often includes questionnaires, clinical interviews, projective measures, and performance-based tasks.
Please reach out to the practice if you have a question about whether your child would benefit from a psychological evaluation.
In couple’s therapy, we offer a shared safe space for you and your partner to address problems in your relationship. Whether you are looking to improve communication, rekindle “that spark”, adjust to a new phase of life, or navigate a separation, we help you and your partner work through the challenges you may be facing. In addition to the therapy styles listed above, our couple’s therapist(s) use the Gottman Method for work with couples.
With adolescents, the therapist uses knowledge about the adolescent brain and its development to help both client and parents understand the complex nature of adolescent relationships, behavior, and decision-making skills. Therapists support the growing need for independence by using therapeutic techniques that evoke deep discussions about cause/effect, actions/reactions, decisions/consequences. Building strong executive functioning skills will help teens in all domains.
In mental health, medication management isn't just handing out pills. It's a collaborative journey between the patient, the prescriber, and often, the therapist, to find the right medications to manage and improve mental health conditions. It involves personalized assessment, careful selection of medication that fits your unique needs, ongoing monitoring of its effectiveness and side effects, and regular adjustments to optimize the benefits while minimizing drawbacks. Think of it as fine-tuning the brain's chemistry to support the healing process alongside therapy - not a magic fix, but a powerful tool for empowering you on your path to mental well-being.
In family therapy, we work with the whole family system and/or parts therein. Many major life events cause the entire dynamic to shift or become dysregulated. Doing family therapy takes time, patience, and vulnerability. Our therapists work hard to create a safe and effective space for families to unpack their problems and develop skills in communication, acceptance, and in accountability taking and boundary making. However you want to improve your family dynamic, we are here to help.
Group therapy is a unique opportunity for people to join together to work on specific issues, skills, or to work together to support one another. At this time, we don't have any active group therapy options. Please reach out to the practice if you have a need, and be sure to look at our social media for group therapy options in the future.
